The ninth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite and its liturgical colour is green. This year it is the first Sunday of August. The Gospel pericopes from St. Luke contain the account of the LORD casting out the money lenders in the temple.

The antiphon on the Magnificat was Sapientia for the Saturday before the first Sunday of August. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations were sung of the preceding feast of St. Peter's Chains, of St. Paul the Apostle, of St. Alphonsus Liguori and of St. Stephen. The Suffrage of the Saints was omitted. At Compline the Dominical preces were omitted.
At Mattins the invitatory is Dominum qui fecit nos and the Office hymn isNocte surgentes. In the first nocturn the lessons are the Incipiunt of the Proverbs of Solomon. In the second nocturn the lessons are taken from a tract of St. Ambrose on the 118th Psalm. In the third nocturn the homily on St. Luke's Gospel is from St. Gregory. The Te Deum is sung. At Lauds after the collect of the Sunday commemorations are sung of St. Alphonsus Liguori and of St. Stephen. The Suffrage of the Saints is omitted.

After the collect of the Sunday commemorations are sung of the following Office of the Finding of the Body of St. Stephen the Protomartyr and of St. Alphonsus Liguori.
