* Ad libitum, feast of the Holy Family, duplex majus w/ Comms. of the Sunday, the Octave, and S. Hyginus. Neither the ninth lesson at Mattins nor the Last Gospel are taken from the commemorated Sunday since the pericopes are the same.

** Note that the pre-Sarto Breviary only lists five possible days within the Octave (numbered days 2-6 and corresponding to the days which are not the feast itself, the Sunday within, or the Octave Day) rather than affix them specifically to 7 January, 8 January, etc. as the Sarto version does. This means that on the Sunday, when the Octave is commemorated at Lauds and again at II Vespers, the antiphons for the octave are taken from the feast itself, whilst on Monday, though it be the seventh chronological day within the octave, the proper Bened. antiphon at Lauds is taken from the "sixth day" in the Proper. this having been leftover due to the intervening Sunday.

The lessons at Mattins, of course, are taken from I Corinthians beginning on Sunday, regardless of the placement of the proper Bened. & Magnif. antiphons.
