Lectionary Calendar: Online and Downloadable

Here is a neat, free offering from Concordia Publishing House, the publishing house of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. They call it the CPH Pocket Diary Calendar.

The CPH Pocket Diary is now available as an Internet-based or downloadable calendar file. This file includes the complete set of occasions from the Lutheran Service Book Three-Year Lectionary, including descriptive paragraphs for all Commemorations, pericopes for dates in the Church Year, and additional reminders and important dates.
Basically it's a Google Calendar which you can view online, but directions are also provided for downloading it into Microsoft Outlook or iCal for Macs. If you sync a PDA using either of these programs, then you can get into that as well. I simply added it to my own Google Calendar where it is easy to turn on/off. (HT: Cyberbrethren)
BTW, this lectionary is essentially the Revised Common Lectionary with occasional variants or alternative readings. If you have questions about a particular lectionary reading, I always go to Jenee Woodward's incredible Textweek site.
