The daily readings on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website provides the current day's readings, which include a first reading usually taken from the Old Testament, and a second reading for Sundays and special liturgical days: the Responsorial Psalm, the Alleluia and the Gospel. The daily entries include the liturgical day (such as the Tuesday of the Third Week of Advent) and the Lectionary number. Users can find readings for other days and weeks by either clicking on the arrows next to the current date, or by searching the calendar. They can also click on the Scripture references next to each reading to read the passages in their full context with the site's online New American Bible service. There are also audio and video versions of some of the readings available.

Readings on the Eternal Word Television Network website include the first reading, second reading (when applicable), Responsorial Psalm and Gospel. This website has a calendar to search other days, and entries also list the season (such as Advent) and liturgical color of the day above the readings.
