Occasionally the revisions in the RCL depart from the Gospel chosen by the Vatican in the original three year lectionary. This Sunday is one of those Sundays. Everyone is reading essentially the same passage from Galatians, but the other readings set for this Sunday will not match between Roman Catholic and RCL communities.

It is fascinating, however, that on this Sunday Roman Catholics, Episcopalians (Anglicans), and others are praying the same collect (opening prayer) this Sunday. Here is a commentary to that prayer.

Others are using a different collect.
Commentary for the collect set for New Zealand Anglicans.
Commentary for the collect set for Common Worship (CofE).
