Sunday Homily Resources
Sunday Readings, in summary and in full (NRSV); plus sample homilies from various authors. If you can send me good stuff, I’ll use it here. For “Lectio Divina” reflections on the text of the Sunday readings please see http://www.tarsus.ie/page6/index.html (Fr. Kieran O’Mahony’s excellent Biblical Resources website).
