Scripture commentary available online

Celebration, the ecumenical worship resource of the National Catholic Reporter Publishing Company, will make available to all NCR subscribers an online archive of commentaries on the Lectionary.
The commentaries were written by Patricia Datchuck Sánchez and were previously published in the homiletic section of Celebration. They offer an exegesis of scriptures for all Sundays and most major jeasts of the A, B and C cycles of the Lectionary.
The archive can be searched by year, season or a specific Sunday. It is being offered to NCR subscribers without charge. To register for a password, visit the Celebration Web site at and click the Sánchez Archives button.
Sánchez, a regular contributor to Celebration for over 20 years, holds an M.A. in literature and religion of the Bible from a joint degree program with Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary in New York.
