    hi hukok,
    thanks for your visit and message on my blog!!

    Yesterday I read the Gayla’s post and I liked it a lot, but sure I prefer your catholic version…

  2. onionboy says:

    This is the great thing about the “extra” books; He has more places to be clearly seen.

  3. ukok says:


    you have such an advantage over me, you write excellent English and I write very bad italian!


    you’re ‘pip on’ matey, I don’t know how non-Catholics put up with having had books ripped out of there’s ๐Ÿ˜‰

    God Bless.

    p.s. sorry I didn’t get back to your email the other day, been rushed off my feet lately, I have lot’s of catching up to do!

  4. Julie D. says:

    I guess Gayla read my mind! I loved that post of hers and had it in mind to work on a Catholic version. Thank goodness you did it first so I can just shamelessly steal it … except perhaps that will ruin my “going to Purgatory” status. :-0

  5. Lorna says:


    wrote a comment and then it was zapped into cyberspace. Maybe it’s just as well

    be blessed ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Gayla says:

    Deb, that’s really beautiful. I think I’m going to copy it along with mine to keep in my Bible.

    And just as a disclaimer to the other commenters. I didn’t write the one on my blog!! Heavens, I’m not that creative. Deb, if you wrote this one, then I’m truly impressed, girl!! And that makes it even more imparative that I copy it!!

    Seriously, all this talk about the two Bibles has gotten me really thinking. In my read-the-Bible-in-one-year endeavor, I just today transitioned to the NT. I was reading all the history and multitude of information in my Bible, between the 2 Testaments. And I came away with some questions. Too tired tonight, so I will pose them tomorrow.

    It’s really fascinating to me.

    Again, this was so lovely! Jesus is indeed everywhere!

  7. Gayla says:

    OK, here’s me all embarrassed and everything.

    NOW I click on the link and see where you got it!

    Still beautiful!

  8. ukok says:

    Gayla, I’m glad you enjoyed it, I thought you would ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would have had to sit down for hours and hours to write a list that wouldn’t even come clkose to that standard….I’m pleased there was one already ‘out there’, of such a high standard!

    God bless.


    you can comment here, even if the point that you are making is contrary to my viewpoint ๐Ÿ™‚

    God Bless!

  9. Lorna says:

    oh it wasn’t contrary to your viewpoint lol

    it was just about the apocrypha – there were a lot of books that didn’t make it into the RC canon for a whole variety of reasons but reading them adds a lot of wealth to our knowledge about the period between the OT and Christ and also early church practices.

    it seems to be a trend in protestant Bibles (here in Europe anyway) to include the non-canonical books you mention. While protestants may not consider them scripture, they are very important so it was interesting to see them included here.

    What I do find interesting though is that the scripture readings for Sunday mass (RC) are confined to what we would consisder the Bible and readings that come from the ‘disputed’ books are relegated to weekdays… which suggests that even within the RC these books are considered less important (if that’s the right word).what’s your take on that?

    (I’m rapidly becoming addicted to your site – like Penni’s – it’s fascinating to discuss with you. I in no way want to challenge or debate with you – but dialogue and find out what God has shown you ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s lovely and truly a blessing to visit here.

  10. ukok says:


    I am greatly enjoying conversing with you in typeface and I hope that we get to know one another much better though interaction on both our blogs ๐Ÿ™‚

    You made a very interesting point about the Deuterocannononical readings at Sunday Mass, but they do occur and therefore are not relegated to a lesser place in the readings at Mass.

    For example in cycle A ~

    The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph/ Christmas Day ~ the first reading is from the book of Ecclesiasticus 3:2-6 12-14

    Second Sunday after Christmas ~ the first reading is from the book of Ecclesiasticus 24:1-2. 8-12

    6th Sunday in Ordinary time ~ the first reading is from Ecclesiasticus 15:15 -20

    Easter Vigil: The sixth reading is from the book of Baruch ~ 3:9-15. 32-44

    16th Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ the first reading from Wisdom ~ 12:13, 16-19

    24th Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ the first reading is from Ecclesiasticus ~ 27:30-28:7

    32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ the first reading is from Wisdom 6:12-16

    Using this as an example we can see that the deuterocanononical books have as much a place in the readings as any others. Noting particularly that the readings are read from them on Christmas Day and Easter Vigil.

    Hope this answers your question about their importance ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m encouraged by your viewpoint regarding the ‘apocryphal books’, and I completely agree…it’s such a shame that some people won’t even read them.

    God Bless you!
