Trinity Sunday

Today we invite you to explore the Spirit “written upon our hearts” with the help of Fr. Richard Rohr and a mature spirituality; engage lessons from the Church’s transition to Vatican II, and its move away from that renewal in the present; and embody a spirituality of resilience, justice, and care for our neighbors with the help of The Center for Action and Contemplation, John O’Donohue, and the examples of Laundry Love and Little Free Pantries.

The Just Word This Week

Inclusive. Life-giving. Liberating.

The Just Word Commentary is a three-year project, providing life-giving, liberatory commentaries on the Catholic lectionary readings for all three years the Church has provided them (Designated Year A, Year B, and Year C). The new yearly cycle begins on the first Sunday of Advent. Right now, we are headed into Year B of the cycle, which takes its gospel readings from the book of Mark. Year A uses the book of Matthew, and Year C uses the book of Luke.

As we transition out of Year A into Year B, we want to give a huge thank you to our Year A writers for their deep thoughts and feelings. It’s not an easy thing to write from a Catholic perspective that often stands with those that the Church itself does not. 

We’re so excited for our upcoming year of commentaries we have lined up, and we hope you’ll join us once again. We’d love to connect with you! Let us know your favorite entry so far or something you would love to see in Year B ahead!
