  1. Thank you for all that you do.

    I have a quick question on Suffrages. Do they ever change when they are prescribed or do they stay the same? For example, on DO, for Lauds on Sunday the Suffrages are of BVM, Holy Apostles, and Peace.

    Sorry if this is a naive question. I currently pray the Monastic Diurnal and the Psalter of St. Benedict inspires me to pray the Ancient Roman Psalter. I do not have a Breviary on me so "Trident 1570" is what I am working with for now!

    P.S: On Saturday Matins for June 19th (Sat. of BVM), DO only six Psalms. Either the Roman Church wanted Priests to have some time for recreation on Saturday or DO has it wrong!

  2. No Credo for St. John the Baptist? That seems like a typo, no?

    Thank you for your good work!

  3. Victimae - take DO with a grain of salt. Unfortunately, there are many errors on the site, some major, some minor, but it's good to have an actual book to reference in case of doubt. Just this past Saturday for the Office of the BVM, the antiphons given for the Little Hours were those of the Feria instead of the correct ones from the Common of the BVM. This was when using the Trent-1570 version. However, the capitula and short responsories were correct. There are numerous other examples like this that come up almost weekly.

    My normal practice is to use my actual breviary except when at work or away from home wherein it is easier to carry just a phone. This limits my need to rely on DO mostly to the diurnal Hours in which there is little variation anyway.

    As for your question, the Suffrages are the same all year, except during the Paschal season, at Lauds and Vespers, except that those of S. Joseph and Ss. Peter & Paul have respective different antiphons and verses for Lauds and Vespers. On Feriae per Annum., the Suffrage of the Cross is added before that of the BVM. In the Paschal season between Low Sunday and the Ascension, all Suffragia are replaced by Paschal Suffrage of the Cross (this is not the same as the per Annum Suffrage of the Cross).

  4. Matthew - Thank you. I've checked this a few times, and the Missal omits the Credo by special rubric on the Nativity of S. John the Baptist. Not sure why and I am open to correction if I've relied on faulty information.

  5. I believe you are actually correct; the Credo seems to have been added in with the 1962 Rite, but is traditionally not there. On another site I just read the rationale as being that it summarizes things which had not yet happened in St. John's time. A fascinating peculiarity, and I should have done my own homework earlier!
