For the first time in thirty-three years, Catholics observe of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on a cycle A Sunday. We get two close appearances of Philippians 2:6-11 in the Sunday readings. The Pauline hymn (composed or quoted–we don’t know) appears on 14 September, then two weeks later on the 26th Ordinary Sunday, the Lectionary gives us an expanded version, 2:1-11.
On September 28th, there is the option of reading a shorter version, 2:1-5. It is a rare occasion I will use the shorter choice when the Lectionary gives it. (Sometimes I want to add verses left out.)
So how would you armchair liturgists plan for this? Ignore a great reading one or both weeks? Use the shorter one on the 28th and spare curious looks from the assembly? How about homilists? Preach it both times in honor of the year of Paul?
Trivia question: when else does the Lectionary give us the same Scripture not two weeks apart, but on consecutive Sundays? It happens twice, as far as I can recall.
