Study of the Readings

Joyce Ann Zimmerman, ed.

• Words, Phrases
• To the point
• First Two Readings


The Word Encountered

John Kavanaugh, S. J.

At stake are answers to questions about the universe. What is at the bottom of things? Is it the grind of impersonal machinery doomed to the laws of entropy?


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

Each Gospel singles out an all important appearance of Jesus to the disciples in which they are commissioned for a task.


Thoughts from the
Early Church

Edith Barnecut, O.S.B., ed.

Nicholas Cabasilas

God bestowed many blessings on his creation in every age, but you will not find any of them being ascribed to the Father alone, or to the Son, or to the Spirit.


Preparing for Sunday

Gillick, S. J.

Responding is relational,
Reacting is instinctual.


Scripture In Depth

Reginald H. Fuller
