My apologies - I was two-thirds of the way done with adding the screen shots last night when my internet went down for several hours. This is "yesterday's" post.

Answer to question 1:

Using a Basic search, find all references to the Sermon on the Mount in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

If one doesn’t know the reference for the Sermon on the Mount, start with a basic search for “Sermon on the Mount”. You will find it is Matthew 5-7.

One needs an all text basic search of the Catechism of the Catholic Church for the reference <Mt 5-7>. The three versions of the CCC that I own give slightly different results.

Answer to question 2

Using a Basic search, find when in the liturgical year the Bread of Life Discourse is used as a Sunday reading in Catholic Daily Readings  (U.S. Lectionary). Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2016.

Using the same technique as before, find the reference for the Bread of Life Discourse … oops, if you look carefully it appears that even the Catholic Bible Dictionary is rather loose regarding its boundaries.

I’ll go with John 6:22-59 which is the pericope boundaries in the NABRE; John 6:32-58 excludes most of the context text and is, more strictly, the discourse.

To find the Bread of Life discourse in the lectionary is a simple {Label Lectionary Reading WHERE Title ~ Gospel AND References ~ <Jn 6:22-59>}. Given the way that calendar is coded e.g., <CatholicCalendar = Ord Time 18 Sun B>, there is no simple way to screen for Sunday. So simply scan your results to find the answer:

  • Body and Blood of Christ, Year A
  • 18th- 20th Sundays in Ordinary Time, Year B
