The weekday readings at Mass follow a two-year cycle, covering the seasons of Advent, Christmastide, Lent and Eastertide and the Ordinary Times of the year.

The first reading is from either the Old Testament or the non-Gospel material of the New Testament. After the psalm follows the Gospel passage.

These extracts from the scriptures which feed our minds and hearts are the Word of God from both the Jewish and Christian traditions. No other words can match their wisdom and authority which come, through the sacred writers, from God himself. Here we can feast on what is most truly true.
