President Barack Obama signs the Medal of Honor award citation with Sergeant Kyle J. White and family in the Oval Office prior to a Medal of Honor ceremony in the East Room of the White House, May 13, 2014.
The Day will be marked at a time when COVID-19 pandemic continues to upend lives and livelihoods of people globally.
Beyond its immediate impact on physical health, the COVID-19 pandemic has also exacerbated psychological suffering and mental health problems, including depression and anxiety, as pandemic-related restrictions continue in various forms in many countries. This has highlighted the urgent need to address the mental health dimension of the pandemic, in addition to the physical health aspects.
The message of Yoga in promoting both the physical and mental well-being of humanity has never been more relevant. A growing trend of people around the world embracing Yoga to stay healthy and rejuvenated and to fight social isolation and depression has been witnessed during the pandemic. Yoga is also playing a significant role in the psycho-social care and rehabilitation of COVID-19 patients in quarantine and isolation. It is particularly helpful in allaying their fears and anxiety.
Recognizing this important role of Yoga, this year’s commemoration of the International Day of Yoga focuses on “Yoga for well-being” - how the practice of Yoga can promote the holistic health of every individual.
The United Nations offers yoga resources to its personnel and others on the COVID-19 portal's section on Wellness.
The World Health Organization mentions yoga as a means to improve health in its Global action plan on physical activity 2018–2030: more active people for a healthier world.
UNICEF says kids can practice many yoga poses without any risk and get the same benefits that adults do. These benefits include increased flexibility and fitness, mindfulness and relaxation.
2021 virtual event
The Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations invites you to an online celebration of the 7th annual International Yoga Day on 21 June 2021, from 8:30 to 10:00 am EST, to be broadcast live on UN WebTV.
The event will open with messages from the President of the United Nations General Assembly and the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, which will be followed by demonstrations of Yoga exercises (asanas) to improve physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and an Interactive panel discussion on “Yoga for well-being.”
What is Yoga and why do we celebrate it?
Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.
Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.
Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131.
The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.
The draft resolution establishing the International Day of Yoga was proposed by India and endorsed by a record 175 member states. The proposal was first introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address during the opening of the 69th session of the General Assembly, in which he said: “Yoga is an invaluable gift from our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action . a holistic approach [that] is valuable to our health and our well-being. Yoga is not just about exercise it is a way to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.”
The resolution notes “the importance of individuals and populations making healthier choices and following lifestyle patterns that foster good health.” In this regard, the World Health Organization has also urged its member states to help their citizens reduce physical inactivity, which is among the top ten leading causes of death worldwide, and a key risk factor for non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes.
But yoga is more than a physical activity. In the words of one of its most famous practitioners, the late B. K. S. Iyengar, “Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.”
History of Marriage: 13 Surprising Facts
Moonstruck partners pledging eternal love may be the current definition of marriage, but this starry-eyed picture has relatively modern origins.
Though marriage has ancient roots, until recently love had little to do with it.
"What marriage had in common was that it really was not about the relationship between the man and the woman," said Stephanie Coontz, the author of "Marriage, a History: How Love Conquered Marriage," (Penguin Books, 2006). "It was a way of getting in-laws, of making alliances and expanding the family labor force."
But as family plots of land gave way to market economies and Kings ceded power to democracies, the notion of marriage transformed. Now, most Americans see marriage as a bond between equals that's all about love and companionship. [I Don't: 5 Myths About Marriage]
That changing definition has paved the way for same-sex marriage and Wednesday's (June 26) Supreme Court rulings, which struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and dismissed a case concerning Proposition 8.
From polygamy to same-sex marriage, here are 13 milestones in the history of marriage.
1. Arranged alliances
Marriage is a truly ancient institution that predates recorded history. But early marriage was seen as a strategic alliance between families, with the youngsters often having no say in the matter. In some cultures, parents even married one child to the spirit of a deceased child in order to strengthen familial bonds, Coontz said.
