Ordo for the twentieth week after Pentecost (Oct 7-13)

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).

They provides notes on the variable parts of the Office only, so should be read in conjunction with the Learn to Say the Benedictine Office notes provided elsewhere on the blog.  The collect listed for the day is used at Matins and Lauds, and from Terce to Vespers only.

The Matins readings for the Sunday, and for Our Lady on Saturday will be posted on the Lectio Divina Notes Blog.

Note that at Matins and Lauds the hymns for Sunday change to Primo dierum and Aeterne Rerum Conditor respectively from this week.

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.
