Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost; Second Sunday of September

This Sunday is the Sixteenth after Pentecost, which displaces the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary this year.

As usual the Benedictus and Magnificat antiphons for Sunday refer to the Gospel for the EF Mass, this week St Luke 14:1-11; while the Magnificat antiphon for 1 Vespers (Saturday) refers to the first Nocturn readings for Matins, this week for the Second Sunday of September, which are from Job 9.

The Office this week in summary:

Sun 8 Sept Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Class II; Commemoration of the Nativity of the BVM
Mon 9 Sept Class IV; St Gorgonius, memorial
Tues 10 Sept Class IV
Wed 11 Sept Class IV; SS Protus and Hyacinth, Memorial
Thurs 12 Sept Class IV
