Gospel difference


In the Latin Mass for Palm Sunday, is the Gospel different from year to year?


No. The Passion of St. Matthew is always read on Palm Sunday.

On Holy Tuesday, the Passion of St. Mark is read, followed by the Passion of St. Luke on Spy Wednesday. The Passion of St. John is read on Good Friday.

On many occasions, it is also read in the vernacular at the same time.


In the ordinary form year A is Mathew, Year B is Mark and year C is Luke on Palm Sunday
On Holy Thursday there is no passion read, it is the Gospel of John and the washing of the feet
Good Friday though is the passion according to John


Thank you for answering this. My 15 year old was asking this exact question tonight at dinner. Now I can give him the answer tomorrow at breakfast.
