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 for the Thirty-First Sunday in OrdinaryTime, Year B

Posted by Dim Bulb on September 26, 2015

NOTE: In 2015 this Sunday falls on November 1, the Solemnity of All Saints. Commentaries for that Solemnity can be found here.

READINGS AND OFFICE:

Mass Readings in the RNAB Translation. Used in the USA.

Mass Readings in the NJB Translation. Used 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.
