Those listed for Sundays and Festivals are drawn from the Table of Readings in the Book of Common Prayer (the listings for a Third Service are not included). Copyright approval has been given to reproduce these. Those for weekdays are from tables approved by the House of Bishops in 2004 and 2005.
Those for the Principal Service are printed in full in The Word of The Lord (Canterbury Press 2003)
The ‡ prefaced to Gospel readings in the Second Service listing is a provision to be used if that service is a celebration of Holy Communion.
Psalter provision is given for Morning (M) and Evening (E). During seasons a selection of psalms appropriate to the season is arranged. In ordinary time psalms are for the most part read in course. The final cycle of the year omits some psalms well–used during the seasons.
An optional provision indicated by [B] is the provision in the Consultation for Common Texts Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings: normally the same psalm for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday preceding Sunday and another for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday following.
Listing A is from the two–year programme which covers almost the whole Bible in semi–continuous reading over the two years. This may be used at either the Morning or Evening office. In this year the New Testament readings are mostly from the gospels. In the alternate year they are mostly from the rest of the New Testament. In this way the whole of the New
Testament is read over two years. The greater part of the Old Testament is also covered over the two years
Listing B is from Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings drawn up by the compilers of the Revised Common Lectionary and published in 2005. Readings for Thursday, Friday and
Saturday help to prepare for the coming Sunday; those for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday reflect upon it. Where MP and EP are celebrated this may be used either in the morning or
evening. Because of its link with the Sunday readings of the three year cycle, when only one office is celebrated this may be used where an irregular congregation might find the A table less than helpful. This listing is from Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings, © 2005 Consultation on Common Texts and is used with permission.
The readings cited under HC are now published printed out by Canterbury Press as The Common Worship Daily Eucharistic Lectionary (2008).
Daily Single Reading
In the listing for Holy Communion (HC) use of either of the readings is a simple provision for people requiring one reading for the day. The psalm may also be used.
