What would you get if you combined the Lectionary with the Catechism of the Catholic Church? Opening the Scriptures.
If you're a catechist responsible for your parish's RCIA program, a homilist, or an in-the-pew Catholic who's searching for a way to deepen your experience of the Sunday Reading at mass... this is the book for you.
Opening the Scriptures is a unique resource that's tailor-made for those who teach, those who preach, and those who continue to reach for a deeper understanding of the Word of God presented in the celebration of the Eucharist.
Opening the Scriptures gives you:
- A listing of the readings for every Sunday and holy day for Cycles A, B, and C.
- Themes for each of that day's readings.
- Reference numbers from the Catechism of the Catholic Church relating to each day's themes.
- A "reverse index": The numbers of the Catechism paragraphs with a listing of the theme and the corresponding Sundays and holy days on which that theme is presented in the readings.
Includes Lectionary listings and the Catechism references, an unbeatable combination. A way to make Lectionary - based catechesis even more effective!
