Tasting the Word of God, vol. 1: Commentaries on the Sunday Lectionary

?In the sacred books the Father who is in heaven meets his children with great love and speaks with them; and the force in the Word of God is so great that it remains the support and energy of the Church, the strength of faith for her children, the food of the soul, the pure and perennial source of spiritual life.?

These words from Vatican II's Divine Revelation

Overview

?In the sacred books the Father who is in heaven meets his children with great love and speaks with them; and the force in the Word of God is so great that it remains the support and energy of the Church, the strength of faith for her children, the food of the soul, the pure and perennial source of spiritual life.?

These words from Vatican II's Divine Revelation can serve as a vital foundation for these commentaries on the Lectionary readings for the cycle of the Church's liturgy, worship, prayer and preaching. The readings serve to connect us as the universal Church, the Body of Christ praying together with one heart, mind, and soul. The liturgy of Word and Eucharist is like a net spread across the world, holding it together and gathering all peoples into one before God. These commentaries serve as jumping off places, and there cannot be enough of them. No matter how many times we celebrate the liturgies of the Church's year, there is always more to say, more food for thought, more hope and courage distilled, an ever-growing awareness of God's presence among us.
