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.

Psalm 23:1-3, 3-4, 5, 6 (1)

To return directly to the Sunday readings, Cycle B uses the Twenty-third Psalm only here; Cycle C does not use it; Cycle A uses it four times.  Funeral Rites[7] uses it in four places: (1) Vigil for a Deceased Child; (2) Funerals for Adults, Responsorial 1, (3) Funerals for Baptized Children, Responsorial 1, and (4) Antiphons and Psalms 1. The Twenty-third Psalm is the famous Good Shepherd Psalm, available four times at Funerals,[8] as mentioned, and three times in Pastoral Care of the Sick.[9]  My reason for capitalizing Twenty-Third is that psalm is the 22nd in the Codex Sinaiticus.

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the forgiveness of sins, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “mercifully increase the grace of your gifts.”[33]  The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is The Lord is my shepherd: there is nothing I shall want.[34]  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 0920 Missal Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time 120617pdf/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 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?  (Micah 6:8).[35]
