What do you mean by "parallel readings"?
I'm counting the First Reading, Psalms, Second Reading, and Gospel for Sundays in these Stats...

("That they may be one...Father")
Here's an example of parallel readings with these reflections on the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary.
The Luminous Mysteries or Mysteries of Light
(Thursdays) see Rosarium Virginis Mariae
1. Jesus' Baptism in the Jordan (II Corinthians 5:21, Matthew 3:17 and parallels) [Spiritual fruit - Gratitude for the gift of Faith]
2. Jesus' self-manifestation at the wedding of Cana (John 2:1- 12) [Spiritual fruit - Fidelity]
3. Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom of God, with His call to conversion (Mark 1:15, Mark 2:3-13; Luke 7:47- 48, John 20:22-23) [Spiritual fruit - Desire for Holiness]
4. Jesus' Transfiguration (Luke 9:35 and parallels) [Spiritual fruit - Spiritual Courage]
5. Jesus' institution of the Eucharist, as the sacramental expression of the Paschal Mystery. (Luke 24:13-35 and parallels, 1 Corinthians 11:24-25) [Spiritual fruit - Love of our Eucharistic Lord]

("With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26)
Readings where the same passage occurs in more than one book. Almost every verse of Mark, for instance, also appears in Matthew or Luke. Paul repeats certain teachings in more than one of his letters. And various passages of the Torah appear in more than one book. (The Ten Commandments, for instance, appear three times, in Exodus, Leviticus and Dueteronomy.)
