XX Sunday after Pentecost

The twentieth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite. This year it is the second Sunday of October. The Gospel pericopes from St. John give the account of the healing of the ruler's son at Capharnaum.

At Vespers yesterday afternoon the psalms of Saturday were sung. The antiphon on the Magnificat was Refulsit sol for the Saturday before the Second Sunday in October. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations were sung of the preceding Office of SS Dionysius, Rusticus & Eleutherius and of St. Francis Borgia. After the commemorations the Suffrage of the Saints was sung. At Compline the Dominical preces were sung.

At Mattins the invitatory is Adoremus Dominum etc., the hymn Primo die, as last week. In the first nocturn the lessons continue to be read from the First Book of the Machabees. In the second nocturn the lessons are from St. Augustine writings on the City of God. In the third nocturn the homily is from St. Gregory on the Gospel. At Lauds the Office hymn is Aeterne rerum Conditor as last week. After the collect of the Sunday, a commemoration is sung of St. Francis Borgia followed by the Suffrage of the Saints.

At Prime (Pss. 117, 118i & 118ii) both Quicumque and the Dominical preces are sung.

Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung, the second collect is of St. Francis Borgia. The third collect is A cunctis. The Creed is sung as is the preface of the Blessed Trinity.

Vespers are first Vespers of the following feast of the Maternity of the BVM. The liturgical colour is white. The antiphons Beata es etc are sung with the Psalms from the Common of the BVM (109, 112, 121, 126 & 147). The Office hymn is Ave, maris stella. A commemoration is sung of the Sunday. At Compline Te lucis is sung with the Doxology and melody of the Incarnation Jesu tibi sit gloria etc.

In the 'liturgical books of 1962' there are no commemorations or Suffrage at Vespers nor Domincial preces at Compline. Mattins is cut down to one nocturn of three lessons. At Lauds there is neither a commemoration nor Suffrage. Quicumque and the preces are not sung at Prime. At Mass there is one collect. Vespers are of the Sunday without any commemoration.
