April 2018

The Bible, distributed according to the weekday lectionary of Bose, is read almost in its entirety: the New Testament (Gospel and Epistle) in its entirety in the course of one year, and the Old Testament in a cycle of three years.

The Sunday lectionary is that of the Catholic Church. Nevertheless, we have wanted to suggest some further texts, which we always write in italics and mark with an asterisk, to provide Old Testament parallels that fit the Gospel better and to include also the second reading (Epistle) in the parallel lectio.

The Saints' day lectionary has been arranged mostly by us.
