Preces and Suffrage are never said on Doubles!

Tuesday March 1st

St. David, B.C. Double

Matins: by Rule 1 (see p. xli)

Nocturn I: Lesson 1 (Genesis Lesson i), Lesson 2 (combine Lessons ii & iii), Lesson 3 (Legend p. E107).

Lauds 1: All from Psalter, Antiphons are doubled. From Chapter from Common 10. No Preces. No Suffrage. Collect from Feast.

Little Hours & Compline: of the feria. At Prime, Terce, Sext and None Chapter from Feast. Compline no Preces.

II Vespers: all from the Psalter, Antiphons doubled. From Chapter of the Feast.

If St. Chad is kept as a double his Office is followed from the Chapter and St. David is commemorated in Vespers (p. F4-S19). Because both Sts. David and Chad are monastics their Commons are the same. The commemoration of St. David must use different Antiphon on Magnificat and Verse and Responses that St. Chad. The comm. material must be taken from lauds (except the Collect of course).

Wednesday March 2nd

The Feast of St. Chad is given in the Supplement section of the AB and is optional. If you opt to keep the Feast: Matins by rule 1 and the other hours as at the Feast for St. David using Common 10.

Matins: I Nocturn (Genesis)

Lauds 2, Little Hours & Compline: of the feria.

Because the Office is of the feria the Preces are said!

Vespers: of the feria

If St. Aelred is kept as a double his Office is followed from the Chapter and St. Chad is commemorated in Vespers (p. F4-S20). Because both Sts. Aelred and Chad are monastics their Commons are the same. The commemoration of St. Chad must use different Antiphon on Magnificat and Verse and Responses that St. Aelred. The comm. material must be taken from lauds (except the Collect of course).

Thursday March 3d

The Feast of St. Aelred is given in the Supplement section of the AB and is optional. If you opt to keep the Feast: Matins by rule 1 and the other hours as at the Feast for St. David using Common 10.

    When Lauds 2 is used on a Sunday, unless otherwise specified , the Dominical Preces are always said. Is that correct? I am assuming that the Dominical part only refers to Sunday. I am very thankful to the Holy Ghost and you Father that you have begun to do the Ordovician again. I am tryingbto follow the Simple Kalendar and very happy back in the AB again.

      Excellent question Charles,

      I had to re-read the rubrical section that confusing bit of the Office. I am afraid I have not made the distinction between Dominical (abridged) and the ferial (unabridged) Preces. This only goes for the Office of Prime. The rule for Dominical Preces is that when the Preces have been said (at all) in Lauds they will always be ferial in Prime otherwise they will be Dominical. The Preces of Lauds come in only one form and are to be said whenever the office of the day is a Greater Feria without commemorations of a Double Feast:

      On certain Greater Ferias, if the Office be of the Feria, the Preces are said kneeling; at all other times they are omitted at Lauds.
      p. A24.

      There is of course one exception: if the Double commemorated on the Greater Feria is a simplified Double (which in effect means that the Double Feast is treated as if it were a Simple) the Preces are still said kneeling – the simplified Double is treated as a Simple in this respect also.

      Iow the Ordo I have written should be revised accordingly. All Sundays of lauds 2 do not have Preces unless they are Greater Ferias. The only Preces said should be at Prime and Compline – to be preicse it should be the abridged, Dominical, Preces.

      I apologize for throwing everyone off …
