VII Sunday after Pentecost


The seventh Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite. The Gospel of the Sunday, from St. Matthew, has the account of the LORD's warning about false prophets and the fruits of good and bad trees.

At Vespers yesterday commemorations were sung of the preceding Office of St. Camillus of Lellis and of St. Vincent de Paul. The Dominical preces were omitted at Compline because of the occurring double feast.

At Mattins, as usual, there are three nocturns. In the first nocturn the lessons are the incipit, the beginning, of the Third Book of Kings. In the second nocturn the lessons are from St. Jerome and in the third nocturn the lessons are from a homily by St. Hilary.

At Lauds a commemoration of the occuring feast of St. Vincent de Paul is sung. At Prime Quicumque and the Dominical preces are omitted because of the occurring double feast.

Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung and after the collect of the day the second collect is of St. Vincent de Paul. The Creed is sung and the preface is that of Sunday.

At Vespers commemorations are sung of the following feast of St. Jermome Emilian, St. Vincent de Paul and St. Margaret of Antioch.

In the 'liturgical books of 1962' there are no commemorations at Vespers. Mattins is cut down to one nocturn. There are no commemorations at Lauds. Mass has a single collect. St. Vincent de Paul is ignored this year.

"St. Vincent de Paul is ignored this year."

Well, not in Rorate Caeli!

Rubricarius,

We had six candles on the altar for Sung Mass today. One of them went out and the server went to replace it but the priest waved him away - it was just after the Consecration.
Could you please enlighten me on the rule concerning the candles on the altar?
