VIII Sunday after Pentecost
The eighth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite and its liturgical colour is green. The Gospel pericopes from St. Luke contain the parable about the unjust steward.
At Vespers yesterday afternoon the antiphons and psalms of Saturday were sung. The Office hymn was Jam sol recedit igneus. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations were sung of the preceding Office of St. Anacletus and of St. Bonaventure. The Suffrage of the Saints was not sung due to the concurrent double feast. At Compline the Dominical preces were omitted for the same reason.
At Mattins the invitatory is Dominum qui fecit nos and the Offici hymn isNocte surgentes. In the first nocturn the lessons are taken from the ninth chapter of the Third Book of the Kings. In the second nocturn the lessons are from St. Augustine's City of God and 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 St. Bonaventure. The Suffrage of the Saints is omitted because of the occurring double feast.
At Prime psalms 117, 118i & 118ii are sung, Quicumque is omitted as are the Dominical preces because of the double feast.
Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung, the second collect is of St. Bonaventure. There is no third collect. 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. Henry and of St. Bonaventure. The Suffrage is omitted as are the Dominical preces at Compline due to the double feasts.
In the 'liturgical books of 1962' there are no commemorations at Vespers. The feast of St. Anacletus has been abolished. Mattins is cut down to a single nocturn of three lessons. There are no commemorations at Lauds. Mass has a single collect. At Vespers there are no commemorations.
