Advent Readings

Any idea why during Advent, the daily readings (Monday thru Saturday) have no Second Readings?

Because only Feasts and Solemnities have two readings, and weekdays in Advent don’t rank as Feasts or Solemnities.


Thanks…I had brain gas…of course…just like all weekday Masses (excluding those you mentioned) throughout the year do not have 2nd Readings.

I’m embarrassed and humbled!

Bless you!
