The Catholic Lectionary contains the readings used at Mass for Sundays, feasts and weekdays of the liturgical year.
Created to fulfill the desire of the Second Vatican Council to open up the treasures of the Bible more lavishly in the liturgy, its three-year cycle of readings is followed by Catholic churches around the world and also formed the basis for the Revised Common Lectionary used by many Protestant Christians.
Organized by calendar date, the Logos Catholic Lectionary allows you to easily find the readings of the week and study them in your preferred translation.
Using Lectionary Resources in Logos Bible Software
The readings are arranged by calendar date and the book automatically opens at the next set of readings. For each Sunday or feast, the title, the season and the liturgical color is given. The text of the readings for the day is displayed in the translation you specify at the top of the panel, and links are provided that you can use to open your Bible or right-click to quickly open up Logos guides, tools and searches for deeper study and sermon preparation.
For more general study, you can also find a complete listing of readings organized by liturgical event (i.e. more like a print lectionary that you can re-use year to year) in the “Index of Readings” found at the end of the lectionary.
