Sententiae Patristicae in Lectionibus Dominicalibus

As part of my personal reflection on the Sunday readings for the coming liturgical year, I've decided to spend a bit of time each week looking at patristic commentary on and usage of these passages and then post some of what I find in hopes that it's useful to others. My primary tools/sources at this point are St. Thomas's Catena Aurea, the Ancient Christian Commentary Series and Logos Bible Software.

The Catena Aurea, at least in Newman's translation, can be somewhat scant with its citations. Since I imagine some of this could be due to mis-attribution, I will try to qualify such quotations accordingly when I can't determine the source. When I've used Logos, I'll provide a hyperlink to the passage, so that the context can be easily looked up.
