The first section of the book contains the readings for the Principal Feasts and Holy Days, set out for Years A, B, and C. Within each year, the Readings, Collects, and Post Communion Prayers are set out in full, even when they are common to all three years there is no need for constant page turning to find the necessary material. As a further aid to easy use, the Collects and Post Communions appear alongside the Readings for the day, and not in a separate section. For most Sundays and all Festivals, this means that all the material for the day flows as a single section, again avoiding the distraction of constant page turning. In Ordinary Time, where the Collects and Post Communions relate to the day, and the Readings to the date, a table precedes the period, followed by the prayers, and finally the Readings. The tables and on-page cross-references make the task of linking the appropriate material together as straightforward as possible. During Ordinary Time after Trinity Sunday, two strands of Readings are available, clearly identified on each day as Continuous and Related.
