I'm thinking this has been asked and answered before but I am unable to find anything ...

Can someone point me to a handy table of a comparison of the readings (Sunday and Weekday) between the Catholic Mass Lectionary and the current Revised Common Lectionary?

http://www.textweek.com/yeara/yeara.htm http://www.textweek.com/yearb/yearb.htm http://www.textweek.com/yearc/yearc.htm for Sundays. The weekday readings have no relationship to each other as the principles of selection are different - Catholic is semi-continuous reading of books; RCL is correlated to the Sunday readings.

Thanks for the links.  To make sure I'm understanding the tables, for Advent A the Catholic Mass Lectionary readings are identical to the RCL readings?  Is that correct?

Advent A

First Sunday of Advent Sunday between November 27 and December 3 Isaiah 2:1-5 Psalm 122 Romans 13:11-14 Matthew 24:36-44
Second Sunday of Advent Sunday between December 4 and December 10 Isaiah 11:1-10 Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19 Romans 15:4-13 Matthew 3:1-12
Third Sunday of Advent Sunday between December 11 and December 17 Isaiah 35:1-10 Psalm 146:5-10 James 5:7-10 Matthew 11:2-11
Luke 1:47-55
Fourth Sunday of Advent Sunday between December 18 and December 24 Isaiah 7:10-16 Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19 Romans 1:1-7 Matthew 1:18-25

Yes although there may be slight differences in editing

and the Psalm for Advent 3A has an option in the RCL while the Catholic usage is set

I see.  I need to click through on a specific week to see differences, if any.  Correct?

I am looking through the web to see if someone has curated a comparative chart of all of the available lectionaries: (RCL, Open Source, Year D, African American, etc.)

I've not seen an attempt to do this and in many ways it is not possible to do so outside of comparison within a family of lectionaries. The Text This Week compares the major RCL based version - but omits some interesting Mennonite variations.

I'm not aware of a chart that even manages to compare all of the presently-used Catholic lectionaries, even ignoring regional versions, never mind comparisons of everything that's out there.
