Apart from Wednesday of this week, and of course All Soul's Day, all the days are of the Octave of All Saints and of semi-double rite.
The Office is as on the feast except that ferial psalmody is used and, of course, the antiphons for the psalms are not doubled. At Mattins the first nocturn lessons are from the prophet Ezechiel, the begining of his book having been transferred from Sunday to Monday. In the second nocturn SS Bede, Bernard and Chrysostom provide the lessons and in the third nocturn the homilies are from St. Augustine.
At Mass the proper Gaudeamus is sung with Gloria and Creed. The second collect is of the Holy Ghost, Deus, qui corda and the third for the Church or pope.
On Tuesday the prescribed Mass was of the 'resumed Sunday' celebrated in green without Gloria and Creed with the second collect of the Octave and the third Deus, qui corda. With no Gloria the dismissal was Benedicamus Domino. 'Private' Masses on Monday were permitted of the Octave with a commemoration of the resumed Sunday and third collect Deus, qui corda.
On Wednesday the feast of St. Charles Borromeo, Archbishop of Milan, was celebrated as a double. The Octave was commemorated at Vespers, Lauds and Mass and a commemoration made of SS Vitalis and Agricola.
In the 'liturgical books of 1962' fourth class ferial days replace the former days once graced by the celebration of the Octave. St. Charles is reduced to a third class feast of three lessons. On Saturday the Saturday celebration of the BVM takes place.
