Readings - Sunday, 24 October 2021 -Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (Proper 25)

Note: There are two sets of first readings (with accompanying Psalms) given for the Sundays after Pentecost: (a) a new semi-continuous set, and (b) a set related thematically to the gospels (as in the earlier form of the lectionary). It is intended that either one of these two sets be used throughout and that they not be mixed.
