The Sentence, Collect, NRSV (Anglicized Version) RCL readings with the APBA psalm are in the process of being prepared for each Sunday and Holy Day. This may be of some interest to Anglicans in Australia. I generally have used longer alternatives for the readings and, where set, use the alternative OT and psalm readings, in the [square brackets] - those which relate to the gospel for the day. Links to where these readings have been saved are where the a, b, or c. after the Sunday / Saints Day is underlined.
