These readings are from The Revised Tables of Lessons 1922.

It leads us each year through most of the Old Testament once and the whole New Testament twice.  The readings are longer than you might be used to, but just let them wash over you and shape your soul like a rock in a river that is gradually shaped by the current.  If you miss a bit, just pick up on the present day’s readings when you return.  Or if it is too much, chose just the Old Testament or Gospel or Epistle readings.  The grey highlighted boxes are special readings related to a particular Feast day which we begin to celebrate the night before.

The Week of Easter V – May 18 to 23

O LORD, from whom all good things do come: Grant to us your humble servants, that by your holy inspiration we may think those things that be good, and by your merciful guiding may perform the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.
