We have received some inquiries regarding the Weekday Lectionary as it is out of print.  The Lectionary: Weekdays has been revised.  The manuscript is currently being prepared for   the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.  Once recognitio has been received it will be published in a Year I and Year II format.   It takes roughy 3 months for the finished product once the manuscript has been submitted to the printers.  Please note that for those who require Scripture readings from either Volume, they are "on-line" on the National Liturgy Office website under Liturgical Calendar.
