Please obtain the necessary permissions to make Rojas' 1, 2 and 3 year reading plans for the Catholic Bible predefined reading plans in Verbum. It is "a disgrace" for Verbum to reflect only the Protestant canon in its reading plans.

" The three-year plan involves only 5-7 minutes a day of reading the Bible. Two-year and one-year reading plans give the more ambitious reader the opportunity to read Scripture 10-15 or 20-30 minutes a day. "

Question: do the plans read straight through cover to cover or are they plans that skip around?

One comment is that "the two-year plan follows the daily readings of the liturgy."  [implies that it does not read straight through]

Actually the weekday lectionary is generally built around continuous readings of scripture. I'm unsure where my copy of this is but I think that it splits morning OT and evening NT but I don't recall the sequence of the books.

It looks like Rojas' guide is published by Franciscan Media. 

Are there other books of theirs that interest you? https://shop.franciscanmedia.org/

Richard Rohr is consistently requested in Logos as well as Verbum.- all the titles by him are worth condieration

Prayer in the Catholic Tradition would fit the Verbum market well I would think

I'm not familiar with Francis the Journey and the Dream but Murray Bodo is an author I'd always purchase so you could pick up his other works as well.

Now I should admit my taste leans towards Dominicans rather than Franciscans so you probably want an alternative voice closer to the Franciscans.
