Notes

  1. If you click on the Scripture citations above, it will take you to that passage in the NAB Bible on the USCCB website. The “Vatican link” on the right will take you to the general audience reflecting on that passage.
  2. The Psalms are numbered above according to the Hebrew (Masoretic) text, as is common among modern Catholic translations. In the general audiences, the Hebrew numbering is used, followed by the Greek (Septuagint) numbering in brackets.
