    I am admittedly new to the Anglican Breviary, but am a long-time user of the Latin Monasticum Breviarium. I was wondering if you could clarify a few things for me.

    You list the following for Whitsundy:
    Matins: Inv. & Hymn C426. IX Lessons. I Nocturn, John 14, 15 / St. Gregory the Pope.

    From where do the IX lessons come? There are only three for Whitsundy, and no * to break them into nine. If you include St. Gregory, then you total six.

    And why is Gregory (May 25) apparently being translated to a Class I Sunday?

    • Father Gregory says:

      Hi Ryan,

      Good catch !

      That should read III Lessons not IX. The AB does differ from the Breviarium Monasticum but not THAt much 🙂

      I will correct the Ordo. I suppose I should have somebody else proof-read before publishing.

        I hope that my brevity did not make me seem rude. I am very grateful for this resource. My greatest hurdle so far in figuring out the ordo is Matins. I am used to Matins being either two (on ferias) or three (on Sundays and Doubles) Notcurns. Also, in the Breviarium, the Temporale and Sanctorum seem generally to have meatier specific rubrics.

      • Father Gregory says:

        Dear Ryan,

        Don’t worry you’re fine! No offense taken at all. I am very happy at the interest you show in the Anglican Breviary.

        The Anglican Breviary takes after the Secular (Roman/Sarum/Gallican) Breviary rather than the Monastic (Benedict). So on feria’s it usually has I Nocturn and on doubles/Sundays III (except for some very ancient feasts such as Pentecost when it has only I Nocturn in spite of being a D1 I cl.

    • Father Gregory says:

      Btw St Gregory VII was not listed on the ACC annual Ordo Kalendar. I usually take my cue from that Kalendar rather than the Anglican Breviary’s Universal or Simple Kalendar. Also if in the S-section there is an English Catholic or when the ACC Kalendar has an Anglican saint generally prefer those over the Roman Kalendar (I am after all an Anglican not a Roman Catholic, even if I have absolutely no ill-will towards the Holy See and the ancient Church of Rome).

      • Father Gregory says:

        If St. Augustine of Cantebury is kept as I Class Double (which seems to be the case in the ACC Ordo) he is translated to June 4th. I mistakenly added a commem. of him in the previous week. I am not sure what you mean by St. Gregory VII and the I Class Sunday?
