USCCB launches Daily Readings in Spanish Online

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has made the daily readings for Mass in Spanish available online.

“Being able to provide the daily readings in Spanish online has been a long journey. We are happy to see this work turned into a reality,” said Bishop John C. Wester of Salt Lake City, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Communications.  “This is part of our continued efforts to answer the pastoral needs of Hispanics and Spanish speaking Catholics and to provide them resources and information in ways that encourage them to grow in their faith.”

The daily readings in Spanish are drawn from the Lectionary published in Mexico and approved for use in the United States by the U.S. bishops.

Hispanics represent 16 percent of the total U.S. population and about 40 percent of U.S. Catholics; 64 percent of Hispanic Catholics attend church regularly.

The daily readings in English are among the most popular resources on the USCCB website with a monthly average of 3.3 million unique page views.  Nearly 49,000 people receive the daily readings in English by email, a feature that soon will be available for the Spanish-language readings.

The daily readings in Spanish can be found at www.usccb.org by selecting: “Bible,” “Today’s Readings,” and “En Español.”

USCCB also provides updates on USCCB news and faith-building resources in Spanish on Facebook at www.facebook.com/USCCBEspanol and Twitter at https://twitter.com/USCCBEspanol.

Bilingual resources for dioceses, parishes and ministry groups are also available at www.myusccb.org.
