Study of the Readings

Ed. by
Joyce Ann Zimmerman, et al.

• Words, Phrases
• To the point

• First Two Readings


The Word Engaged

Kavanaugh, S. J.

Time and Eternity

Will the tears of loss be gently dried, the pain dissolved in celebration? Will God indeed make all things new, bright, beautiful and alive again?


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

Americans and Honor

For Americans, the notion of honor carries nowhere near the importance that it does in the Mediterranean world. How, then, can American believers appreciate what John the evangelist writes about Jesus and his Father in today's Scripture?


Thoughts from the
Early Church

Cyril of Alexandria

Do you not see what is new in Christ's love for us? The law commanded people to love their brothers and sisters as they love themselves, but our Lord Jesus Christ loved us more than himself.


Preparing for Sunday

Gillick, S. J.

Scripture In Depth

Reginald H. Fuller

When the apostles return to the church in Syrian Antioch, they report, not what they had done, but what “God had done with them.” It was he, not their own missionary strategy, that had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles.
