Is the Synaxarium read on Palm Sunday?

    Nope, Acts straight to Evlogimenos
  • Is there a particular reason why it's not to be read?
  • Not a clue, that's just what CopticReader says.
  • The Synaxarium is not read on Lordly feasts if it commemorates Saints and the only explanation offered is that the focus is on the Lord. However for non-changeable Lordly feasts such as Annunciation, Nativity, Theophany etc there are Synaxarium enteries about the feast which can be read and some churches do but these entries tend to duplicate the gospel reading.
