Terra, I've just started using the Farnborough MD, and have been through the various instructions you've provided. My learning style is such that I would benefit immensely from a walk-through of the readings and order thereof for one of the days this week. E.g., start with x, p., then to y, p. *, on to z, page [], etc. (I don't think I'm doing it all or doing it correctly).

Would you mind providing something like that for one day, say for prime and for vespers, please?

Thanks in advance and many blessings for what you're doing here!

Dear Dom Cingoranelli - Have you looked at the 'Quick start daily cheat sheets' (under 7 on the learn to say the Office page)? Here is a link to the one for Thursday:

Won't work for this week as we are saying the Sunday Office during the octave, but otherwise should do what you are looking for I think.

Okay, thanks, Katie. This is helpful and confirms what I thought you'd indicated in the ordo you sent out via e-mail about things being the same as Easter Sunday this week. :-)

God bless,

Dom

I have question regarding utilizing the Sunday Octave for this week. Does that mean that we utilize the parts of Psalm 118 during the Minor Hours for the whole week or do we use the Gradual Psalms as usual from Tuesday to Saturday? Also, are there hymns in the Hours because the hymns are suppressed in the 1962 Roman Office.

Kate Edwards said...

Yes Psalm 118 from Sunday is used throughout the week at the little hours, and yes the hymns are used as usual. The Benedictine Octave is a bit of a hybrid between the original Benedictine specifications (office as usual) and the Roman. It is even weirder at Matins where part way through the week the Office reverts to the normal daily psalms.

Thanks! I was doing it all wrong but hopefully I will make amends with the small amount of time I have left regarding this year's Octave.
