This resource provides invaluable commentary on the
Lectionary readings for Year C (including the Responsorial Psalm) for Sundays,
holydays of obligation, and feasts and solemnities that may occur on a Sunday.
Written in a pastoral tone, it offers historical-critical background on each of
the readings and underscores their relevance to life today. Thematically
related quotations from major Church documents are included with each Scripture
background to provide context and connections to Church teaching. Organised by
the liturgical calendar, each season of readings begins with an overview of the
season and a brief look at where the readings come from and any unifying
messages or themes present throughout the selected readings. Scripture
Backgrounds for the Sunday Lectionary, Year C is written by a team of writers
with a broad range of theological, pastoral, and catechetical experience. Their
reflections offer homilists a solid foundation from which to begin the process
of preparing to speak the Word of God to their assemblies.
