Vespers, sung before noon, of the following Sunday (the Quadragesima formularies now take effect), Comm. of the following St. Frances of Rome, Suffrages of Our Lady, etc. At Compline, Preces.

* By Kneeling Day is meant that all kneel, save the Officiant/Celebrant, in the Office for the all Preces and Collects when the Office is of the Feria during Lent. Likewise, all except the Sacred Mininsters kneel at the Collect, from the Sanctus-Communion, and at the Postcommunion prayers during Masses of the Feria. This is effective from Ash Wednesday through the Paschal Vigil (but not Mass) on Holy Saturday.

Notes:

1. The CTO adds (restores) the feast of Ss. Perpetua & Felicity to 1568/1570 Kalendar this week as a Semidouble on 6 March. The choice of date is as it is post-1911 to avoid perpetual occurrence with St. Thomas Aquinas, though it is not a Double feast as it is under Divino Afflatu.

2. The post-Tridentine era also added the feast of St. John of God on 8 March, which the CTO does not extend universally. This feast remains rightfully the province of certain religious orders and local veneration only.

3. The ancient tradition in the Office is to continue the Ferial Office per Annum on Ash Wednesday and the three days following. The proper Dominical and Ferial formularies for Lent become effective with first Vespers of the first Sunday at which time the Spring Volume of the Breviary starts. The tone for the hymns at the Hours and Compline remains Per Annum on the Feriae through Saturday, and beginning with Compline on Saturday night, is that of Lent.

4. On feast days of Semidouble and Double rite during Lent, where applicable, the Mass of the feast is celebrated after Terce and the Mass of the superseded Feria after None. When such occurs, neither is commemorated in the Mass of the other nor is the Proper Last Gospel utilized. When only Mass may be celebrated, the Mass is of the feast with commemoration and Proper Last Gospel of the Feria.

5. The Feriae of Lent, beginning with Ash Thursday, are major Feriae not privileged. Feast of Simple rite are reduced to commemorations at Vespers and Lauds within the Ferial (or Festal) Office as may be the case.

6. The Sundays of Lent are of Semidouble Rite and privileged. All feasts of Double rite occurring on any of these Sundays are transferred to the next available day; feasts of Semidouble and Simple rite are simply commemorated.

7. The Suffrages remain in effect on all days not of Double rite until Lauds of Sitientes Saturday inclusive.

8. The CTO does not mandate the Office of the Dead on the Mondays of Lent but proposes it as a worthy optional custom. There will be a future post on this at some point.

9. On all days of Lent, including feasts but excluding the day of Sunday itself, Vespers are sung before noon. This begins on Saturday with first Vespers of the first Sunday and continues until the short Paschal Vigil Vespers inclusive. The CTO favors this practice, not because of its origins to break the fast sooner as a concession to human weakness, but as our friend Rubricarius once stated - for its symbolic value as an inversion of time which will be restored with the Resurrection.

10. Folded chasubles replace the dalmatic and tunicle beginning on Ash Wednesday in Masses of the season except Laetare Sunday.
