First Week after Pentecost

Trinity Sunday marks the return to 'ordinary time' as the (very) Ordinary Form calendar likes to call it, which means all those Paschaltide alleluias drop out of the Office, and the Marian antiphon at Compline changes to Salve Regina. For those using the monastic breviary, it is time to change volumes!

 Note that the collect of the week is for the First Week after Pentecost, not Trinity Sunday.
