Hi. I'd like to report an error in the Catholic lectionary, "Saints Simon and Jude, apostles" feast. For the Gospel reading it proposes Luke 6:12–16, while it should be Luke 6:12–19.

It's a fantastic tool. Thank you for your work.

The USCCB lists the Gospel reading as we have it, Luke 6:12-16. https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/102821.cfm.

This is surprising. The official lectionaries in Italy and Spain have Lc 6,12-19 as the Gospel passage. For example in the Italian Lectionary, Proper of Saints, page 555 (this file is publicly available).

Pope Francis' meditation in Domus Sanctae Marthae also shows Lc 6,12-19 as the Gospel text for that day:


But it seems the USCCB changed it to Lc 6,12-16? I don't have access to the physical lectionaries to check it, but according to the link you've posted it seems so.

Thank you.

The actual Lectionary (type:monograph) in Verbum also gives the 6:12-16 ... it is not unusual for there to be regional adjustments to the lectionary.

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

It is correct, do not change it. The United States Order of Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours and Celebration of the Eucharist 2021 ("Ordo") states the Gospel on Oct 29 is Luke 6:12-16.

Indeed, it should not be changed. I didn't expect such a difference in lectionaries of different countries.
