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

Commentaries and Resources for the First Sunday of Advent (Extraordinary Form)

Posted by Dim Bulb on November 23, 2013

EXTRAORDINARY FORM
FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT

MISSAL AND BREVIARY:

COMMENTARIES ON THE LESSON: Romans 13:11-14. Suggested Theme: Spiritual Combat against sin (Rom 7:23; Heb 12:4; 1 Pet 2:11); Satan (Lk 22:31-32; 2 Cor 2:11; Eph 6:10-13; 1 Pet 5:8-9). A combat fought with divine weapons (2 Cor  6:7; 10:3-4), the whole armor of God (Eph 6:13-18). It takes courage (Josh 1:9; 10:25; 1 Cor 16:13); steadfastness and endurance (2 Thess 1:4; Heb 10:23; 1 Pet 5:9-10); staying alert (1 Pet 5:8; 1 Cor 16:13; Eph 6:18); and especially prayer (Ps 55:16-8; Eph 6:18; Mt 6:13; 26:41).

COMMENTARIES ON THE GOSPEL: Luke 21:25-33. Suggested Theme: He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. See CCC 668-682.

  • Pending. My Notes on Luke 21:25-33. Still hoping to post, but don’t hold your breath.
