Ordo - Heb. I Novembris, MMXIV

Hebdomada: Week I of November, XXI after Pentecost

N.B. The Suffrages at Vespers and Lauds, and the Preces at Compline and Prime are omitted every day this week due to the Octave of All Saints. Unless otherwise stated, all hymns retain the Per Annum doxologies and are sung in the Ordinary tones throughout the Octave.

Sunday, 2 November - XXI Sunday after Pentecost, Semiduplex, White (ratione Octavae). Dominical Office per Annum. Comm. Octave of All Saints. At Mattins, Te Deum. At Lauds, Comm. of the Octave. At Prime, Pss. 53, 117, 118.1, 118.2 & Quicumque. At Mass, Gloria, Comm. of the Octave, Credo, Preface of the Holy Trinity. II Vespers of the Sunday, Comm. of the following day within the Octave; after Benedicamus Domino, Fidelium is omitted, and immediately Vespers of the Dead are sung (Collect for all the Faithful Departed). Compline may either be the normative form from the Psalter or ad libitum the Proper Compline of the Dead from 1911 (but w/ the standard Compline psalms).

Monday, 3 November - Within the Octave of All Saints, Semiduplex, White and Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed, Duplex, Black (transferred from 2 November). Office and Mass as on the feast except for proper lessons at Mattins. After the Benedicamus Domino at Lauds, Fidelium is omitted, and immediately are sung Mattins (all three nocturnes with the 1911 proper lessons for All Souls' Day) and Lauds of the Dead (Collect for all the Faithful Departed). Today, in accordance with Benedict XV's decree, three Masses (with differing proper readings) for the Dead may be offered (after None). The CTO also concedes ad libitum the proper 1911 Office of the Dead for the Little Hours, but w/ Pss. 53 and the divisiones of Ps. 118, in place of the Office of the day. Vespers of the following day, Comms. of the Octave and of S. Vitalis.

Tuesday, 4 November - S. Charles Borromeo, BC, Semiduplex, White. Comms. of the Octave and S. Vitalis, M. Office from the Common of Bishop Confessors and the Pproper. At Mattins, lesson IX of S. Vitalis, Te Deum. At Lauds, Comms. of the Octave and S. Vitalis. At Mass, Gloria, Comms. of the Octave and S. Vitalis, Credo ratione Octavae, Common Preface. II Vespers of the feast, Comm. of the following day within the Octave.

Wednesday, 5 November - Within the Octave, Semiduplex, White. Office and Mass as on the feast except for proper lessons at Mattins. At Mass, 2nd. orations of the Holy Ghost, 3rd. orations Against the Enemies of the Church or pro Papa. II Vespers of the Octave.

Thursday, 6 November - Within the Octave, Semiduplex, White. Office and Mass as on the feast except for proper lessons at Mattins. At Mass, common commemorations as on Wednesday. II Vespers of the Octave.

Thursday, 7 November - Within the Octave, Semiduplex, White. Office and Mass as on the feast except for proper lessons at Mattins. At Mass, common commemorations as on Wednesday. Vespers of the following Octave Day, Comm. Four Crowned Martyrs.

Saturday, 8 November - Octave Day of All Saints, Duplex Majus, White. Comm. Four Crowned Martyrs. At Mattins, lessons proper, lesson IX of the Martyrs, Te Deum. At Lauds, Comm. Martyrs. At Mass, same as on the feast, Comm. Martyrs. Vespers of the following feast of the Dedication of the Archbasilica of S. Saviour (S. John Lateran), Comms. of the Octave Day and the following XXII Sunday after Pentecost. At Compline, Te lucis sung in the solemn melody.


We hope that by retaining the integral Tridentine Office for all days within the Octave while allowing ad libitum the full Office of the Dead (modified from the 1911 texts) on All Souls' Day that we have resolved the dispute from last year. Mr. Gregory DiPippo of the New Liturgical Movement, tells me in personal correspondence that some religious orders had developed their own integral Requiem Offices for All Souls well before 1911, though they retained the fixed Pss. 53 and 118 for the Hours and Pss. 4, 90, and 133 for Compline rather than proper psalms akin to the Pian construction; hence there is some precedent for an integral Office, though perhaps as an addition to and not a substitute for the Office of the day within the Octave. Owing to life constraints, we propose allowing for substitution.

This is one of my favourite weeks liturgically - two major feasts bookending a ferial/vigiltide with a rest stop in the middle. Not quite the Triduum effect when Christ the King falls on 31 October, but still a rich liturgical pattern.
