    According to the rubrics of the AB, the office for today (Wed., Dec. 14, 2016) should be that of the Seventh Day in the Octave of the Conception of the BVM, with commemoration of the Ember Wednesday in Advent at Lauds, but Lesson ix at Matins is not of the Feria since it has the same Gospel as the Octave. Is there some other rubric or rule that would supersede this?

    • Father Gregory says:

      Indeed. However, I did not treat the Octave as a Semidouble, but rather as a Simple. That way the Octave is preserved while the Advent Office is not obscured. The link provided to the “Current Tridentine Ordo” blog comes to a similar conclusion. What is more the – if memory serves – the Altar edition of the Anglican Missal treats the Octave as “observed in certain places.” I try to basically follow the Simple Kalendar and I see the other feasts as “local observances.” The AB’s Simple Kalendar is a bit too conservative whereas the Universal Kalendar is too littered with Doubles. Removing about one fourth of the Office of Advent seems a bit much …

      Iow strictly speaking, according to the rubrics given. you would be absolutely correct.

      • Jason B. Grant says:

        OK, now I see the “S.” for “Simple” that you use for days in the Conception Octave. Is there a page in your blog (today is my first visit) that summarizes your exceptions to the AB rubrics so that I can understand the rules you are following?

      • Father Gregory says:

        Well I try to use the “General Kalendar” as I find it in my Altar edition of the Anglican Missal with which the Anglican Breviary is intended to be a companion volume. I have used the Simple Kalendar and the Universal both. Neither really achieves a good balance between the Temporal and Sanctoral Cycles. Of course this is not a new problem and it has been dealt with before in history.

        I do not like making “my own rules” … so I have been trying to find someone else, more qualified than I, with a set of good rules to follow. It seems to me that perhaps the “Current Tridentine Ordo” blog is that more qualified authority.

        The author of that blog uses the Universal Kalendar but with some conservative reform measures to allow the Temporal Cycle to function. I try to incorporate John’s insights into the Anglican Breviary.

        So for the Immaculate Conception see “Octave of the Immaculate Conception” on John’s blog.

        For the Temporal Cycle see: “Proposed Temporale.”

        For the Sanctorale for December see: “Proposed Sanctorale for December.”
