I suspect we use the same sheet as Jade Constable's church i.e. that produced by the Redemptorists for C of E or RCC lections (we use the Anglican version, of course.... [Biased] . As Jade says, you get all three readings, the Psalm, the Collect and the Post-communion prayer, and space for your weekly notices on t'other side.

Ours are copied and put in church during the preceding week, so that readers can pick one up and go off to practice......and we urge people to take them home after the relevant Sunday Mass, so as to have the readings to hand for private prayer and meditation during the week.

It is indeed the same! Having been to churches with various arrangements, I like this the best.

You say middle class. I say textually literate and not simply wanting to force a single conclusion down the neck of its flock. Let's call the whole thing off......

Currently mostly furious, and occasionally foolish. Normal service may resume eventually. Or it may not. And remember children, "feiern ist wichtig".

Foolish, potentially deranged witterings

Does the 1662 lectionary give longer passages that start earlier in the text to give the context? If so, how much earlier? Mark, for example, has a habit of starting each part of his story with a phrase like "after which Jesus said/did" ... do you need the previous part of the story to set the context? When you have a long discourse, eg: the Sermon on the Mount or some parts of Johns Gospel, does the 1662 Lectionary start at the beginning of that discourse just so we get the "Jesus said" in there?

1662 had huge chunks, whole chapters and followed whole books sequentially - not even a break for special readings on Christmas Day.
The scriptures were not to be read in little chunks. A proper diet needs a mix of .foods for wholesome development. Thus Cranmer insisted that not merely parts, .but the whole of the scriptures was to be used. (Anyone who follows his lectionary will soon find that to be the case; only genealogies are omitted.) This
reveals a profound, catholic consciousness of the importance of the whole story of God's dealings. Only then could the parts of scripture be appreciated properly, even if many were "too high" for the simple.
