These readings are from The Church of England’s 1955 draft revision of the authorized Tables of Lessons 1922.  The 1922 lectionary was the first Anglican daily office lectionary to be organized around the Ecclesiastical year rather than the Calendar year, as is found in the original Book of Common Prayer. These newer daily office lectionaries are designed to fit better with and so enhance the doctrinal and thus salvific purposes of the traditional Western Eucharistic lectionary for Sundays and holy days.

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 Trinity VIII:  3 – 8 August 2020

O GOD, whose never-failing providence orders all things both in heaven and earth: We humbly beseech thee to put away from us all hurtful things, and to give us those things which be profitable for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
