Blessed Advent. Looking forward to next reflection.
Hopefully I will get the one for tomorrow posted sooner in the day.
The Scriptures read as Sunday Mass are not arbitrarily chosen by the pastor or parishioners. The Church has a three-year cycle of set readings.
In this cycle, Year A centers on Matthews Gospel, Year B on Mark, and Year C on Luke. (Passages from John are interspersed in the sequence of Gospels every year.
The weekday Gospels, however, are usually the same every year. Since there are many more weekdays than Sundays, they cover a greater part of all four Gospels.
Generally speaking the weekday Gospels use passages that are never read on Sundays.
This year, these readings will use the Gospel passages assigned for the weekday Masses. This will give many people a chance to reflect on and pray passages of the Gospels that they have seldom heard proclaimed or preached about during the Liturgy of the Word.
