A question from a priest friend, for some discussion.
A question from a confrère. Why does the 1962MR have scriptural readings that are mostly from Paul’s Epistles and Matthew’s Gospel?
I don’t know.
I suppose is makes sense that the reading generally called the Epistle be from letter, and most of those are by St. Paul. I also suppose more reflection was given to those letters in the Church of Rome and areas where some Mass formularies were developed.
As far as the Gospel of Matthew is concerned….
Perhaps readers can help?
