Weekly Lectionary Gospel (4th Sunday Ordinary Time) & Reflection Resources on the Gospel

Happy February and the Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time.  Don’t get too used to those green vestments as we’re only 17 days away from Ash Wednesday on February 18th.

In a previous post I gave a link to the folder where I place an illuminated version of the weekly lectionary gospel.  I’ll continue to post to that location.  I’m planning on posting links each Saturday or Sunday to the gospel for the upcoming link. See above for what this week’s file looks like:

You can get the PDF version here.  And the editable PPT version here.

Disclaimer – Since I don’t seek to profit from these files, I don’t cite the source for each of the images found through a Google Search.

As mentioned previously, my students use the weekly gospel file as a focus for the prayer they lead at the start of class each day.  Frequently, a student offers a particularly meaningful reflection on the gospel.

Here’s some other Catholic sites which offer reflections on weekly and/or daily gospels:

My daily go-to site is from Creighton University in Omaha.  They have many resources – the monthly calendar is great as it offers a link to the scripture for the day at the USCCB website and a brief reflection from a Creighton staff member.  I find the reflections to be down-to-earth, relevant, and useful in my own reflection.

Thinking of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, they offer a brief video reflection on the scripture for the day found here.

A few Catholic publishers offer scripture reflections.  Long respected RCL Benziger offers a reflection and resources.

A Catholic Mom – resources for the littlest ones.

A few more of note – Pencil Preaching; Daily Bread, Center for Action and Contemplation (Fr. Richard Rohr) and the very brief Brother Give Us A Word.
