Friday March 18
St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Ember Friday in Lent
Matins: III Nocturns
I: Scripture from Common 8, II: Legend from Proper (E117, * indicates the end of the Lesson and therefore the point at which the Respond – Common 8 – is inserted), III: from Common 8, but Lesson ix is (Lesson iii or entire Homily) from the Ember Friday.
Alternatively Matins can be said by Rule 2. If Matins is said by Rule 2 the Ember Friday is not commemorated in Matins.
Lauds: of Lauds 1, no Preces, Collect E116, Commem. of Ember Friday (C221, A22, C221).
Preces are never said on Doubles! Even if a Double is merely commemorated.
Little Hours: as in the Psalter (no Preces), Prime as for a Feast, Collect E116.
Vespers: 1st Vespers of St. Joseph, all from the Feast (E118-19), Commem. St. Cyril (Table 8c, E116), Commem. Feria (C221, A42, C221).
Compline: of Sunday
