Catholic Daily Mass Readings
Catholic Daily Mass Readings are readings arranged for daily Liturgical celebrations. Though, they are all taken from the Holy Bible. Catholic Daily Readings are arranged in these order:
- First Reading
- Responsorial Psalm
- Second Reading
- Gospel Acclamation
- Gospel Readings
This is the First reading take during every liturgical celebration. In most cases, it is take from the Old Testament. Most often it has related message with the Gospel Reading.
As its name implies, it is often take from the Book of Psalms. In most cases, especially on Sundays, Responsorial Psalms are song with marvelous and mild tone. Responsorial Psalms are often take by choristers.
This comes immediately after the Responsorial Psalm. Though, the Second Reading is not taken in every Mass, it is often taken in Sunday Masses and other Masses like Burial Mass. This Reading is often taken from the New Testament to point to the New Testament version of what we heard in the First Reading (Old Testament).
This comes immediately after the Second Reading while the Congregation stand to welcome the Gospel. Acclamation is begun with “Alleluia Alleluia”, but during Lent, we take “Glory and Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ”. After singing this, one of the Reader will read a small verse of the Bible allotted as acclamation for the day. However, Gospel Acclamation is just as eye-opener to welcome the Gospel.
Gospel is taken by a Deacon or a a priest. It is take from one of the Gospel authors – Matthew, Mark, Luke or John.
