Help in Interpreting Scripture

There is a new Vatican Web Site to help people with their Scripture reading.

This program offers Sacred Scripture, its interpretation in light of Sacred Tradition and the teachings of the Magisterium, with appropriate theological commentary and exegesis.

Here is a view of the landing page:

Biblical Text

This allows you to locate specific references to Sacred Scripture made by Doctors of the Church and the Magisterium.

Commentary on the Sunday liturgy
This allows you to cross-reference liturgical texts to homilies of the Church Fathers.
Download or update Biblia Clerus
This allows you to download the entire content of this site onto your computer, or upgrade from the CD version.
The texts of the Magisterium and commentaries

Canon Law and commentaries
This contains the current and earlier versions of both the Latin and Eastern Codes of Canon Law, in parallel and with their fonts.
This provides access to the electronic library of the Congregation for the Clergy, conferences, scholarly analysis, etc.
