Because the readings and structure of the Catholic Mass are formal and universal, they do not vary from one parish to another and can be tracked quite simply by a layperson at home. Many websites, including the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, update each day with the readings or have them available for the entire year. It is also possible to buy a physical book that has the readings for the year from each day's Mass.

A number of websites allow visitors to view Catholic Masses online, including CatholicTV.com and EWTN.com. EWTN is also a television network. In some areas viewers can pick it up with an antenna, which allows them to watch the daily Mass on their television. This service is invaluable to housebound Catholics who cannot make it to Mass, but it can also benefit people who would like to watch the Mass every day but whose schedule does not allow them to attend in person.
