CATHOLIC MATTERS --- The Sunday Readings

The Sunday Readings by Fr. Kevin O'Sullivan, O.F.M., gives the readings for the Masses of Sundays and Holydays of Obligation for the current year. The author is a biblical scholar of deep learning and long years of teaching and pastoral experience. After each reading he gives an explanation of the text, first giving the historical and literary background of the author and then explaining the Biblical text. Next he gives an application of the reading to the lives and problems of modern Catholics. These are always deeply spiritual and soul-searching. The author follows this plan for each Sunday and the reader will find his explanation of the biblical texts most helpful and illuminating.
These readings will be a great help as they provide the biblical data on each reading which would otherwise be able to be obtained only from searching through text-books and commentaries. They give the meaning of the sacred text and of God's message and they provide very valuable ideas and suggestions for consideration.
