The Daily Office Lectionary is on a two-year cycle, designated as Year One and Year Two. This selection of passages of Scripture are used when the Daily Office is read. The Daily Office includes remnants of the monastic Offices and it includes the services of Daily Morning Prayer, Daily Evening Prayer, Noonday Prayer, Evensong, Daily Evening Prayer, and Compline. The Daily Office Lectionary has not been updated in the past fifty years. It is very different from the Revised Common Lectionary. Since the Daily Office is used every day, the user reads through more Scripture in a period of time, therefore this reading cycle requires only two years to complete while the Sunday Eucharistic Lectionary in the Revised Common Lectionary, only being read on Sundays is on a three year cycle.
