Sunday and Red-Letter Day Lectionary

Sunday and Red Letter Day Lectionary (ACNA Texts for Common Prayer)

General Instructions

 The public reading of Scripture in the liturgies of the Church is among the most important features of any act of worship. No one should be admitted to this high privilege who has not thoroughly prepared the passage to be read, so that the lesson can be read with clarity, authority and understanding.

This lectionary provides a three-year cycle of four readings for each Sunday of the Christian Year, as well as lessons for Principal Observances: Christmas Day, the Epiphany, the Presentation, Ash Wednesday, the weekdays of Holy Week and Easter Week, Ascension Day and All Saints Day.   Year A begins with Advent Sunday in those years evenly divisible by 3.

Also included in this lectionary is a single set of eucharistic readings for Prayer Book Customary Observances (“red-letter days.”)
The number of readings on any Sunday or Holy Day may be lessened according to pastoral circumstance, provided the gospel is always read at Eucharist. The English Standard Version of the Scriptures is the normative text; however, the Psalms should be read or sung in a version intended for that purpose. The Bishop of the Diocese is to be consulted where a regular pattern of fewer than four lessons is adopted as the Sunday customary of a congregation, or when a pattern of alternate readings (a “sermon series”) is proposed.  The rector of a congregation may direct that an appointed lesson be shortened or lengthened, provided the plain sense is retained.

Feasts of Dedication, special observances customary in the local setting, or days of national or provincial mourning or celebration may employ lessons other than those regularly appointed for that Sunday.