2. Family ties
Keeping alliances within the family was also quite common. In the Bible, the forefathers Isaac and Jacob married cousins and Abraham married his half-sister. Cousin marriages remain common throughout the world, particularly in the Middle East. In fact, Rutgers anthropologist Robin Fox has estimated that the majority of all marriages throughout history were between first and second cousins.
3. Polygamy preferred
Monogamy may seem central to marriage now, but in fact, polygamy was common throughout history. From Jacob, to Kings David and Solomon, Biblical men often had anywhere from two to thousands of wives. (Of course, though polygamy may have been an ideal that high-status men aspired to, for purely mathematical reasons most men likely had at most one wife). In a few cultures, one woman married multiple men, and there have even been some rare instances of group marriages. [Life's Extremes: Monogamy vs. Polygamy]
4. Babies optional
In many early cultures, men could dissolve a marriage or take another wife if a woman was infertile. However, the early Christian church was a trailblazer in arguing that marriage was not contingent on producing offspring.
"The early Christian church held the position that if you can procreate you must not refuse to procreate. But they always took the position that they would annul a marriage if a man could not have sex with his wife, but not if they could not conceive," Coontz told LiveScience.
5. Monogamy established
Monogamy became the guiding principle for Western marriages sometime between the sixth and the ninth centuries, Coontz said.
"There was a protracted battle between the Catholic Church and the old nobility and kings who wanted to say 'I can take a second wife,'" Coontz said.
The Church eventually prevailed, with monogamy becoming central to the notion of marriage by the ninth century.
6. Monogamy lite
Still, monogamous marriage was very different from the modern conception of mutual fidelity. Though marriage was legally or sacramentally recognized between just one man and one woman, until the 19th century, men had wide latitude to engage in extramarital affairs, Coontz said. Any children resulting from those trysts, however, would be illegitimate, with no claim to the man's inheritance.
"Men's promiscuity was quite protected by the dual laws of legal monogamy but tolerance &mdash basically enabling &mdash of informal promiscuity," Coontz said.
Women caught stepping out, by contrast, faced serious risk and censure.
7. State or church?
Marriages in the West were originally contracts between the families of two partners, with the Catholic Church and the state staying out of it. In 1215, the Catholic Church decreed that partners had to publicly post banns, or notices of an impending marriage in a local parish, to cut down on the frequency of invalid marriages (the Church eliminated that requirement in the 1980s). Still, until the 1500s, the Church accepted a couple's word that they had exchanged marriage vows, with no witnesses or corroborating evidence needed.
8. Civil marriage
In the last several hundred years, the state has played a greater role in marriage. For instance, Massachusetts began requiring marriage licenses in 1639, and by the 19th-century marriage licenses were common in the United States.
9. Love matches
By about 250 years ago, the notion of love matches gained traction, Coontz said, meaning marriage was based on love and possibly sexual desire. But mutual attraction in marriage wasn't important until about a century ago. In fact, in Victorian England, many held that women didn't have strong sexual urges at all, Coontz said.
10. Market economics
Around the world, family-arranged alliances have gradually given way to love matches, and a transition from an agricultural to a market economy plays a big role in that transition, Coontz said.
Parents historically controlled access to inheritance of agricultural land. But with the spread of a market economy, "it's less important for people to have permission of their parents to wait to give them an inheritance or to work on their parents' land," Coontz said. "So it's more possible for young people to say, 'heck, I'm going to marry who I want.'"
Modern markets also allow women to play a greater economic role, which lead to their greater independence. And the expansion of democracy, with its emphasis on liberty and individual choice, may also have stacked the deck for love matches.
11. Different spheres
Still, marriage wasn't about equality until about 50 years ago. At that time, women and men had unique rights and responsibilities within marriage. For instance, in the United States, marital rape was legal in many states until the 1970s, and women often could not open credit cards in their own names, Coontz said. Women were entitled to support from their husbands, but didn't have the right to decide on the distribution of community property. And if a wife was injured or killed, a man could sue the responsible party for depriving him of "services around the home," whereas women didn't have the same option, Coontz said.
12. Partnership of equals
By about 50 years ago, the notion that men and women had identical obligations within marriage began to take root. Instead of being about unique, gender-based roles, most partners conceived of their unions in terms of flexible divisions of labor, companionship, and mutual sexual attraction.
13. Gay marriage gains ground
Changes in straight marriage paved the way for gay marriage. Once marriage was not legally based on complementary, gender-based roles, gay marriage seemed like a logical next step.
"One of the reasons for the stunningly rapid increase in acceptance of same sex marriage is because heterosexuals have completely changed their notion of what marriage is between a man and a woman," Coontz said. "We now believe it is based on love, mutual sexual attraction, equality and a flexible division of labor."

- CG & GS come from the retrosheet data and should be complete and pretty accurate from 1901 on.
- Innings played (like SB and CS) come from the retrosheet play-by-play data and should be considered mostly complete from 1916 to 1972 and complete from then on.

The Lectionary Page
During the long green season after Pentecost, there are two tracks (or strands) each week for Old Testament readings. Within each track, there is a Psalm chosen to accompany the particular lesson.
The Revised Common Lectionary allows us to make use of either of these tracks, but once a track has been selected, it should be followed through to the end of the Pentecost season, rather than jumping back and forth between the two strands .
The first track of Old Testament readings (“Track 1”) follows major stories and themes, read mostly continuously from week to week. In Year A we begin with Genesis, in Year B we hear some of the great monarchy narratives, and in Year C we read from the later prophets.
A second track of readings (“Track 2”) follows the Roman Catholic tradition of thematically pairing the Old Testament reading with the Gospel reading, often typologically—a sort of foretelling of Jesus Christ’s life and ministry, if you will. This second track is almost identical to our previous Book of Common Prayer lectionary.
Within each track there may be additional readings, complementary to the standard reading these may be used with the standard reading, or in place of it.

A Note about Weekday Observances
In 2006, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church gave final approval to the observances of saints and martyrs found in Lesser Feasts and Fasts, 2006. This is still the last calendar to be given final approval.
The General Convention of 2009 gave approval for trial use of Holy Women, Holy Men, intended as a replacement for Lesser Feasts and Fasts. It was expected that the General Convention of 2012 would either give Holy Women, Holy Men final approval or reject it. However, because a consensus opinion about Holy Women, Holy Men had not emerged, the Convention extended the trial period to 2015 and directed the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music to continue revising Holy Women, Holy Men.
The General Convention of 2015 gave initial approval to a new document called A Great Cloud of Witnesses, replacing Holy Women, Holy Men . In the new document, the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music presented seven criteria for adding commemorations to the calendar and recommended sixteen deletions from the calendar of Holy Women, Holy Men because those persons did not meet all of the seven criteria. The General Convention approved the criteria but not the deletions! Once again the Convention asked the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music to refine the work.
At the General Convention in 2018 a new calendar, Lesser Feasts and Fasts, 2018 was approved for use in 2018 through 2021. At least until 2021, the additions to the calendar of Lesser Feasts and Fasts, 2006 remain provisional. In the calendar accessible through the link below, the commemorations approved only provisionally are shown in square brackets.
T he lessons appointed for the following special services are now available:

For communities continuing to use the older BCP lectionary:
This site was created to support all those who need access to the lesson texts of the Episcopal (TEC) Eucharistic Lectionary.
The Sunday Lectionary is a three year cyclical lectionary. We are currently in Year B. Beginning with the first Sunday of Advent in 2021, we will be in Year C. The year which ended at Advent 2020 was Year A.
The Bible translation used is The New Revised Standard Version, copyright 1989 by the Division of Christian Education of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, and used by permission. The readings have been emended to provide context and clarity for public reading in conformance with the rubrics of the Book of Common Prayer.
The collects and the Psalms are from the Book of Common Prayer. The collects use the contemporary wording.
The liturgical color appropriate for the day is indicated, when the color is green, red or purple, by the color of the numeral against a light grey background. When the liturgical color is white, the numeral is black against a white background.
On weekdays, other than major Holy Days, the color indicated is the color appropriate to the season. When celebrating the feast of a martyred saint, scarlet is also appropriate.
I am always interested in ways to make this site more useful to you. Your feedback is appreciated. And, please, let me know as soon as possible if you catch an error in this material.
Liturgical Calendar available for iCal, Google Calendar, etc
A number of people have asked for a liturgical calendar formatted for iCal, Google Calendar, or any other program that uses the iCalendar format. I have prepared such a calendar, accurate through 2021. You can subscribe to it, through your calendar program, using this url:
Alternatively, using the same url, you may download the calendar file by pasting the url in the destination window of your web browser and hitting the Go button. For most browsers, on most computers, this will result in that file being downloaded and stored in your downloads folder. You can then import it into your calendar program. What is the difference? You cannot alter a calendar to which you are subscribed, but you can alter a calendar imported from a file on your computer. The downside, if there is one, is that corrections made to the original file (that is, my file) will not be replicated on your computer. Your choice.
Please let me know as soon as possible about errors, omissions, or anything else that lessens the usability of this (intentionally) simple calendar.
Other Helpful Resources
Newly available: The Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings are now available online at DailyLectio.net. This three year cycle of daily scripture readings follows and augments the RCL Sunday lections. Note that these readings are keyed to the "generic" RCL, not the RCL as modified for Episcopal worship. The readings for Thursday through Saturday prepare for the Sunday lessons, while the Monday through Wednesday readings reflect on the Sunday lessons. (To be clear: these are not the Daily Office readings from the Book of Common Prayer.)
New resource: A Sermon for Every Sunday offers lectionary based video sermons from a group of accomplished preachers. The sermons are offered "for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes, or for individual use."
A wonderful lectionary-based collection of commentaries, exegesis, articles, art and music suggestions can be found at Textweek.
Sometimes the question is not what we read on a given date, but "When do we read a certain lesson?" The Reverse Lectionary can answer that question.
I am often asked where one can find the Daily Lectionary (a two year cycle) online.
A number of pronunciation guides are available online. The Bible Workshop offers phonetic spelling as well as audible guidance.
The Sunday lectionary in Spanish can be found at St Mark's Press Leccionario Domenical.
The Book of Common Prayer, in both the current and the historical versions, can be found online.
Looking for more information about the saints? James Kiefer's hagiographs are a good starting point.
Want to read the lessons in other translations? Bible Study Tools offers access to the King James, New King James, Revised Standard, New Revised Standard, New American Standard, New International and many other versions in various languages.

*Flitch of Bacon Day: 20 Link Link
(Note: Ceremony is the day after a couple's anniversary. This is why dates vary. But, this date is listed on my site due to the last qualified ceremony on June 20, 1751. So, for over 103 years, June 20th was considered Flitch of Bacon Day. Then the ceremony was revived in 1854. But, the ceremony dates varied with each couple. Some were held in August.The ceremony is not annual.. But, I'm keeping June 20 as the official Flitch of Bacon Day since it was the traditional date for 103 years. So, you can celebrate on June 20 every year, or celebrate every four years on the date set up by the town of Dunmow in England where the ceremonies now take place.
PS: Here is a list of the most recent winners of 2012 at The Dunmow Flitch Trials website

We recommend that editors and instructors make the switch and adopt the seventh edition Publication Manual in January 2020 or thereafter.
In the meantime, we’ve archived the sixth edition APA Style blog, frequently asked questions pages, and other resources here. These will be available until further notice.
