Ordo for the Third Week after Pentecost

This week's Ordo is below.

Just a reminder of a few key points to enhance your understanding of the Office:

1.  The antiphon at I Vespers of Sunday (ie Saturday night) generally refers to the first Nocturn readings of Sunday Matins.  If you want to have a look at the text in advance, you can find the list of readings here.  This week for example, the Matins reading is from 1 Samuel 9-10 and covers Samuel's anointing of Saul as the first king of Israel.

2. The antiphons for Lauds and Vespers of Sunday normally refer to the Gospel for Sunday, which is also said at Matins in the Benedictine Office and is generally the same as that for the EF Mass.  The readings for Matins can generally be found on my lectio divina blog (they are scheduled to appear at 4pm Australian EST on Saturday, or the day before major feasts).

3.  The antiphons for feasts (where they are of the particular feast) typically refer to incidents in the saints' life, so it is worth checking the notes on the saints.  My past posts on the saints of June are a little thin, so I'll try and fill in gaps as we go this month.
