It would be cool if we can personalize the homepage of logos a bit more by incorporating daily bible reading apps such as this https://www.goarch.org/-/daily-reading-app and then have them to link to my other resources for further study. The lectionary and saints of the day are already built-in to the daily bible reading app.

Asking to inform myself: Do the Orthodox have a standardized Lectionary? I've seen other threads before about this concern about matching up on Logos before and it made me curious.

Being new to orthodoxy I am not sure I am the best one to answer. But I will share my current understanding. The lectionary readings are no consistent among orthodox Christians. Russians have slightly different readings than Greeks, and even within the Greeks, there are different readings. Some are following the old Calendar and some are following the new. That just scratches the surface as to the differences. The church I belong to recommended this particular app. Yet every time I fire up logos I have to make changes and the lectionaries I own do not always line up.

No more so nor less so than other churches:

Lutherans, for example, has the old 1 year style, the new 3 year RCL based style, the innovative Narrative style, the optional Season of Creation 4 week modification to some other style, the German unified church style ...

The Catholics have universal base calendars by rite ... so in the West think Latin (Roman) rite, Ambrosian rite, Mozarabic rite ... and then it has the 27 or so Eastern rites.

There are similarities among all the lectionaries based historically on the Byzantine lectionary, and similarities among the lectionaries based historically on the Syriac lectionary.

In short, there are a handful of masterplans into which lectionaries fall but myriads of actualizations of those masterplans.
