Gospel Readings for Lent and Easter (Year A, B, and C)

It is highly recommended to reflect on the Word of God during the seasons of Lent and Easter. Start with reading the text and pausing in prayerful silence. Then, write your reflection. 


It does not matter how simple it is as long as it is your personal reflection. You may keep it on a notebook for future reference or post it as a blog in the internet. 


You may also extend to include the readings for Ash Wednesday, Holy Week and Easter. It is important to determine the liturgical year (A, B, or C) in order to know the readings. Provided below are the readings for the Lenten Season and Easter Sunday.
