Prepare for June 6 Mass

General Liturgical Resources worth having on your shelf:

  • Living Liturgy 2010:  This is a comprehensive liturgy planning guide, with great homiletic resources and reflections for each of the various liturgical ministries to use throughout the week.
  • Companion to the Calendar: Mary Ellen Hynes' book on the calendar is the best available.  I actually think it may have been written for young people, but it reflects the broadest scholarship, a global sensitivity, and awareness of civic and seasonal calendars as well as the liturgical calendar.
  • Jerome Biblical Commentary: If you want to dig deep into the exegesis of the Sunday scriptures, why look any further?  The New JBC is a great investment, and you get a good upper body workout just by carrying it around with you!
  • Preaching the Lectionary: Reginald Fuller's work on lectionary preaching is one of the best one-volumes available. Ecumenical, smart, and a quick one-page-per-Sunday read.
