Pastoral Resources from Claretian Communications, Philippines

There is an incredibly rich array of resources on this web site. There are some technical glitches, annoying popups, a sometime confusing navigation scheme, pages overloaded with images... but the treasure trove one discovers if one is patient is well worth it!

Here are some of the things you will find:

Bible: Download the Christian Community Bible, Catholic Pastoral Edition in different languages (English, Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilonggo, Bahasa, & Chinese)

Daily Gospel 2005: with complete scriptural reflections for your daily use... including the Tagalog version, Pandesal.

Gospel Reflections: by Fr. Gerry Pierse, C.Ss.R., from his book Sundays Into Silence: A
Pathway to Life and Weekly Bible Commentaries from Diario Biblico.

Liturgical Drawings: Our artist, Maria d.c. Zamora Crosby, is pleased to share with you her artwork. You can use it for non-commercial purposes.

Liturgy Alive: Your Daily Liturgy taken from the book Liturgy Alive, Models of Celebrations (Sundays & Weekdays).

A Certain Jesus: Ideal for catechetical and liturgical dramatization for Sunday's gospels.

Weekday Liturgical Reflections: Selection of our best commentaries for weekdays. You know that the liturgical readings for Sundays have a three year cycle: Years A, B and C. But the gospel readings for weekdays are repeated every year.

Also available on this page, a number of excellent insperational power point presentations.
