The Word Among Us is an online Catholic magazine that provides reflections to accompany the Scripture readings from daily Catholic masses. The reflections attempt to explain the religious meanings of the readings and draw practical lessons for the reader. They also often tie the readings in with current events in the world.
Word on Fire is a ministry of Bishop Robert Barron, and the website provides reflections on Scripture, the Catechism, liturgical readings, saints and liturgical seasons. Resource types include video and written reflections. The website also provides a podcast, and some of the reflections enable users to add comments.
