The Lectionary website provides a calendar for the lesson texts of the Episcopal (TEC) Eucharistic Lectionary. The lessons are drawn from The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible while the collects and the Psalms are taken from the Book of Common Prayer. The collects, which are brief prayers often opening the worship service, use contemporary wording.
