Second week of Lent**updated

Cologne, circa 1025-1050
This Sunday's Gospel is on the Transfiguration, from St Matthew 17:1-9.  You can find it and the Matins readings on it here.

This week in the 1962 Benedictine Office

This is something of a red-letter week depending on whether or not you a Benedictine Oblate, and where you live, since there are potentially three Solemnities celebrated this week in addition ot the Sunday, which means you get a 'get out of Lent free' card (ie there is no obligation to do penance on these days).

Sunday March 16  – Second Sunday of Lent, Class I
Monday March 17 – Monday in the second week of Lent, Class III [***in some places, St Patrick, Class I]
Tuesday March 18 – Tuesday in the second week of Lent, Class III; St Cyril, Memorial
Wednesday March 19 – St Joseph, Class I
Thursday March 20 – Thursday in the second week of Lent, Class III [**in some places, St Cuthbert, memorial]
Friday March 21 – St Benedict, Class I 
Saturday March 22 – Saturday in the second week of Lent, Class III [**in some places, St Nicolas of Flue, memorial]
