I Vespers of the First Sunday of Lent: antiphons and psalms of Saturday, rest from MD 184* ff



The Ordinary of the Office in Lent (from the First Sunday in Lent up to Passion Sunday)

The Ordinary of the ferial Office in Lent is set out in the Farnborough edition of the Monastic Diurnal at MD 190* ff.

For those saying Matins (not in the Diurnal): the invitatory antiphon on weekdays is the same as throughout the year; the hymn is for the season of Lent and is the same each day (Ex more); the readings during the week are usually patristic, relating to the Gospel of the Mass set for that day; and the chapter verse for Nocturn II is for the season (Is 1:16-18).

At Lauds and Vespers: chapters, hymns, etc of the season replace those in the psalter section; the canticle antiphons are proper for each day; and each day there are two sets of collects: the first for use from Matins to None; the second for Vespers.

During Lent, third class feasts are generally reduced to commemorations only.  In the case of Class I & II feasts, where the feast displaces the Lent texts, a commemoration of the day is made at both Lauds and Vespers using the respective collects, canticle antiphon and versicle that occurs before the relevant canticle at that hour.
