Hebrews Is On Deck

It hasn't been all that long since I realized that the "ordered-ness" or ordinary time extends to the second readings as well. For the last five weeks, we've been reading through the letter of James. The next letter on deck is Hebrews.

For those of you who were glad to finish James because it's hard to hear, don't expect Hebrews to be any easier. Hebrews is more theological (I can say this because I just finished reading it in one sitting), but it is no less difficult! We go from hard to hear to hard to understand!

I'd suggest - if you can - that you take some time and read it all - we only read excerpts in mass, and getting the context is good. We spend the next seven weeks in Hebrews, and that takes us through the end of the liturgical year. (We get interrupted by All Saint's Day, which falls on a Sunday this year!)
