Traditional Benedictine Office - Ordo for the week after the Ascension (May 28 - June 3)

This week we are in Ascensiontide, and you can find notes on the Office in this period here.  For those saying Matins, you can find more detailed notes on where to find the texts and chants here.  And you can find the Matins readings each day (including those for the old Octave of the Ascension) over at Lectio Divina Notes

As usual, all page references are to the Farnborough edition of the Monastic Diurnal - if you are using an older edition or a different book, you will need to check the page headings!
