As per this web page, several saints have been added to the associated lectionaries without readings. Note that the Lutheran Service Book Daily lectionary is not available in Logos - an omission of unknown origin. This is what one gets when clicking on the card in the home page - rather than the lectionary layout.

Could someone with access to the current Lutheran Service Book check if there are recommended readings for the sanctoral cycle? Thank you

You asked this a while back, but to answer your question, yes and no.  In the list of lectionaries, there are some "Feast and Festival" days that include Saints, such as St. Andrew - Nov 30, and St. John - Dec 27.  These days have associated readings.  Then there are "Commemorations", such as the ones you were looking at.  These do not have associated readings.

Thanks Russell. That's what I suspected but I prefer to actually know.
