The Congregation for the Clergy has launched a new website with a fabulous resource for studying Scripture with the Church: Biblia Clerus.

From the website:

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

The downloadable version allows you to connect Sacred Scripture to the complete works of many Doctors of the Church, Councils, Encyclicals, teachings of the Popes, Catechisms, as well as commentaries from secular literature, etc.

The site is available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

All of this is being made available at no charge. What a Christmas present!

This will be a wonderful resource for homilists; just look up the appointed text, and in the sidebar get immediate references to all sorts of magisterial commentary on it. I looked at the opening of the Gospel of John, and found references to 45 different sources, many of them with multiple citations.

Wow, indeed!
