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 30, 2012~Resources for Sunday Mass (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms)

Posted by Dim Bulb on September 25, 2012

ORDINARY FORM
TWENTY-SIXTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME

READINGS AND OFFICES:

  • Mass Readings in the NJB TranslationUsed in most English speaking countries. 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.

GENERAL RESOURCES: 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.
  • More pending.

COMMENTARIES & NOTES ON THE FIRST READING: Num 11:25-29.

  • Pending (Maybe): My Notes on Numbers 11:25-29.
  • Update: On the Way to the Promised Land. Scroll down slightly for the links. I suggest reading the entire essay but for the purpose of today’s first reading begin by clicking on the link “Testing in the Wilderness” and read through to the end. This will help situate the Number’s reading in its broader (and important) context.
