* The CTO adopts the Pian establishment of the full Office of the Dead for All Souls' Day with some nuances for the Office itself which will be treated in a separate post devoted to this day. For now, we reckon that the Office of the Octave of All Saints is well represented during the week following such that there is room to diverge and give undivided attention to the Church Suffering on 2 November to complete the Communion of Saints' "Triduum" begun with Christ the King.

Feasts added since 1570 which the CTO adopts, but sometimes with lower rankings:
4 Nov - St. Charles Borromeo - Universal cult and important figure of the Tridentine era.
15 Nov - St. Albert the Great - Doctor of the Church.
16 Nov - St. Gertrude, Virgin - Universal cult.
21 Nov - Presentation of the B.V.M. - Important Eastern feast which the Western Church rightly adopted after 1570.

Feasts added between 1570 and 1962 which the CTO does not adopt:
10 Nov - St. Andrew Avellino - local or expired cult.
13 Nov - St. Didacus - local or expired cult.
14 Nov - St. Josaphat - regional cult.
19 Nov - St. Elizabeth of Hungary, Widow - regional cult.
20 Nov - St. Felix of Valois, Confessor - local or expired cult.
26 Nov - St. Sylvester, Abbot & Confessor - local or expired cult.

Overall, November is a medium-festal month, less so than August but more so than September and October, as was the case already in 1570.
