Ordo for the fourth week of Lent (March 26-1 April)

For those saying Matins, you can find notes on where to find the texts and chants, as well as a translation of the readings and responsories here (note that where I publish more detailed notes on Matins on the Benedictine Matins blog, I will try and so so a week in advance so you have time to find and practice the chants).

If you are new to the Office, check out the more detailed notes on the Benedictine Office on this page.
