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 C, the year in which our gospel readings on Sundays come largely from the Gospel of Luke. 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.
