On-Line Scripture Texts

The texts of the scripture readings of the current day may always be obtained from the website of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops:

http://www.usccb.org/nab/today.shtml

Alternatively, one may obtain specific texts by going to

http://bible.oremus.org

At the latter site, one can request a passage directly in this manner:

http://bible.oremus.org/?Mt 5:1-11

Another site giving the liturgical reading for each day of the year may be found at

http://www.servicioskoinonia.org/BiblicalLiturgicalCalendar/

Note that this last site makes use of the Latin American liturgical calendar (with local Latin American feasts).



Editing of this Electronic Ordo

This electronic document is a first attempt to provide a perpetual on-line equivalent to the traditional printed Ordo. Any computer program only does what it is told to do -- mistakes that exist are result of the human error of the programmer.

In adapting a work created by the efforts of Dominican Father Martin Wallace of Australia, errors may have been introduced in my attempts to remove celebrations proper to the Dominicans and to Australia and to introduce celebrations proper to the Society of Jesus and to the United States of America and to Canada. I would hope and pray that such errors be quickly brought to my attention for correction.

Purpose of this Ordo

A Jesuit, particularly if travelling, has to contend with several national calendars, as well as local ones and the calendar of the Society.

This Ordo aims to give simple directions for Jesuits in the U.S. in the dioceses in which the Society has canonical houses. Jesuits ministering in other dioceses will still need to consult local calendars.

As well as the General Roman Calendar and the Calendar of the Society, local celebrations such as the anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral and principal local patrons have been included where they are known.

Also included are liturgical directives or advice, drawn from the liturgical books of the Roman Rite, and the documents of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, including the 2002 General Instruction of the Roman Missal. These indications are included to draw attention to easily neglected or misunderstood provisions. They are not complete, nor do they always refer to the most important aspects of liturgy. Recourse should always be had to the original documents.

Since this is the first attempt in the U.S. to produce such an Ordo, some matters have been overlooked. Please do not hesitate to bring errors or omissions to the editor's notice. He would be particular grateful for further information regarding local calendars in various dioceses in the U.S.




INTRODUCTION

This Liturgical Calendar follows the Roman Calendar and the proper Calendar of the Society of Jesus, adapted for use in the United States of America and Canada by the inclusion of celebrations proper to the Society and celebrations proper to the U.S. and to Canada.

Local celebrations (titular feasts, diocesan patrons, anniversaries of dedication etc.) are shown for those places where the Society in the U.S. has houses. Those working or living in other places need to consult local calendars for local variations.

I. The Calendar:

Certain celebrations [e.g., Christmas, Pentecost and Assumption] have proper Vigil Masses in addition to the Mass for the day itself. These Vigil Masses (with their proper readings) are intended to be used either before or after Evening Prayer I of the celebration.

On Saturdays in Ordinary Time when there is no obligatory memorial, an optional memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary is permitted. Whenever this optional memorial is allowed, a Mass from the Collection of Masses in Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary may be used as an alternative.

II. Holy Days of Obligation:

In the U.S., in addition to all Sundays, the following are observed as Holy Days of Obligation (except in Hawai`i):

  • Jan 1, Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (not of obligation when it falls on a Monday or Saturday, not of obligation in the metropolitan province of Los Angeles [Southern California]);
  • Aug 15, Assumption of Mary (not of obligation when it falls on a Monday or Saturday);
  • Nov 1, All Saints (not of obligation when it falls on a Monday or Saturday);
  • Dec 8, Immaculate Conception (Patronal Feast of the U.S.) (when Dec 8 falls on a Sunday, the observance is transferred to Monday, Dec 9, but the obligation is not transferred);
  • Dec 25, Christmas, the Nativity of the Lord.
In Hawai`i, following the policies of the Conference of Bishops of the South Pacific,only Dec 8 and Dec 25 are retained as Holy Days of Obligation.
The Solemnity of the Ascension is celebrated on the Seventh Sunday of Easter, except in the east coast ecclesiastical provinces of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, and Philadelphia, and in the state of Nebraska. In these areas, it is observed on the Thursday between the Sixth and Seventh Sundays of Easter and is a Holy Day of Obligation.

In Canada, in addition to all Sundays, the following are observed as Holy Days of Obligation:

  • Jan 1, Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God;
  • Dec 25, Christmas, the Nativity of the Lord.

