Mistake in the Diurnal? Vespers for the Exaltation of the Cross tells me to use antiphons from lauds together with psalms from Sunday as on P.212! However, P.212 is the start of the psalms for Monday's vespers. Is the page reference wrong or the stipulation of Sunday's psalms?

Please give yourself a nmae anon.

But yes, Sunday psalms not Monday should be used.
