Sunday Readings For June 24 & 25

Our commitment to Christ will be put to the test. We will hear whispered warnings and denunciations, as Jeremiah does in the first reading. Even so-called friends will try to trap and trip us up. For his sake we will bear insults and be made outcasts — even in our own homes, we hear in the...

Sunday Readings For June 17 & 18- The Most Holy Body And Blood Of Christ

The Eucharist is given to us as a challenge and a promise. That’s how Jesus presents it in the Gospel. He doesn’t make it easy for those who hear him. They are repulsed and offended at his words. Even when they begin to quarrel, he insists on describing the eating and drinking of his flesh and...

Sunday Readings For June 10 & 11- The Most Holy Trinity

We often begin Mass with the prayer from the epistle: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.” We praise the God who has revealed himself as a Trinity, a communion of persons. Communion with the Trinity is the goal of...

Sunday Readings For June 3 & 4- Pentecost

The giving of the Spirit to the new people of God crowns the mighty acts of the Father in salvation history. The Jewish feast of Pentecost called all devout Jews to Jerusalem to celebrate their birth as God’s chosen people, in the covenant Law given to Moses at Sinai (see Leviticus 23:15-21;...

Sunday Readings For May 27 & 28- 7th Sunday Of Easter, Celebration Of The Ascension Of The Lord

Jesus has been taken up into heaven as we begin the first reading. His disciples — including the apostles and Mary — return to the upper room where he celebrated the Last Supper (see Luke 22:12). There, they devote themselves with one accord to prayer, awaiting the Spirit that he promised...

Sunday Readings For May 20 & 21 -Sixth Sunday Of Easter

Jesus will not leave us alone. He won’t make us children of God in baptism only to leave us “orphans,” he assures us in the Gospel (see Romans 8:14-17). He asks the Father to give us his Spirit, to dwell with us and keep us united in the life he shares with the Father. We see the promised...

Since 1895, The Tidings has been telling the story of the Catholic Church — both here in Los Angeles and across the globe. On July 1, 2016, we transformed the Tidings newspaper into a multimedia platform, Angelus News.

Angelus is the weekly print “home” for, John Allen and his colleague, Inés San Martin. Nationally known Catholic journalists and essayists like Ruben Navarrette, Kathryn Lopez, Grazie Pozo Christie, and Mike Aquilina regularly contribute. Best-selling Catholic author, Dr. Scott Hahn, writes a weekly Scripture column for us. These voices complement key contributors like Archbishop Gomez, Bishop Robert Barron, Father Ronald Rolheiser and Heather King.

Angelus News provides national and worldwide reporting, stunning photography and a design that’s attractive to Catholics of every age. Features include: a weekly newsmagazine, a complete daily digital edition, social media channels and Always Forward, our weekday digital newsletter.

As the largest archdiocese in the United States, we have a great story to tell. Our parishes, pastors and community of faith are the core of our story. And Angelus News tells it well.

Sunday Readings For May 13 & 14- Fifth Sunday Of Easter

By his death, resurrection and ascension, Jesus has gone ahead to prepare a place for us in his Father’s house. His Father’s house is no longer a temple made by human hands. It is the spiritual house of the Church, built on the living stone of Christ’s body. As Peter interprets the...

Sunday Readings For May 6 & 7 - The Fourth Sunday Of Easter

Easter’s empty tomb is a call to conversion. By this tomb, we should know for certain that God has made Jesus both Lord and Messiah, as Peter preaches in the first reading. He is the “Lord,” the divine Son that David foresaw at God’s right hand (see Psalms 110:1,3; 132:10-11; Acts 2:34)....

Sunday Readings For April 29 & 30 - Third Sunday Of Easter

We should put ourselves in the shoes of the disciples in the Gospel. Downcast and confused they’re making their way down the road, unable to understand all the things that have occurred. They know what they’ve seen — a prophet mighty in word and deed. They know what they were hoping for — that...

Sunday Readings For April 15 & 16 - Easter Sunday

Jesus is nowhere visible. Yet the Gospel tells us that Peter and John “saw and believed.” What did they see? Burial shrouds lying on the floor of an empty tomb. Maybe that convinced them that he hadn’t been carted off by grave robbers, who usually stole the expensive burial linens and left the...

Sunday Readings For April 8 & 9 - Palm Sunday

“All this has come to pass that the writings of the prophets may be fulfilled,” Jesus says in today’s Gospel (Matthew 26:56). Indeed, we have reached the climax of the liturgical year, the highest peak of salvation history, when all that has been anticipated and promised is to be...

Sunday Readings For April 1 & 2

As we draw near to the end of Lent, the Gospel clearly has Jesus’ passion and death in view. That’s why John gives us the detail about Lazarus’ sister, Mary — that she is the one who anointed the Lord for burial (see John 12:3,7). His disciples warn against returning to Judea; Thomas even...

Sunday Readings For March 25 & 26

God’s ways of seeing are not our ways, we hear in the first reading. Jesus illustrates this in the Gospel — as the blind man comes to see and the Pharisees are made blind. The blind man stands for all humanity. “Born totally in sin” he is made a new creation by the saving power of...

Sunday Readings For March 18 & 19

The Israelites’ hearts were hardened by their hardships in the desert. Though they saw God’s mighty deeds, in their thirst they grumble and put God to the test in the first reading — a crisis point recalled also in the psalm. Jesus is thirsty, too, in the Gospel. He thirsts for souls (see...

Sunday Readings For March 11 & 12

The Gospel portrays Jesus as a new and greater Moses. Moses also took three companions up a mountain and on the seventh day was overshadowed by the shining cloud of God’s presence. He, too, spoke with God and his face and clothing were made radiant in the encounter (see Exodus 24,34). But...
