Ordo for the second week after Pentecost (June 3-9, 2018)

The notes below are designed to assist those wishing to say the Benedictine Office according to the officially approved 1962 books (noting that older books can readily be adapted to this end).

Time after Pentecost

The texts for the Ordinary of the Office for time throughout the year are set out in the psalter section of the Diurnal.

The key feast this week is that of the Sacred Heart on Friday.

Key to the abbreviations:

MD= Monastic Diurnal (MD, 2004 onwards editions)
AM =Antiphonale Monasticum 1934 (1995 edition).
LR=Liber Responsorialis (downloadable from CC Watershed) and the Nocturnale Romanum.
