My sister-in-love is in the final throes of lung cancer before going home.  My prayer through all of this is for Wisdom, Wisdom to Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations (Psalm 96:3).  My sister-in-love is at peace in her soul, where the rest of us who love her so, need to be.

Jeremiah 1:18

Philipp Melanchthon (1497-1560), “An Ecclesiasticall [sic] Exposition upon Saint Matthew 13”[2]

“The strangeness and  unusual sight of Christ’s miracles might have given them occasion to think that he was one of the dead prophets, for they believed that those who were restored from the dead to life were indued by God with far greater power and virtue than they had before, when they were alive;.”

 

 

Jeremiah 1:18[3]

Martin Luther (1483-1546), “Lecture on Psalm 45 (1532)”

Luther writes, “Otherwise the churches will soon be scattered if there are not people who fight at the battlefront and refute the adversaries, people who expound the passages and ideas of Scripture that the enemies have stolen and defend the truth.”  Luther is concerned about the Church.  The revolutionaries concern for unintended consequences for the Church increases as time goes on.

 

 

Johann Arndt (1555-1621), “The Whole Psalter of David, the Holy King and Prophet:  Third Sermon on Psalm 60”

Arndt writes, “God is our Duke and Leader as well as you fortress . . . ”

He (Jesus) lets them(the princes of the priests) know that the foolish contrivances and maneuvers by which they labored to suppress the truth were powerless to accomplish anything against him, but rather the profound wisdom of God had foreseen and set the time when the prince of this world would be justly tricked into losing his ill-gotten prey, the human race, even as he strove by unjust means to keep it.”

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the Gloria, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “we may honor you with all our mind.”[15]  The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations (Psalm 96:3).[16]  Between November 25, 2011 and November 25, 2012, Personal Notes systematically examined the illiterate 2011 Missal.  For a more thorough examination of the illiterate 2011 Roman Missal, go to 1610 Missal: Thirty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time 121125.pdf/htm at http://www.western-civilization.com/CBQ/Personal%20Notes/Personal%20Notes.htm.

 

 

 

This is a call for grace that some Black Baptists bring to mind with And when he thus had spoken, he cried out with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth (John 11:43).[17] 

 

Addenda

 

Due to greater responsiveness at the National Catholic Reporter blog, beginning with the Fourth Sunday in Lent, Reading 032B, March 15, 2015, my interest began shifting from annotating my index here, to engaging conversation there.  I may keep up the Bibliography, but without further comment.  Time will tell.

 

As, on June 23, 2015, I prepared Reading 110B for the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary time for July 26, I decided to begin reading unread book reviews and articles from Theological Studies for two reasons.  The first is I have already read every article cited in the Catholic Biblical Quarterly.  The second is that traditionally Theological Studies articles have been more helpful to my prayer life.  I also began reading unread book reviews in the Biblical Quarterly and unread sections in Reformation Commentary on Scripture, viz., John and Psalms.
