* "First" OT readings, read semi-continuously, follow major stories/themes, beginning in Year A with Genesis and ending in Year C with the later prophets. Italicized readings may be used with, or in place of it. * "Alternate First" OT readings follow the complementary historical tradition of thematically pairing the OT reading with the Gospel reading. Italicized readings may be used with, or in place of it.
** In a very few instances in the Lectionary, no Psalm reading is offered for reasons relating to the thematic nature of the Day.
