Finis

In 2013, inspired by a series of posts from TheRadTrad, we began this Ordo blog to showcase what a reform of the Roman Kalendar could have been had S. Pius X in 1911-13 followed the same general principles of his predecessor S. Pius V in 1568-1570. The number of newer saints' feasts to be added after 1570 would have been only very few, and among them there would be fewer still to have been accorded either universal observance or the rank of Duplex/Double or both in contrast to what actually occurred in the 350 or so years between the two pontificates. The Roman Psalter, the Canon of the Roman Breviary, would have both survived de jure and been restored to fuller usage de facto in this alternative history.

After over two years of providing weekly and daily Ordines, we feel that this project has been well demonstrated and had run its course. Also, the author of this Ordo now moves onto more concrete and time consuming restorations happening at the local level. Please continue to read TheRadTrad and the author's personal blog "Benedicamus Domino" for further discussions of all matters and restorations liturgical.

Valete!

P.S. This blog will remain active for anyone to continue to reference our proposed kalendar.

N.B. The CTO keeps six out of the 10 possible days on which the September Ember Days occur free from feasts of nine lessons, so that the Ember Days can have a fair amount of unhindered observance in any given year. Hence, we keep the Stigmata of S. Francis as a particular feast only. This contrasts with the kalendar as of 1910 and under Divino Afflatu wherein said Ember Days are always reduced to commemorations every year due to the uninterrupted string of feasts of nine lessons from 15-24 September.

* We downgraded S. Pius X from a Duplex to a Semiduplex; it had the former classification on our original Sanctorale. Aside from due, higher honour  given in the venerable (but liturgically misguided) organization whose patron he is, we do not think that SPX is so great a saint that his feast should ever be able to supersede a Sunday. Finally it does not escape our effort here that we accord universal dulia to a wreckovator of the Divine Office; rather, we observe his feast, replete with the Laudate Psalms, for his staunch condemnation of Modernism.

Ordo - Heb. infra et post Octavam Ascensionis MMXV

Ordo Recitandi pro Hebdomada infra et post Octavam Ascensionis
secundum usum Tridentinum Restauratum et Renovatum

Occurring Scripture at Mattins: Epistles of S. John, Jude, Philemon
Hymnody: Ascension melody and doxology

There is no Dominical or ferial Office from Ascension Thursday through Trinity Sunday inclusive. The Sunday within the Octave of the Ascension is not Dominical but a proper Festal Office of the Octave itself unlike Sundays per Annum which coincidentally occur within (but are not part of) an octave of the Sanctorale; hence the Quicumque is omitted at Prime. Noted here since this matter has been debated in the past.


All Preces and Suffragia are omitted until Trinity Sunday inclusive.

17. Sunday within the Octave of the Ascension, Semiduplex, White. Comm. of the Octave. Festal Office as on the feast (antiphons not doubled) except for what is given in the Proper for the Sunday. At Lauds, Comm. of the Octave. Prime, no Quicumque. At Mass (Proper), Gloria, Comm. of the Octave, Credo, Preface and Communicantes of the Ascension.

22. Friday after the Octave of the Ascension, Semiduplex, White. By special rubric, this one intervening day between the Octave of the Ascension and the Vigil tomorrow is accorded the rank and rite of the days within the preceding Octave when no feast of nine lessons occurs on it; there is no such thing as a "Ferial Office of Ascentiontide" in the pre-1960 books. Office and Mass as on the preceding Sunday except the proper lessons at Mattins. The proper Communicantes of the Ascension is not said today. II Vespers of the day, no Comms.
