On Sundays and major holy days, do you want to use the standard Daily Office readings or substitue the 3-year Sunday/Holy Day cycle?

Open with the Venite (Psalm 95) always (traditional), have a special celebratory invitatory on Sundays and feasts (Pascha Nostrum during Eastertide or Jubilate/Psalm 100 otherwise), or rotate between the normal and celebratory invitatory each day. Regardless of which setting you choose, the Pascha Nostrum is always used during the first week of Easter, and the invitatory will never be the same as one of the day's appointed psalms.

COLOSSIANS 3:1

Confession of Sin

The Officiant says to the People

Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.

Dearly beloved, the Scriptures teach us to acknowledge our many sins and offenses, not concealing them from our heavenly Father, but confessing them with humble and obedient hearts that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy. We ought at all times humbly to acknowledge our sins before Almighty God, but especially when we come together in his presence to give thanks for the great benefits we have received at his hands, to declare his most worthy praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things which are necessary for our life and our salvation. Therefore, draw near with me to the throne of heavenly grace.

Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.

Silence is kept. All kneeling, the Officiant and People say

Almighty and most merciful Father,

we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires

of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done,

and we have done those things which we ought not

to have done;

and apart from your grace, there is no health in us.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare all those who confess their faults.

Restore all those who are penitent, according to your promises

declared to all people in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,

that we may now live a godly, righteous, and sober life,

to the glory of your holy Name. Amen.

A Deacon or layperson remains kneeling and prays

Grant to your faithful people, merciful Lord, pardon and peace; that we may be cleansed from all our sins, and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

The Priest alone stands and says

The Almighty and merciful Lord grant you absolution and remission of all your sins, true repentance, amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of his Holy Spirit.Amen.

Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, desires not the death of sinners, but that they may turn from their wickedness and live. He has empowered and commanded his ministers to pronounce to his people, being penitent, the absolution and remission of their sins. He pardons and absolves all who truly repent and genuinely believe his holy Gospel. For this reason, we beseech him to grant us true repentance and his Holy Spirit, that our present deeds may please him, the rest of our lives may be pure and holy, and that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Almighty and merciful Lord grant you absolution and remission of all your sins, true repentance, amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of his Holy Spirit.Amen.

People As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Officiant Praise the Lord.

60 Day Cycle

Psalm 89:1-18

Misericordias Domini

1 My song shall be always of the loving-kindness of the Lord;*

with my mouth will I ever be proclaiming your faithfulness, from one generation to another.

2 For I have said, "Mercy shall be built up for ever;*

your faithfulness shall be established in the heavens."

3 I have made a covenant with my chosen one;*

I have sworn to David my servant:

4 "Your seed will I establish for ever,*

and set up your throne from one generation to another."

5 O Lord, the heavens will praise your wondrous works*

and your faithfulness in the assembly of the saints.

6 For who in the clouds can be compared unto the Lord?*

And who among the gods is like unto the Lord?

7 God is greatly to be feared in the council of the saints,*

and to be held in reverence by all those who are round about him.

8 O Lord God of hosts, who is like you?*

Your faithfulness, most mighty Lord, is round about you.

9 You rule the raging of the sea;*

you still the waves when they arise.

10 You have subdued Rahab of the deep, and destroyed her;*

you have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours;*

you laid the foundation of the world, and all that is in it.

12 You have made the north and the south;*

Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in your Name.

13 You have a mighty arm;*

strong is your hand, and high is your right hand.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;*

mercy and truth shall go before your face.

15 Blessed are the people, O Lord, who rejoice in you;*

they shall walk in the light of your countenance.

16 Their delight shall be in your Name all the day long,*

and in your righteousness shall they make their boast.

17 For you are the glory of their strength,*

and by your favor you shall lift up our might.

18 For the Lord is our defense;*

the Holy One of Israel is our King.

The Psalms Appointed

30 Day Cycle

Psalm 35

Judica, Domine

1 Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me,*

and fight against those who fight against me.

2 Take up the shield and buckler,*

and stand up to help me.

3 Bring forth the spear and bar the way against those who pursue me;*

say to my soul, "I am your salvation."

4 Let them be confounded and put to shame who seek after my life;*

let them be turned back and brought to confusion who imagine evil against me.

5 Let them be as the chaff before the wind,*

and let the angel of the Lord scatter them.

6 Let their way be dark and slippery,*

and let the angel of the Lord pursue them.

7 For they have secretly laid their net to destroy me without a cause;*

indeed, without a cause have they made a pit to take away my life.

8 Let sudden destruction come upon them unawares, and the net, which they have laid secretly, catch themselves,*

that they may fall into their own trouble.

9 Then shall my soul be joyful in the Lord;*

I shall rejoice in his salvation.

10 All my bones shall say, "Lord, who is like you? You deliver the poor from those who are too strong for them;*

indeed, the poor and those who are in misery from those who rob them."

11 Malicious witnesses rise up;*

they charge me with matters I know nothing about.

12 They repay me evil for good,*

to the great sorrow of my soul.

13 Nevertheless, when they were sick, I put on sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting;*

I prayed with my whole heart, as if it had been my friend or my brother.

14 I behaved myself as one who mourns for his mother;*

I was bowed down with heaviness of heart.

15 But in my adversity, they rejoiced and gathered themselves together;*

indeed, those who struck me came together against me, and I had no rest; they tore at me, and would not cease.

