In the second nocturn the lessons are taken from a St. Augustine's City of God. In the third nocturn the homily on St. Luke's Gospel is from St. Jerome. The Te Deum is sung. At Lauds, after the collect of the Sunday, a commemoration is sung of the Seven Holy Brothers followed by the Suffrage of the Saints.

Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung, the second collect is of the Seven Holy Brothers, the third collect is A cunctis. The Creed is sung and the preface is of the Blessed Trinity.
Vespers are of the Sunday (Pss. 109, 110, 111, 112 & 113) and the Office hymn is Lucis creator. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations are sung of the following feast of St. Pius I and of the Seven Holy Brothers followed by the Suffrage of the Saints.
