August in liturgical time

August is 'time throughout the year', and the collect each day is that of the previous Sunday, unless it is a third class feast or higher.

At I Vespers on Saturday, the Magnificat antiphon is for the appropriate week of August (as noted in the Ordo below) and the Collect of the following Sunday.
