… is almost upon us. I say almost because the full Propers for Lent do not begin until the First Sunday of Lent (see AB C203). From Ash Wednesday to (not including) the First Sunday of Lent the Office is said as in the Pre-Lenten Season with this one addition: at all Hours the Preces are now said.
I have not had the time (yet) to pay sufficient attention to the Anglican Breviary blog but this will son change as I settle in to my new routine.
I wish all of you a blessed Lent and encourage you to – if you can – to meditate and pray through the Seven Penitential Psalms p. S91 (Appendix) each Friday in Lent (or as you are able).
