Weekly and daily readings

Readings from scripture are part of every Mass. At least two readings, one always from the Gospels, (three on Sundays and solemnities) make up the Liturgy of the Word. In addition, a psalm or canticle is sung. These readings are typically read from a lectionary, not a Bible, though the lectionary is taken from the Bible.
The 2017 liturgical year Sunday readings are taken from Sunday cycle Year A. The daily readings are taken from weekday cycle Year I.

This Sunday, we celebrate the 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
