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 16: Resources for Sunday Mass (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms)

Posted by Dim Bulb on September 11, 2012

This post is not yet complete. I hope to have some podcast and general resource links up by Wednesday night. I hope to have my own notes on Isaiah up by Thursday evening.

ORDINARY FORM
TWENTY-FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

READINGS AND OFFICE:

  • Mass Readings (NJB). Scroll down. I’ve seen conflicting reports concerning whether or not it is the JB, or the NJB that is currently used in most English speaking nations. If anyone knows of a Bishop’s Conference site that has a set up similar to the US Bishop’s site linked above (but using the JB or NJB), please let me know.
  • 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.

Update: GENERAL RESOURCES: Individual sites that usually deal with the readings as a whole. Commentaries on the 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 WordIt’s about the Sunday readings, but the document is posted on Wednesday, hence the name. 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: Isaiah 50:5-9a.

  • My Notes on Isaiah 50:5-9a. Pending.

COMMENTARIES ON THE RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Ps 116:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9. Please note that the USCCB website has mislabeled this psalm 114.

  • St Augustine’s Notes on Psalm 116. Pending.

COMMENTARIES ON THE SECOND READING: James 2:14-18.

COMMENTARIES ON THE GOSPEL: Mark 8:27-35.

PODCASTS:

  • EWTN Podcast on Mark. Listen to episode 8 which shows the connection between the two-stage healing of the blind man and Peter’s less than clear insight into what it means that Jesus is the Christ.
  • Dr. Scott Hahn’s Podcast. Brief overview of the readings. Usually does a good job of highlighting the major theme(s) of the readings.

Dominica XVI Post Pentecosten III. Septembris ~ II. classis

MISSAL AND BREVIARY:
