On the Home Page, "Lectionary" is one of the Dashboard options.  I was expecting to see the Roman Missal, 3rd Edition, as one of the items I could select.  I have a license to the book in VERBUM 8.  But it doesn't show up as an item on the list of Lectionaries I can choose from. 

Why wouldn't it be considered a Lectionary?

Because it isn't a lectionary? Lectionaries are the lessons/reading for a service provided either as the text or as a Bible reference. Ritual books such as the Missal contain the prayers and rituals for a service. Sometimes they are combined as in the Book of Common Prayer or the Lutheran Service Book. In L7 the default layout for the lectionary included the Missal - I haven't double checked that it does in L8.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Hmmm. The 1962 Missale Romanum contains its own lectionary. It doesn't show up on the list either. (I would have been rather surprised if it had.)
