This arrangement is known as Liturgical year or Christian calendar. The Liturgical year is the unfolding of the mysteries of Christ through the prayers of the Church in the course of one year. The reading of scripture on a theme and events referred to the salvific work of Christ is known as the lectionary. Mar Thoma Church which follows the Antiochene (West Syrian) liturgical tradition. As an eastern reformed church, the reformed principles are reflected in the reading of the church.. - Rev: Jacob John V.
