Matins readings for Lent: Index of posts

The weekday readings at Matins in the Benedictine Office during Lent (and the first week and a half of Passiontide) are generally Patristic texts on the Gospel of the Mass of the day (in the EF calendar).

Note: I'm planning to repost these during Lent 2016 and fill in any gaps (due to first class feasts in the year I originally posted them).  I'll also include the responsories where these are readily available online.  Accordingly links may not work temporarily (where I've scheduled them to appear at a particular time).

Ash Wednesday and days after

Gospel and readings for Ash Wednesday (St Matthew 6:16-21; St Augustine on the Sermon on the Mount)
Thursday after Ash Wednesday (St Matthew 6:5-13; St Augustine on the harmony of the Gospels)
Friday after Ash Wednesday (St Matthew 5:43-48; 6:1-4; Homily of St Jerome)
Saturday after Ash Wednesday (St Mark 6:47-56; Homily of St Bede)
