I know some Catholic clergy and a very few liturgists opt for the readings of the day. If that’s your eschatological choice, more power to you. For those using a “Mass of Thanksgiving,” would you use two readings or three? Which Scriptures would you choose? Don’t forget to inform your lectors and prepare your Lectionary for the day, eh?
My new parish doesn’t have readings in the pews, but we do provide the WLP “Seasonal Missalette”: for folks who are hard-of-hearing. Their suggestions for next Thursday are 1 Kings 8:55-61, Psalm 145, 1 Corinthians 1:3-9, and Luke 1:39-55. Our associate pastor decided to go with these. The Magnificat was a slight surprise, but I like the selection. Luke’s Ten Lepers is done a lot, perhaps overmuch.
What Scriptures would you select for your parish’s Thanksgiving liturgy? I’d be interested to hear.
