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

Resources for Pentecost Sunday Mass (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms)

Posted by Dim Bulb on May 20, 2012

Resources for the Vigil Mass (Ordinary Form) can be found here. Resources for the entire week (20th–27th) are here.

This post contains resources for the Pentecost Sunday Mass, including both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. The content is as follows: 1. General Resources, consisting of homilies, blog posts, podcasts, etc.  2. Resources for the Ordinary Form, consisting mostly of commentaries on all the readings (including the alternate readings), applicable catechism texts, and homilies on specific texts.  3. Resources for the Extraordinary Form, also consisting of commentaries on the readings, applicable catechism texts, and homilies on specific texts. I hope to add some more resources before Pentecost.
