The Lectionary for Mass: For Use in the Dioceses of the United States of America, 2nd ed., vols. 1–4 is scheduled to ship later this month.  Still time to order at a savings over the regular price.  This is a welcome addition to Verbum for those that prepare for Mass using the Liturgical Layout.  Here is some discussion on another thread with a helpful explanation from Louis:

The product page still has a link to the Liturgy of the Hours. (Faithlife, have you ever considered using a broken-link-checking service/software?)

The Lectionary ships with a second resource Catholic Daily Readings (U.S. Lectionary), which is a dynamic text, day-by-day, lectionary resource like the current dynamic text "Catholic Lectionary." You can add this resource to your homepage in place of Catholic Lectionary to view the daily readings in the official translation.

The screenshots below show the liturgical layout opened from the homepage using the dynamic text Catholic Daily Readings (U.S. Lectionary) (note dynamic text taken from the official translation, and the full Lectionary for Mass opened in the third tab behind it), and dynamic text resource and full lectionary side-by-side.

Also, when I update the Catholic Lectionary, I will be adding the link to Lectionary for Mass there as well, so that, even if you prefer to keep using another translation, the official text is easily available and opens behind the Missal. (I'll be adding more more years to it, and making some other corrections and updates as well.)

Thanks Louis ... now go enjoy a cup of iced coffee in the first day of summer sun (okay I exaggerate slightly).

Good to know! I am excited to finally get the Lectionary, and I am even more excited to see how it will be integrated.

So glad we now have the official lectionary.  When I prioritized it above "The Catholic Lectionary", I was expecting it to be used for the daily readings on the Home Page, but instead, the "Catholic Lectionary" remains as the one used.  Is anyone else having this issue?  Am I doing something incorrect?

You need a Ordo to mediate between the generic liturgical calendar and the actual secular date. All I would expect is for the current lectionary/ordo to add an option to draw the passage from the Lectionary rather than from a Bible. That will require a software change.

Thanks for the response. I guess I assumed this would be part of it/it would be designed to work with the Lectionary system on the home page.  That's what u get for assuming!  Thanks for the clarification though!

This is the purpose of the resource Catholic Daily Readings (U.S. Lectionary), which was included with the Lectionary for Mass. It's what mediates between the Lectionary for Mass and the secular date. (It is effectively an ordo that also brings in the dynamic text.)

You'll want to prioritize this resource above Catholic Lectionary. (Or go into the "Customize" menu on the homepage and check it instead of Catholic Lectionary.)

It will look pretty much the same as the Catholic Lectionary on your sidebar, but it will open displaying the official text, as I showed in the screenshot above.

Yes, that worked ... I had to close the current lectionary to get the menu to refresh to show the new lectionary as a possibility ... there may be a more obvious way to get the menu refreshed ...

Hmmm ... I'm lost (again) ...

I prioritized the Catholic Daily Readings above the Catholic Lectionary and it didn't seem to change anything for me.  So I removed the Catholic Lectionary from the priority list and I'm still getting the old view when I click the liturgical date on the home screen.  I also restarted Verbum to see if that made a difference.  No change.  Screen shots below.

Steve, there is also an addition to the Home Page Panel entries that you have to change to - if you click the gear in the top right corner, you probably see "Catholic Lectionary" checked, and at the bottom of the left column there is a new entry, Catholic Daily Readings (US Lectionary). Check that one and uncheck the other. For me the new one was ALSO checked, I had two in the left column of my Home Page - you may too and you just clicked the old one (the new one might already be checked and at the bottom).

Let me know if that makes sense/fixes it, if not I'll add some pictures to describe what I am trying to explain!

Sorry for the confusion. The homepage sidebar lectionary display was formerly controlled solely by prioritization, but since Verbum/Logos 6, it is controlled through the Customize menu. You may not have noticed if you haven't had reason to change your lectionary since then. (Prioritization should still control what results from the Go box.)

Thanks, I came here to figure out how to get things switched around on my home screen. Yes  Very glad to have this resource!

That's it.  Smile  Thanks Don and Louis.  Another question ...

Is there a way to move the liturgical day information up to the top in the side bar (where it is with the original Catholic Lectionary selected)?

Yes there is - from the same drop down on the right side where all the sections are listed to be checked or not, just click and drag them in any order you like!

That was easy!  Smile

I guess I never had the occasion to want to change things until now.

Hmm...I thought I had it.  The homepage it is showing correctly with the Catholic Daily Readings (U.S. Lectionary), but when I click a reading, it is still opening up the old Lectionary.  I do have The Catholic Daily Readings and US Lectionary prioritized above the Catholic Lectionary - not sure why it is opening up the wrong one still?
