Ordo for the Second Week of Advent

This post provides the ordo for the second week of Advent.  You may also wish to consult my more detailed notes on saying the Office in Advent.  I've also placed a PDF of the structure of the Office during Advent guide I posted a few days ago in the BenOfficeHelp Yahoo Group.

In addition, for those who want to say Matins, or would like to use the readings for lectio divina purposes, I've put them up over at my Lectio Divina Notes blog.  I will add a list of the daily readings for this week in due course.
