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, September 2 2012: Resources for Sunday Mass (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms)

Posted by Dim Bulb on August 27, 2012

This post contains biblical and homiletic resources for this Sunday’s Mass for both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. It is not yet complete and I hope to add some podcasts under the Ordinary Form, and some more homilies and homily notes under the Extraordinary Form. I hope to add a few more commentaries as well.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2012
ORDINARY FORM

TWENTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

READINGS AND MISSAL:

  • Readings in the New Jerusalem BibleUsed in most other English speaking countries. Scroll down slightly to find. For some reason the Epistle reading follows after the Gospel.
  • Anglican Use Daily Office. ”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.

GENERAL RESOURCES: On the readings as a whole. Commentaries on individual readings further below.

  • Word Sunday. The readings in both and literal translation, notes on the text, podcast, children’s reading.
  • SacerdosGives 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. Links to several relevant articles, contains a reading guide to the gospel text, a comparison of the readings, suggestions for a lesson (i.e., homily).
  • The Wednesday WordI’m not sure why it’s called “The Wednesday Word” since 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.
