The Divine Lamp

The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple…Make thy face shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes

Sunday, May 13: Mass Resources for the Sixth Sunday of Easter (Ordinary Form) and for the Fifth Sunday of Easter (Extraordinary Form)

Posted by Dim Bulb on May 10, 2012

This post contains resources (mostly biblical and homiletic) for the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. The post is not yet complete and will be updated several times throughout the remainder of the week. Keep in mind that in the OF this Sunday is termed the Sixth Sunday of Easter, while in the EF it is termed the Fifth Sunday after Easter. The former emphasizes Easter Sunday as part of the Easter season, while the latter emphasizes Easter Sunday as the start of the Easter season; it is, of course, both.
