N.B. Today, we begin using the Roman Calendrical nomenclature for the titles (e.g. Pridie Kalendas Augusti for today) of these daily, ordinal posts while retaining the modern dating system (e.g. 31 July) at the heading. This is to be consistent with our classical Roman approach to the Scriptural lessons for the next four months and also to more clearly identify the correct entry in the Martyrology (a topic which we will visit soon).
