Sunday, August 26 2012: Resources for Sunday Mass (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms)
Posted by Dim Bulb on August 20, 2012
This post contains resources (mostly biblical and homiletic) for this Sunday’s Mass according to both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. I hope to substantially update the Ordinary Form resources during the week, and also to add some additional homilies and homily notes to the Extraordinary Form.
TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
READINGS AND OFFICE:
- Readings in the Revised New American Bible. Used in U.S.A.
- Readings in the New Jerusalem Bible. Used in most other English speaking countries. Scroll down slightly to find. For some reason the Epistle reading follows after the Gospel.
- Daily Office (Anglican Use). ”Briefly, it is a provision for an “Anglican style” liturgy similar to the Book of Common Prayer as an ecclesiastically approved variant on the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.” More info.
Update: GENERAL RESOURCES: On the readings as a whole. Commentaries on individual readings further below.
- Are You In, or Are you Out? A Call For Decision. Blog post on the readings by Catholic Biblical scholar, Dr. John Bergsma at the Sacred Page Blog.
- Word Sunday. Time sensitive link. Notes on the readings, podcast, children’s reading, family activity.
- Sacerdos. Give the theme of the readings, the doctrinal message, and pastoral application.
- Lector Notes. Brief historical and theological background on the readings. Can be printed out, copied, and used as bulletin insert.
- The Bible Workshop. Some Relevant links, followed by a reading guide, a comparison of the readings, and suggestions for a lesson (i.e., a homily).
- The Wednesday Word. So called because its issued on Wednesdays, though it deals with the Sunday readings. Designed for prayer and reflection, the pdf document ends with Father Dom Henry Wansbrough’s reflections on the first and second readings. Fr. Wansbrough is General Editor of the New Jerusalem Bible and contributed commentaries on Matt, Mark, and the Pastorals in A New Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture.
