At the Second Vatican Council the bishops declared, "The treasures of the Bible are to be opened up more lavishly so that a richer fare may be provided for the faithful at the table of God's word." From that declaration came the Lectionary for Mass, a three-year cycle of readings for Sundays and major feasts. Word to Worship now supports that lectionary, including support for the deuterocanonical books (Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, and Baruch) which previously would not have been recognized, and we welcome our many Roman Catholic friends who follow it.
It is a joy to open this site more lavishly to all those who worship our Risen Lord, Christ Jesus so we may honor him more fully. I echo the desire of that Council for all the faithful that "through Christ the Mediator, they should be drawn day by day into ever more perfect union with God and with each other, so that finally God may be all in all." Amen.
