Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost/Third Sunday of November (Nov 11)

This Sunday we come to that strange period at the end of the liturgical year when we leave the sequence of Sundays after Pentecost and return to the 'after Epiphany' series, to make those Sundays that were cut off by Septuagint.

So although it is technically the 'Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost', in fact the canticle antiphons and collect are from the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany.

Similarly, at I Vespers of Sunday (ie Saturday), though it is technically the second Sunday of November, the correct texts to use are actually those labelled as for the third Sunday in November!
