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 Sundays, Feasts, and Solemnities, Year B


The Structure of this Page: The structure is very simple. I’ve divided it into several sections: 1. Solemnities and Feasts; 2. Advent; 3. Christmas/Epiphany; 4. Lent; 5. Easter; 6. Ordinary Time. Some resources are already available. For the most part this page will be filled out during the 2015 Lectionary Year which will begin on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014.
