If you see a reference to (2 Mc 7:1, 20-31) tomorrow's Old Testament reading how are you supposed to pronounce that? And what if it spans two different chapters?
In Catechism class, sometimes I need to ask kids to look stuff up referenced like that and I don't know how to succinctly say it to them. Other times they need to say the reference while reading something in the textbook and they always skip it because they don't know how to say it.
What I want is a pronunciation guide to go with the style guide for referencing bible passages that the publishers of the Faith life Series would expect me to teach the kids, so we can read their books.
