Weekly Lectionary Readings and Commentary
Year B, 2018
(December 3, 2017 through November 25, 2018)
Clicking on a date will take you to the readings and commentary (if available) for that Sunday; if more than one are available, the Old Testament reading will appear first, with direct links to others.
This section is still being developed, so commentaries for all Sundays are not yet available. However, most Sundays have some material available. Sundays in Grey list the Lectionary readings for that Sunday, but do not have commentaries or other material available.
The Propers are readings for Ordinary Time following Epiphany and Pentecost, numbered to help establish a seven day range of dates on which they can occur. Propers numbering in the Revised Common Lectionary begins with the Sixth Sunday in Epiphany, excludes Sundays in Lent through Pentecost and Trinity Sunday, and resumes the Second Sunday after Pentecost (the first Sunday after Pentecost is Trinity Sunday), usually with Proper 4. Since the date of Easter is variable between March 22 and April 25, some Propers are not used in certain years, nor are all the Sundays of Epiphany. The Roman Catholic Lectionary and those based on it number the Propers differently.
Commentaries continue with Year C, Advent 1
The Church Year begins with Advent in November/December.