III. Patronal Feasts:

In addition to the celebrations proper to U.S. and Canada, the Society, and the state, every religious community should celebrate the following (GNLYC 52c):

  • Solemnity of the anniversary of the Dedication of the church on the anniversary day of the dedication, if the church was consecrated. If the day of dedication is unknown, this solemnity is usually celebrated on October 25 or on the Sunday of Ordinary Time before November 1 (cf. Notitiae, v. 8 (1972), p. 103; Doc. on Lit., 3818, footnote R10);
  • Solemnity of the titular saint of the church;
  • Solemnity of the principal patron of their house;
  • Feast of the anniversary of the Dedication of the Cathedral;
  • Feast of the principal patron of the diocese, or more extensive territory.
Other local celebrations (e.g., diocesan secondary patrons, other diocesan saints) have been included to help Jesuits join in prayer with the local Church.

IV. Typography of this Calendar:

A. Italics: indicate an element of the liturgy of the day which is optional, e.g., sequence; or indicate an Optional Memorial, e.g., Dec 4, St John Damascene. They are also used for words in other languages, e.g. Te Deum.

B. Explanatory material is set in smaller type.

C. The letters SJ in the margin indicate a celebration or rubrical directions proper to the Society.

E. Notes regarding day of specially offered Masses by Jesuits appear like this.

F. Special commemorations appear like this.

G. Celebration proper to Canada appear like and/or with the notation [Canada].

V. Abbreviations used in the Daily Ordo:

  • Mass ad lib.. This is a reminder to the celebrant that on weekdays of Ordinary Time there is a choice of Masses that may be used (cf. 2002 GIRM 355):
    1. any of the Masses for Sundays in Ordinary Time;
    2. an optional memorial assigned to that date;
    3. a Saint whose is listed for that date in the Martyrology (thus permitting the use of texts for Jesuit Saints/Blessed in a non-Jesuit church);
    4. a votive Mass or Masses (or Prayers) for various needs and occcasions;
    5. the "daily" Mass for the Dead (in moderation), provided the Mass is being offered specifically for one or more deceased (cf. 2002 GIRM 355, 381).
    Appropriate readings may be chosen from the Lectionary.
    On weekdays of Ordinary Time, the Liturgy of the Hours uses the seasonal texts or the texts of the optional memorial chosen for the Mass.
  • pref = preface
  • prop = proper. NOTE: When "proper" is noted for a reading on a memorial, that reading is to be chosen over the seasonal reading (cf. 2002 GIRM 358).
  • 2002 RM = 2002 (3rd ed.) Roman Missal [NOTE: "[2002 RM]" or "[post-2002 RM]" is used to note celebrations included in the most recent edition of the Roman Missal (or added afterwards), but which are not found in the previous English translations of the Sacramentary or Lectionary. Such celebrations would also not be found in the Liturgy of the Hours; those praying the major hours should use prayers chosen from the Commons.]
  • [SJ] = indicates a celebration listed on the proper calendar of the Society of Jesus.
  • [USA] = indicates a celebration listed on the proper calendar for the Dioceses of the United States.
  • [Canada] = indicates a celebration listed on the proper calendar for the Dioceses of Canada.

NOTE: The general norms for celebrating a Mass other than what is indicated by the calendar are given in 2002 GIRM 352-385.
To summarize:

  • On Solemnities of obligation, Sundays of Advent, Lent, and Easter, Holy Thursday and the Easter Triduum, no ritual Masses (including Nuptial Masses), Funeral Masses, or other Masses for various needs (and votive Masses) are permitted. (2002 GIRM 372, 380)
  • On other Solemnities, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, the Octave of Easter, and All Souls, Funeral Masses are permitted; however, ritual Masses (including Nuptial Masses) and other Masses for various needs (and votive Masses) are NOT permitted. (2002 GIRM 372, 380)
  • Only with the permission of the local Bishop may Masses for various needs (and votive Masses) be celebrated on Sundays of Christmas or Ordinary Times, on Feasts, during Dec 17-24 or the Christmas Octave, during weekdays of Lent. (2002 GIRM 354, 374, 376)
The table at the following link summarizes on which days Ritual Masses (e.g., Nuptial Masses), Masses for Various Needs, and Votive Masses may be celebrated.

VI. Other Abbreviations used in this Calendar:

  • DPPL : Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy, Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (2001)
  • GILH = General Instruction of the Liturgy of the Hours (1971)
  • GIRM = General Instruction of the Roman Missal (2002)
  • HCWEOM = Holy Communion and Worship of the Eucharist Outside of Mass (1973)
  • PS = Paschale Sollemnitatis (Circular Letter Concerning the Preparation and Celebration of the Easter Feasts), Congregation for Divine Worship & Discipline of the Sacraments, 16 January 1988
  • RC or GNLYC = Roman Calendar or General Norms for the Liturgical Year and Calendar (1969; as amended)
  • RCIA = Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (1972)