16 When I stumbled they mocked me exceedingly,*

and gnashed at me with their teeth.

17 Lord, how long will you look on this?*

O deliver me from the calamities they bring upon me, and my life from the lions.

18 So will I give you thanks in the great congregation;*

I will praise you among many people.

19 O let not those who are my enemies triumph over me deceitfully;*

neither let them wink with their eyes, those who hate me without a cause.

20 For their talking is not for peace,*

but they imagine deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land.

21 They open their mouths at me, and say,*

"Aha! Aha! We saw it with our own eyes!"

22 This you have seen, O Lord.*

Hold not your tongue then; be not far from me, O Lord.

23 Awake, and stand up to judge my case;*

avenge my cause, my God and my Lord.

24 Judge me, O Lord my God, according to your righteousness,*

and let them not triumph over me.

25 Let them not say in their hearts, "Aha! We have what we want!"*

Neither let them say, "We have devoured him."

26 Let them be put to confusion and shame who rejoice at my trouble;*

let them be clothed with shame and dishonor who boast against me.

27 Let them be glad and rejoice who favor my righteous cause;*

indeed, let them say always, "Great is the Lord, who takes pleasure in the prosperity of his servant."

28 And as for my tongue, it shall be talking of your righteousness*

and of your praise all the day long.

Psalm 36

Dixit injustus

1 My heart shows me the wickedness of the ungodly;*

there is no fear of God before his eyes.

2 For he flatters himself in his own sight,*

until his abominable sin is found out.

3 The words of his mouth are unrighteous and full of deceit;*

he has left off behaving wisely and doing good.

4 He imagines mischief upon his bed, and has set himself in no good way;*

neither does he abhor anything that is evil.

5 Your mercy, O Lord, reaches to the heavens,*

and your faithfulness to the clouds.

6 Your righteousness stands like the strong mountains; your judgments are like the great deep;*

you, Lord, shall save both man and beast.

7 How excellent is your mercy, O God!*

The children of men shall take refuge under the shadow of your wings.

8 They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of your house,*

and you shall give them drink from your pleasures as out of a river.

9 For with you is the well of life,*

and in your light shall we see light.

10 O continue your loving-kindness to those who know you,*

and your righteousness to those who are true of heart.

11 O let not the foot of the proud come against me,*

and let not the hand of the ungodly cast me down.

12 There have they fallen, all those who work wickedness;*

they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.

O children of Jacob his chosen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

The First Lesson

Leviticus 17

The lesson is read, the people sitting

Reader A reading from the Book of Leviticus, beginning with the seventeenth chapter, the first verse

The Place of Sacrifice

17 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Aaron and his sons and to all the people of Israel and say to them, This is the thing that the Lord has commanded. If any one of the house of Israel kills an ox or a lamb or a goat in the camp, or kills it outside the camp, and does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting to offer it as a gift to the Lord in front of the tabernacle of the Lord, bloodguilt shall be imputed to that man. He has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people. This is to the end that the people of Israel may bring their sacrifices that they sacrifice in the open field, that they may bring them to the Lord, to the priest at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and sacrifice them as sacrifices of peace offerings to the Lord. And the priest shall throw the blood on the altar of the Lord at the entrance of the tent of meeting and burn the fat for a pleasing aroma to the Lord. So they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices to goat demons, after whom they whore. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations.

“And you shall say to them, Any one of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who offers a burnt offering or sacrifice and does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting to offer it to the Lord, that man shall be cut off from his people.

Laws Against Eating Blood

10 “If any one of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them eats any blood, I will set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from among his people. 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life. 12 Therefore I have said to the people of Israel, No person among you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood.

13 “Any one also of the people of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten shall pour out its blood and cover it with earth. 14 For the life of every creature is its blood: its blood is its life. Therefore I have said to the people of Israel, You shall not eat the blood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off. 15 And every person who eats what dies of itself or what is torn by beasts, whether he is a native or a sojourner, shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until the evening; then he shall be clean. 16 But if he does not wash them or bathe his flesh, he shall bear his iniquity.”

Acts 3:1-10

The lesson is read, the people sitting

Reader A reading from the Acts of the Apostles, beginning with the third chapter, the first verse

The Lame Beggar Healed

Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

Reader A reading from the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Mark, beginning with the fifth chapter, the twenty-first verse

Jesus Heals a Woman and Jairus's Daughter

21 And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea. 22 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet 23 and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” 24 And he went with him.

And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25 And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, 26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” 29 And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’ 32 And he looked around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth. 34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”

35 While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler's house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36 But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” 37 And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38 They came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and Jesus saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. 39 And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.” 40 And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was. 41 Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” 42 And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 43 And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

The Third Lesson

Luke 24:13-35

The lesson is read, the people sitting

Reader A reading from the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Luke, beginning with the twenty-fourth chapter, the thirteenth verse

On the Road to Emmaus

13 That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, 14 and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. 15 While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. 17 And he said to them, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad. 18 Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?” 19 And he said to them, “What things?” And they said to him, “Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how our chief priests and rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 21 But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things happened. 22 Moreover, some women of our company amazed us. They were at the tomb early in the morning, 23 and when they did not find his body, they came back saying that they had even seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. 24 Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see.” 25 And he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

28 So they drew near to the village to which they were going. He acted as if he were going farther, 29 but they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is now far spent.” So he went in to stay with them. 30 When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight. 32 They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” 33 And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, 34 saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” 35 Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread.
