1I am stopping doing 42ABC in order to take up 41ABC for the Easter Vigil.
Scriptural references to the Lectionary follow. Since the main purpose of these Notes is annotating the scriptural references in the index at www.western-civilization.com , references pertinent, but not fitting the flow imposed above, are included below. I do not assume that the reader is following the readings cited either in the Lectionary or in the Bible. Like the footnotes, the citations are for reference purposes for anyone interested. The large, bold letters facilitate locating exactly what the Lectionary presents for these Notes.
Acts 10:34A, 37-43
Also treated at E:\Microsoft Office\Word\Letters\OLMC\
In my remarks for 2003, I wonder whether the breviary, the Divine Office, is pitched about the Fourth grade level, just above the beginning level of literacy, so that everyone may begin there to then proceed to more esoteric levels. I have recently objected to Daily Mass sermons pitched at the Fourth Grade level at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, in Newport News, Virginia.
Psalm 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23
Psalm 118 is also treated at E:\Microsoft Office\Word\Letters\OLMC\