VII. Note on Evening Prayer:

On Mondays through Fridays that are seasonal weekdays and on memorials, Evening Prayer (Vespers) of the Liturgy of the Hours is normally taken from the office of the day. (Special rules hold for the Octaves of Christmas and Easter.) This principle also usually holds on Sundays, Solemnities and Feasts.
Since the liturgical day of Sundays and Solemnities starts the prior evening, on Saturdays and on days before Solemnities, Evening Prayer is usually of the following Sunday or Solemnity.
Confusion may arise when a solemnity (or Feast of the Lord) occurs back to back with another solemnity or Sunday. In such cases, Evening Prayer celebrated between the two celebrations should be of the higher ranking celebration (as found in the Table of Liturgical Celebrations [found at the beginning of the Roman Missal or Vol. 1 of the Liturgy of the Hours]) (cf. GNLYC, 61).
In general, Sundays of Advent, Lent, and Easter rank above Solemnities (resulting in the transferrence of occuring Solemnities), and Solemnities rank above Feasts of the Lord which rank above Sundays of the Christmas Season and of Ordinary Time (resulting in the omission of the feast or Sunday celebration). In those few cases in a typical year when such conflicts arise (sometimes due to Solemnities which have been transferred), one is advised to consult a printed Ordo.
Night Prayer (Compline) always should be chosen as is appropriate for the Evening Prayer celebrated earlier that day.

SEASON OF LENT
Lent is a penitential season of prayer, fasting and almsgiving in preparation for Easter.
Catholics over the age of reason are required to receive Holy Communion at least once a year (CIC 920 #1), normally during the Easter season (CIC 920 #2). In the United States, this has been extended to between the First Sunday of Lent and Trinity Sunday.
During Lent Alleluia is always omitted at Mass and Office (even on solemnities and feasts) and hymns containing Alleluia are not used. The Gloria and Te Deum are included only on solemnities and feasts. The organ is used only to sustain singing, and floral decoration is not permitted (except on solemnities and on Laetare Sunday.) PS 25.
The weekdays of Lent are privileged, so any memorial is considered to be optional. If it is commemorated, at Mass the opening prayer of the memorial is used in place of the seasonal text. At the Office of Readings, after the weekday readings, one may add the Hagiographical Reading of the memorial, the responsory and the concluding prayer. At Morning and Evening Prayer, the prayer of the saint may be added (with its antiphon) after the prayer of the day (omitting the conclusion). (cf. Gen. Intro. Lit. Hours, 238-39.)
The Prayer over the People at the end of Mass is recommended on weekdays.
The use of the Eucharistic Prayers for Reconciliation is particularly appropriate during Lent. They may be used with one of the Lenten prefaces (2002 RM, Appendix).
 
N.B. Penitential practices during Lent:
  • According to Church Law, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are observed as days of fast and abstinence (CIC 1251). In the United States, all the Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence. Abstinence is to be observed by all over the age of 14 (CIC 1252). Those between ages of 18 (CIC 97 #1) and 59 [inclusive] (CIC 1252) are bound by the law of fast.
  • If it seems appropriate, on Ash Wednesday or on other days during Lent, some communal penitential celebration or "rite of reconciliation" may be held, whether sacramental or non-sacramental (according to the spirit of the Rite of Penance, nn.36 - 37). This celebration may not immediately precede or be incorporated into Mass.
  • On Ash Wednesday, after the sign of the cross and greeting, the Penitential Rite is omitted at Mass. In its place, the Blessing and Imposition of Ashes takes place in all Masses after the homily. If necessary, the Imposition of Ashes may take place apart from Mass within the Liturgy of the Word.

 (Switch to Vol. 2 of the Lit. of the Hours.)
Hours of Ash Wednesday; Psalter Week IV today and until Saturday.
Today at Morning Prayer, the psalms of Friday, Week III may be used.
 The celebrant blesses and distributes ashes after the homily.
Other persons may be associated with the bishop or priest in the imposition of ashes, e.g., deacons, special ministers of communion and other lay persons, when there is true pastoral need.
Special ministers of communion and deacons may bring blessed ashes to the sick and those confined to their homes. If a minister is not available, a member of the family or another person may bring the blessed ashes to a shut-in, using one of the formulas in the Roman Missal to impose ashes.
For pastoral reasons the blessing and distribution of ashes may take place outside Mass. In this case, the entire liturgy of the word should be celebrated: entrance song, opening prayer, readings and chants, homily, blessing and distribution of ashes, and general intercessions. See the Book of Blessings, nos. 1656ff.

