Traditional Bible Commentaries and Bibles with good footnotes
#1
Does anyone have any recommendations on Pre-Vatican II bibles with good footnotes or any Bible Commentaries? I'm looking for something simple but also relies on the Church fathers or Saints. I've seen the Orthodox Study Bible and its footnotes (which seem good in my opinion) but I was wondering if there was any Catholic equivalent.

Haydock's Bible Commentary

"There are in truth three states of the converted: the beginning,  the middle and the perfection. In the beginning, they experience the charms of sweetness; in the middle, the contests of temptation; and in the end, the fullness of perfection."
-- Pope St. Gregory

“One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, Our Lady will save the world.”
-- attributed to Saint Domenic

Echo,
if you have either an IOS or Android phone/tablet, pick up iPieta, which has the Douay-Rheims Bible, Hydock Bible (D-R plus commentaries), et cetera, for,IIRC, 2.99. They also have a free version (not as in having ads or extremely limited function), called iVerbum. You can find them here: iPieta.

Haydock Commentary as others have said:

The other would be St. Thomas' commentaries:

Anything more recent but still doctrinally sound?
