================================================================

 

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.

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

Secondary comments

 

Matthew 28:1-10

John 20:1-9, the Gospel scheduled for this Mass, was treated last year at E:\Microsoft Office\Word\Letters\OLMC\Bible Study1 2004\Bible Study040411_Easter_42ABC.doc. According to the rubrics, “The Gospel from the Easter Vigil [page 342] (see n. 41) may also be read in place of the following Gospel [John  20:1-9] at any time of the day.”
