Notes:

1. The CTO adds the feasts of S. Patrick (17 March) and S. Cyril of Jerusalem (18 March) to 1568/1570 Kalendar this week. The former as a Duplex feast because of universal cult and the latter with the minimum Semiduplex rank for a Doctor of the Church. By Doctor, we here mean the traditional designation reserved to a male and designated as such prior to 1962.

2. The week is quite festal and fittingly extends the Laetare Sunday reprieve over the brutal ferial Office of Lent. Enjoy some sfingi and zeppole on S. Joseph's Day!
