Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings
The Revised Common Lectionary is a three-year cycle of readings appointed for use in worship and in the home. We are currently in Year A, the year in which our gospel readings on Sundays come largely from the Gospel of Matthew. Year B begins this Thursday, November 26, with the gospel readings generally coming from Mark or John. The daily readings for Monday through Wednesday reflect on the previous Sunday’s lessons, while the readings for Thursday through Saturday look forward to the coming Sunday’s lessons. Lesser festivals, commemorations, and other occasions may also have their own appointed readings, which are listed below when applicable. Please find the daily readings below:
