  1. The date is the liturgical date and it changes in the evening, which is the beginning of the Orthodox Church day.
  2. The Scripture readings are in Byzantine Notation, where they are read up to but not including the final verse number. Also, not all readings end at the verse breaks of modern Bibles; this is reflected with verses cited as 5b or 8c to show the proportion of the verse to be read.
