I think it's great that someone is trying to use the lectionary as a Scripture study tool. However, it looks to me like every single secondary source included here is a protestant source. Not right, imho.

After the Roman Catholic liturgical changes post-Vatican II, a number of Protestant churches, especially the more "liturgical" ones, also adopted a three-year Lectionary cycle, quite similar to the RC one. Even a Baptist church here in Roslindale uses a Lectionary! One difference was that usually there were alternate options to replace readings from the deuterocanonical books.

In addition to the individual denominations' versions, there was also a so-called COMMON LECTIONARY put out by the CCT (Consultation on Common Texts) and even a REVISED COMMON LECTIONARY, based on a number of years of experience.

The pastor of my church and one of the pastoral associates meets regularly (almost weekly) with a few Protestant ministers who are using a Lectionary to discuss the readings, especially the Gospel reading which is usually the most common, often identical.

Exactly, when I converted from PCUSA. There was no difference in this area as well as other things, mainly Ash Wed, lent all that is the same. I think you'd be ok following any of those from the higher liturgical churches if you found one you like.

What would be wrong with having Protestant sources btw? is it a Protestant site? It wouldn't be right if it was Catholic. I'm not sure I understand the problem :?

It wouldn't be right if it was Catholic? Could you explain here unity.

Well, I was just saying that if it was a Catholic website with Protestant lectionary calendars, that would be odd. I'm not sure I understand why it would be a problem having Protestant sources if it was a Protestant site. But then if it's the same lectionary all the higher churches use,then what problem would that be? I guess I don't get the first two posts. I feel I'm missing something. It doesn't take much :roll:

It is not an exclusively Catholic website.

Professional resources for preachers, teachers, and writers who need comprehensive, tightly organized materials. Primarily Christian and educational, growing across all fields of knowledge.


The "Common" and Episcopal collumns would be the first clue concerning the scope of the website.

The Protestant commentaries listed are available all over the net since they are no longer copyright protected. Unfortunately as far as I know, no Catholic equivilent exists, at least not in English.
