* "First" OT readings follow major stories/themes, read mostly continuously, beginning in Year A with Genesis and ending in Year C with the later prophets. Italicized readings, complementary to the standard reading, may be used with, or in place of it. * "Alternate First" OT readings follow the historical tradition of thematically pairing the OT reading with the Gospel reading. Italicized readings, complementary to the standard reading, 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.
