Ordo March 6 to March 8

Sunday March 6

Quinquagesima Sunday, II Class, Semidouble, Commemoration of Sts. Perpetua & Felicity

Matins: 3 Nocturns

I Nocturn (Genesis), II Nocturn (Ambrose), III Nocturn (Gregory)

I would not commemorate Sts. Perpetua & Felicity in Lesson ix because the AB direct Rule 1or 2 to be used for this feast. That means there would not have been a Gospel in Matins for the Feast even if it were not Sunday.

Lauds 1: Psalms of Sunday, Antiphons proper (C200), no Preces, collect of Sunday commemoration of Sts. Perpetua & Felicity (Table 13b + Collect: E108-109).

Lauds 1 rather than Lauds 2 is used because a Double (if simplified) feast is kept.

Little Hours & Compline: from the Sunday Psalter. Antiphons p. C201.

Vespers: of Sunday with commemoration of St. Thomas Aquinas (Table 8a + collect E109) Sts. Felicity & Perpetua (Table 13c).

Monday March 7

Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Double

Matins: I Nocturn according to Rule 1.

Lesson i: Genesis, Lesson ii: Genesis (lessons ii & iii combined), Lesson iii: Legend (p. E109-E110).

Lauds 1: Psalms & Antiphons (doubled) from the Psalter. From chapter onward of the feast (use Proper when given or Common if no Proper is given). Collect from the feast.

Little Hours & Compline: As in the Psalter, festal collect.

II Vespers: as in the Psalter, Antiphons doubled. From Chapter onward of the Feast using from Proper what is given or add from the Common if needed.

Tuesday March 8

Matins: I Nocturn (Genesis).

Lauds 2: no Preces. Collect from last Sunday.

Little Hours & Compline: of the feria. Prime – Dominical Preces and Compline – Preces.

Vespers: of the feria.

Tomorrow will be Ash Wednesday, the First Day of Lent. Please read the NOTE on page C203!

      Dear Steven,

      You are welcome!
      I hope you will be able to feel and find your way into a more liturgical form of Prayer! What – if I may ask – is your Protestant background? I have noticed quite a bit of liturgical sensitivity among some Protestants especially some Lutherans…
