Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about this Site

Where can I find the daily readings in Spanish?

The daily readings in Spanish can be found at our Lecturas del Día page.

Are audio podcasts of the Spanish daily readings available?

We currently await final approval of a U.S. Leccionario by the Holy See. When approval is given, we intend to prepare podcasts of the Spanish readings.

Is a Spanish Bible available on the website?

Not at this time. We are working to secure copyright permissions for a Spanish Bible, so that we can offer this resource in the future.

Is there an audio version of the NABRE on the website?

The NABRE is available in text format only.

Where can I find an explanation of a particular Bible passage or verse?

A good place to start is to view the footnotes in the NABRE, which are found at the end of each chapter. They are linked at the asterisks (*) found in the NABRE text. For more in-depth explanations and discussions of Biblical texts, you might wish to consult an approved Bible commentary.

The priest at my parish read a different reading than the one posted. Did he read the wrong reading?

This site posts only the reading listed in the official Liturgical Calendar for the United States. However, the priest celebrating a Mass may have many other choices for readings, including the readings for a saint's feast day, a Mass in honor of the Blessed Virgin, or a votive Mass.

Do you have readings posted for memorials of saints?

We do not currently have the readings for memorials of saints posted but we hope to introduce them on the readings page as staffing allows.

Can you provide the entrance and communion antiphons on the Daily Readings page?

Due to the wide variety of options provided in the Roman Missal, and also due to copyright restrictions, we do not provide the antiphons of the Mass on the daily readings page.

I really loved one of the readings from three months ago. How do I find out what it was? OR I need to know the readings for a month after what you have posted, how do I find it?

The citations for the readings Liturgical Calendar for the United States. You can use the citations to look up the text in a Bible, missal, or Lectionary. The calendar for the upcoming year is usually posted in the autumn.
