Liturgical Cycle, Year A, Year B and Year C
Why is the year 2013 in liturgical cycle year C? The church has 3 liturgical cycle, Year A, Year B and Year C The cycle also identifies the Gospel used. In Year A, it is the gospel of Matthew (2005, 2008, 2011, 2014, etc); Year B, it is the gospel of Mark (2006, 2009, 2012, etc); and Year B, it is the gospel of Luke (2007, 2010, 2013, etc). The gospel of John is included in all 3 years (A, B, and C) depending on the solemnity, memorial and faith. The liturgical cycle year is related to the number 3. To know whether the year is A, B, or C, we can divide the calendar year with 3. If the remainder is 1, then it is Year A, if the remainder is 2, then it is Year B, and if there is 0, then it is Year C. For example, year 2013 divide by 3 = 671 with no remainder, therefore year 2013 is Year C.
Year A, B, and C determines the reading and gospel, during masses on Sunday (Sunday missal). Daily masses (weekdays other than Sunday, daily missal) reading and gospel is based on even and odd year (Year I/Year II). Therefore year 2013 is Year I.
Therefore, when we have completed the 3 cycles in 3 years and the daily readings Year I/Year II then we have almost covered nearly the whole scripture in the bible within 2 -3 years.
