Focusing on the Traditional Benedictine Office in accordance with the 1963 Benedictine calendar and rubrics, including the Farnborough edition of the Monastic Diurnal.
Terra:When I went to say Prime this morning, I realized I had some confusion.What Hymn, Chapter and Response should I have said? The ones for the feast day or the regular ones for Thursdays?I was especially confused because I saw that the Little Hours all have special ones for Ascension.I reviewed the tutorial, but still need clarity.As a beginner, I know now that I should have reviewed before the actual day; I’ll know better for next time!Thanks for your help!
At Prime, the only thing that ever changes on a feast is the antiphon, and for today that should have been aleluia etc.It is only Terce, Sext and None that have chapters etc for the day.Hmm, perhpas I need to spell out more in the Ordo note!
Thanks, Terra!It's probably just me having the confusion -- I have menopausal brain fog like you wouldn't believe!
Sorry tht isn't very clear - the normal alleluia should have been replaced by the antiphon for the feast, Viri Galilaei
And expat, I doubt you are alone on this!The important thing is to have the Ordo I put up on the site each week next to you, and when there is a major feast, have a quick flcik through the MD rubrics section in advance. The next biggie of course is Pentecost, but over these next few days, do watch out for the Ordinary of Ascensiontide!
