Question from on 06-30-2007:
What year is it in Ordinary Time. Year One or Year Two and where can I find this information?
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 07-02-2007:
New cycles begin with Advent every year and are the same during all seasons as during ordinary time.
The Lectionary cycles of readings for Sundays include three sets of readings -- cycles A, B, and C. We are currently in cycle C. In December, we will begin cycle A.
The Lectionary cycles of readings for weekdays include two sets of readings -- cycles 1 and 2. We are currently in cycle 1. An easy way to remember which weekday cycle we are in is that it corresponds (odd-even) to the year. It is 2007 -- odd. Therefore, we are in cycle 1 -- odd. Next year, 2008, is even. Therefore, we will be in cycle 2 -- even.
