Lectionary
« on: February 05, 2011, 08:15:36 PM »
Does anyone know where I could get a copy of the readings for the Divine Liturgy throughout the year that is listed by date?

I have the Orthodox Study Bible but you need to know what week (First Week after Pentecost and such) you are in to follow it.  This can get confusing and I am having some memory issues with my illness.

I usually get the wall calendar from my parish which has the readings listed on it but I have not been able to make it to my parish yet this year due to Carmelite functions I had to attend during January and due to issues with my illness.

Part of my prayer is to read the Daily Readings for the Liturgy and I want to do this from within my tradition rather than the Roman Readings (which I get at Morning Prayer/Mass anyways).

I would appreciate any help that can be given.  I have found a website from a Russian Orthodox parish that lists the daily readings but I would like something that I could print out and keep with my Bible so that I do not have to have an internet connection to find it.

Even though I am a technophile I was looking for something non-technologically based.

I actually felt well enough to make it out to my parish this Sunday and found a copy of "Through the Year With the Church Fathers" from Light and Life Publishing at our parish book store. The book does not contain the lectionary but it does have an Epistle and a Gospel Reading for each day of the year along with a meditation, a writing from one of the Church Fathers and then a closing prayer. I am going to use this for my daily Scripture reading and then, as it seems to be a bit shorter than I had planned, I will follow that up with some spiritual reading.

Thanks for the help though.

There may be differences between the prescribed lectionary used by the Greeks and that of the Slavs. I would suggest that you check this out from the Orthodox Carpatho-Russian webpage which generally would be similar to that used by the Ruthenian Greek Catholics (with the possible exception of a few western Saints included in the Eastern Catholic calendar):  http://www.acrod.org/prayercorner/todaysreadings  You can get directed there daily from the main page acrod.com and look for the new calendar link on the home page, or use the today's readings page with a choice of dates found on the bottom. Again, you are offered old and new calendar dates.

You had asked for something that you could print out, if you click on the month at the website I linked and click on "Index" you can print out all the readings for the month.
