Roman Catholic Bible commentaries

There doesn't seem to be an overabundance of free biblical commentaries online from a Roman Catholic perspective. One exception can be found in the Most Theological Library, an online collection of writings by the late Roman Catholic priest, William G. Most. You can download a single .zip file (451 KB) with thirteen of Dr. Most's commentaries (including Wisdom and Sirach) in .txt format here.

Other resources from a Roman Catholic perspective are the writings of Don Schwager, whose website includes devotional commentaries on each of the four Gospels, Hebrews, and Exodus.

Even if, like me, you disagree with wide swaths of Roman Catholic doctrine, these commentaries are at least illustrative and at times insightful.

As always, if you're looking for links to the best online Bible commentaries, please remember Expository Links.

Thanks for your website. Raised Catholic, I have a hard time trying to get answers to questions about Catholic teachings. It seems that almost everything requires money. As an old retired military vet living on a fixed income I always end up having to pass up on any help.
Unlike most Protestant we bites where there so much free information to questions, My Catholic apologists seem to help you out as long as you send them money.

Anyway,God bless you and thanks.

Do you know of any resources that explain the Catholic belief on Galatians 5:6, particularly Paul's statement on "faith working through love" which he is saying is all that counts to God.

I love this post. As a Master's student of theology I am befuddled why so little of the work of Catholic scholars are made available to us. Those who say "commentary in one hand, Catechism in the other" fail to remember not only Verbum Dei, but also that God calls us to come to faith through him, not through official teaching. Thanks again.

Mr. Jahanshir, I'm afraid I don't. Sorry to take so long to reply and still not know how to answer your question. But thanks for visiting.

For Mr. Jahanshir:

Galatians 5:6

Ver. 5-6. We in spirit hope for true justice by faith in Christ; yet not by faith only, but by faith working by charity. (Witham) --- Here note with St. Augustine, that faith is not to be idle, but working or doing good works in charity: wherefore not faith alone. (De opere et fide. chap. xiv.)

This is found here from another Roman Catholic commentary:
