Scripture of the Day
Mass Readings
The Letter to the Ephesians, chapter four, verses one thru six;
Psalm Twenty-four, verses one thru four (a,b), five, & six;
The Gospel according to Luke, chapter twelve, verses fifty-four thru fifty-nine;

or, for the Diocesan Assembly:
The Letter to the Romans, chapter ten, verses nine thru eighteen;
Psalm Nineteen, verses two thru five;
The Gospel according to John, chapter seventeen, verses eleven & seventeen thru twenty-three.

Commentary: I would presume that a bishop has pretty wide-ranging authority to determine which readings are read in his diocese.
