Daily Office for Corpus Christi

For those praying the Daily Office of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer in places where they celebrate Corpus Christi (the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ), there's a bit of a gap, as our prayer book provides propers for Mass (Various Occasions 5) but not for the Office. The parish of St. Mary the Virgin, New York City, comes to our aid with its excellent online documents giving the lessons for each day, and, in the footer, the psalms. As our parish celebrates Corpus Christi tomorrow (Sunday), I'm using these for this evening, tomorrow morning, and tomorrow evening.

YEAR 1 & 2, EVE OF CORPUS CHRISTI, EVENING PRAYER: PSALMS 111, 116; EXODUS 16:2-4, 9-15; JOHN 6:27-35

YEAR 1 & 2, CORPUS CHRISTI, MORNING PRAYER: PSALMS 63:1-8, 96; EXODUS 12:21-27; LUKE 22:7-20

YEAR 1 & 2, CORPUS CHRISTI, EVENING PRAYER: PSALMS 110, 147; PROVERBS 9:1-6; JOHN 15:4-17
