I received a new commentary on the Acts last week and was enjoying looking through the new book when I thought to myself: how often do we read Acts in the Sunday and Feast Day Propers? Not very often. Here is the answer. St. Stephen: Acts 7:55 Easter Monday: Acts 10:34 Easter Tuesday: Acts 13:26 Ascension: Acts 1:1 Pentecost: Acts 2:1 Pentecost Monday: Acts 10:34 Pentecost Tuesday: Acts 8:14 Conversion of St. Paul: Acts 9:1 St. Matthias: Acts 1:15 St. Barnabas: Acts 11:22 St. Peter: Acts 12:1 St. James: Acts 11:27 St. Bartholomew: Acts 5:12 Ember Days: Acts 13:44 The BCP has prescribed reading the Acts 18 times in the church year (because the Ember Days occur four times in the year). It has provided only 13 unique readings (as the reading for Easter Monday and Pentecost Monday is identical). I would speculate that most parishes on the one year lectionary are only hearing a reading from the Acts twice a year: Ascension and Pentecost.
