This Sunday is, of course, the feast of Pentecost, and in the traditional calendar, it comes with a first class octave, as befits its status as one of the big three (with Christmas and Easter) feasts of the liturgical year.

In the Ordinary Form, alas, the Octave is no more, and its back to Ordinary Time after Sunday.

This week in the traditional Benedictine Office
