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, 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.

ORDINARY FORM
TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

READINGS AND OFFICE:

  • 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.

  • 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.

COMMENTARIES ON THE FIRST READING: Josh 24:1-2a, 15-17, 18b.

COMMENTARIES ON THE RESPONSORIAL: Ps 34:2-3, 16-17, 18-19, 20-21.

COMMENTARIES ON THE SECOND READING: Eph 5:21-32.

COMMENTARIES ON THE GOSPEL READING: John 6:60-69.

Update: PODCASTS:
