Welcome

Catholics today are hungering to understand the Bible better, especially when it comes to the readings we encounter in the Sunday liturgy. Opening the Word is a new resource that will help you unpack the Sunday readings and apply it to your life in a profound way.

Sunday Readings


You will have the the Sunday scripture reading for the entire liturgical year. Right in the palm of your hand, you’ll have commentary from scripture scholars on Sunday readings — revealing the messages and helping you apply them to your daily life.

Video Reflection




A short video reflection from a dynamic, engaging scripture teacher will clarify the meaning of the Sunday readings. Scripture Teachers include Dr. Edward Sri, Dr. Tim Gray, Scott Powell, Fr. John Riley and Mary Healy.

Lectio Divina


Lectio Divina is a practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer. You’ll have a place to jot down your own personal reflections, with practical application points for each day of the week.
