The fourth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite and the liturgical colour is green.
At Vespers yesterday afternoon after the collect of the Sunday a commemoration was sung of the Seven Holy Brothers & SS Rufina and Secunda followed by the Suffrage of the Saints. At Compline the Dominical preces were sung.
At Mattins the invitatory is Dominum qui fecit nos and the 'summer' hymn Nocte surgentes is sung. In the first nocturn the lessons are taken from the First Book of Kings. In the second nocturn the lessons are from a sermon of St. Augustine and in the third nocturn from St. Ambrose on the Gospel of St. Luke on the huge catch of fish at the lake of Genesareth. At Lauds a commemoration of the Seven Holy Brothers etc is sung followed by the Suffrage of the Saints.
At Prime Quicumque is sung as are the Dominical preces.
Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung, the second collect is of the Seven Holy Brothers etc., the third collect is A cunctis. The Creed is sung and the preface is of the Blessed Trinity.
Vespers are of the Sunday with commemorations of the following feast of St. Pius I, the Seven Holy Brothers etc. These are followed by the Suffrage of the Saints. At Compline the Dominical preces are sung.
In the 'liturgical books of 1962' there is neither commemoration nor Suffrage at Vespers. At Comline the Domincal preces are never said. Mattins is cut down to one nocturn of three lessons. There is neither commemoration nor Suffrage at Lauds. At Prime Quicumque is not sung and the Dominical preces are omitted. Mass has a single collect. Vespers has no commmemorations and no Suffrage.
