October 9: Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost/Second Sunday of October/28th of Ordinary Time



The first Nocturn readings at Matins are from I Maccabees.

The Gospel this Sunday in the Extraordinary Form (and 1962 Office), to which the canticle antiphons refer, is Matthew 22: 34-46, when the Pharisees ask Our Lord which is the greatest commandment, and he replies with the exhortation to love the Lord with all your heart, mind and soul, and goes on to give a short exposition of the Christological meaning of Psalm 110, said at Sunday Vespers.

In the Ordinary Form, the Gospel is St Matthew 22:1-14, the man invited to the wedding who comes without the proper garment.
