Living Space

The Living Space section of the site is available here. Originally, this was the work of Fr. Frank Doyle, SJ who passed away in 2011.  The existing commentaries continue to be edited and updated, but new commentaries are not currently being posted, and every once in a while, there is a day with no commentary available. Using this link, is possible to search the Living Space collection for commentaries on particular scripture readings and saints. Using this link, the collection is also searchable by Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John); by Sunday of the Year; or by Saint by Month. Please note that the site is undergoing updating and revisions for functionality.
