1. Notes on the Readings
Here you will find notes on the Sunday readings as found in the Catholic lectionary since the Second Vatican Council. The readings are often the same as those found in the Revised Common Lectionary. It is a sincere wish that the notes may be of use to other traditions as well.

2. School of the Word
The SOTW is an adult faith project in biblical studies for the diocese of Dublin. The details may be found on the dedicated webpage and the calendar gives details of what is happening where.

3. General Resources
General resources include praying with Scripture, reading in Church, digital programmes and so forth. Suggestions are always welcome.

I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”.

Francis, bishop of Rome
