XVI Sunday after Pentecost
The sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite. This year it is the first Sunday of October. Its liturgical colour is green. The Gospel pericopes from St. Luke are of the LORD healing the man with dropsy on the Sabbath.
At Vespers yesterday the antiphons and psalms of Saturday were sung. The antiphon on the Magnificat was Adaperiat Dominus for the Saturday before the first Sunday of October. After the collect of the Sunday a commemoration was sung of the occurring feast of the Holy Guardian Angels. The Suffrage was omitted due to the double feast as were the Dominical preces at Compline.
At Mattins there are the usual three nocturns. The invitatory is Adoremus Dominum, qui fecit nos and the hymn is Primo die. This combination is now kept in the Sunday office until Advent. In the first nocturn the lessons are the Incipit of the firt Book of Machabees. In the second nocturn the lessons are from the book of Offices by St. Ambrose. In the third nocturn the lessons are again from St. Ambrose, a homily on St. Lukes's Gospel. The Te Deum is sung. At Lauds a commemoration is sung of the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels and the Suffrage is omitted.
At Prime (Pss. 117, 118i & 118ii) both Quicumque and the Dominical preces are omitted due to the occurring double feast.
Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung, the second collect is of the Holy Guardian Angels. There is no third collect. The Creed is sung, the preface is of the Holy Trinity and proper last Gospel of the Holy Guardian Angels.
Vespers are of the Sunday. After the collect of the Sunday a commemoration is sung of the following feast of St. Theresa and of the Holy Guardian Angels. The Suffrage is omitted due to the occurring double feast as are the Dominical preces at Compline.
In the 'liturgical books of 1962' at Vespers there are no commemorations. Mattins is slashed down to one nocturn of three lessons. At Lauds there are no commemorations. At Mass there is only one collect. At Vespers there are no commemorations.
