On Good Friday, if you are doing some form of the Seven Last Words, they serve as your Readings for that day.  In that case, the readings here need not be read on Good Friday. Any Eucharist that day is from the pre-consecrated hosts.

 

Likewise, if you are doing the Saturday Vigil, the Scriptures there serve as your Readings for that Service.  The readings here are for a Saturday morning Service.
