"The study of the sacred page, is, as it were, the soul of sacred theology."
This teaching from Vatican II emphasizes the importance of studying the Scriptures. But have you fully considered how you encounter the Word of God during the liturgy?
Many people study the Bible, but few have examined the careful and beautiful composition of the Lectionary for Mass. Even if you have undertaken such a careful examination, imagine doing so anew with an expert guide like Fr. Felix Just, SJ
In this 18-lecture course, Fr. Just explores the structure and contents of the Lectionary, examines its history and development, and suggests ways you can use it more fully. The content will be valuable not only for people already involved in liturgical ministries but also for anyone who wishes to become more familiar with the Lectionary and the liturgical year.
Fr. Just will address all your questions about the Lectionary, including What is the Lectionary for Mass? How was it developed? How is it related to the Bible? How are the biblical readings for each liturgical season selected and arranged? And How could you benefit from using the Lectionary outside of the liturgy, in other spiritual and pastoral ways?
By better understanding of the power and beauty of the Lectionary, you’ll enjoy the gift of being able to use it more regularly and fully throughout the liturgical year.
This course is part of the Learn25 collection and comes with a free PDF study guide.

this really helped me to grasp the patterns and spirit of the various seasons, and the rationale behind the choice of readings.
