XII Sunday after Pentecost
The twelfth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite and its liturgical colour is green. This year it is the first Sunday of September and the beginning of the Pars Autumnalis volume of the Breviary.
At Vespers yesterday afternoon the antiphons and psalms of Saturday were sung. The Office hymn was Jam sol recedit igneus. The antiphon on the Magnificat was Cum audisset Job for the Saturday before the first Sunday of September. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations were sung of the preceding Office of St. Raymund Nonnatus, of St. Giles and of the Holy Twelve Brothers. The Suffrage was omitted as were the Dominical preces at Compline.
At Mattins the invitatory is Dominum qui fecit nos and the Office hymn isNocte surgentes. In the first nocturn the lessons are the Incipit of the Book of Job. In the second nocturn the lessons are from St. Gregory's Book of Morals. In the third nocturn the homily on the Gospel is from the writings of the Venerable Bede. The Te Deum is sung. At Lauds the Office hymn is Ecce jam noctis. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations are sung of St. Giles and of the Holy Twelve Brothers followed by the Suffrage of the Saints.
At Prime both Quicumque and the Dominical preces are sung.
Mass is sung after Terce. The Gloria is sung, the second collect is of St. Giles, the third collect is of the Holy Twelve Brothers. The Creed is sung and the preface is of the Blessed Trinity.
At Vespers the Office hymn is Lucis creator. After the collect of the Sunday a commemoration is sung of the following feast of St. Stephen of Hungary followed by the Suffrage of the Saints. At Compline the Dominical preces are sung.
In the 'liturgical books of 1962' at Vespers there were no commemorations. Mattins is cut down to a single nocturn of three lessons. At Lauds there are no commemorations nor Suffrage. Quicumque is only said once a year at Prime and the Dominical preces have been abolished. At Mass there is but a single collect. At Vespers there are no commemorations nor Suffrage and the Domincal preces have been abolished at Compline.