The Commemoration of the Lord's Entrance may take one of three forms, as described in the Missal: Blessing and Procession, Solemn Entrance, or Simple Entrance. The processional cross should be suitably decorated. The blessing of palms may not be celebrated without the following procession and Mass. The blessing and solemn entrance, but not the procession, may be celebrated at a second Mass if many of the faithful are present.
The Passion may be read by three deacons, or lay readers with the priest taking the part of Christ, without candles, incense, greeting, signs of the cross or acclamation. At the mention of the Lord's death, all pause and kneel. Where pastoral reasons require it, one or both of the readings before the Passion may be omitted.
At the end of the Passion, The Gospel of the Lord, is said, but the book is not kissed.
Blessed palms remaining are kept, to be burnt for next year's ashes.

violetThursday of Holy Week
The Chrism Mass may be celebrated in the morning, or on another day earlier this week. White vestments are worn. It is especially fitting that priests concelebrate with the bishop. Priests may communicate under both species, even if not concelebrating.
Apart from the Chrism Mass and the Mass of the Last Supper, all other Masses are prohibited, unless the Ordinary permits a second Mass, exclusively for those unable to participate in the Evening Mass. "According to the Church's ancient tradition, all Masses without a congregation are prohibited on this day" (Rubric, Holy Thursday, RM). Communion may be taken to the sick at any time, but otherwise may be distributed only during Mass. Funerals can only be celebrated without Mass.
Hours of the day. At Office of Readings, the psalms and antiphons of Friday, Week III, may be used.
Today or on another day of this week, some communal penitential celebration or "rite of reconciliation" may be held, whether it be sacramental or non-sacramental (according to the spirit of the Rite of Penance, nn. 36-37). However, this celebration may not immediately precede or be incorporated into Mass.
THE SACRED PASCHAL TRIDUUM
  1. The Sacred Paschal Triduum of the passion and resurrection of Christ is the culmination of the entire liturgical year. (RC, n.18)
  2. The Paschal Triduum begins with the Mass of the Lord's Supper, reaches its high point in the Easter Vigil, and closes with Evening Prayer on Easter Sunday. (RC, n.19)
  3. Religious communities and other smaller communities are encouraged to join with a larger community to celebrate the liturgical services in common (PS no. 43), with a full complement of ministers and with song, rather than schedule separate celebrations (cf. PS no. 93).
  4. During these days it is desirable that brothers and sisters "who experience the mystery of suffering" should share in and be participants in the liturgical celebrations of the community, especially if they are in the hospital, "that they may be helped to know the meaning of this reality which they live in union with the paschal mystery of Christ."
  5. Therefore, keeping in mind their varying conditions and different circumstances, everything should be so arranged that in the most suitable manner the sick may have the possibility of receiving Communion and, if possible, participating in the veneration of the Cross on Good Friday.

Mass of the Lord's Supper. Gloria, Preface of Eucharist I, special Communicantes, Hanc Igitur and Qui pridie in Eucharistic Prayer I.
Readings:
[39] Exod 12:1-8, 11-14;  Ps 116:12-13, 15-16, 17-18;  1 Cor 11:23-26;  John 13:1-15
The tabernacle should be completely empty before the celebration. Enough hosts for the communion of the faithful for tonight and tomorrow should be consecrated during that celebration. For the reservation of the Blessed Sacrament, a place should be prepared and adorned. When the tabernacle is in a chapel separated from the central part of the church, it is appropriate to prepare the place of repose and adoration there. [PS 49]
All priests may concelebrate the Mass, even if they have concelebrated the Chrism Mass in the morning. Bells may be rung during the Gloria, and are silent thereafter.
The mandatum - the washing of the feet - may take place after the homily.
Gifts for the poor, especially those collected during Lent as the fruit of penance, may be presented in the offertory procession while the people sing Ubi caritas. [PS 52]
After the Prayer After Communion, the greeting, blessing and dismissal are omitted. The celebrant incenses the Blessed Sacrament three times, receives the humeral veil and the procession follows as in the Missal. The cross-bearer goes first, [PS 54], then the Blessed Sacrament accompanied by torches and incense.
The faithful are encouraged, after the Mass of the Lord's Supper, to spend a suitable period of time during the night in the church in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament that has been solemnly reserved. Solemn adoration ends at midnight; the Blessed Sacrament remains at the Place of Repose until the Liturgical Action of Good Friday.
After the celebration, the altar is stripped without ceremony and crosses are removed, if possible; otherwise they should be veiled.
It is appropriate that holy water be removed from the stoups at the entrances of the church, to be replaced after new water is blessed at the Easter Vigil.
Evening prayer is not celebrated by participants in the Mass of the Lord's Supper.
Anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II (2005).
Apr 3 Friday
redFRIDAY OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD [GOOD FRIDAY]
Day of fast and abstinence. Celebration of the Mass and the sacraments is strictly prohibited, except for Penance and Anointing of the Sick. Communion may be taken to the sick, but otherwise is not distributed outside today's Celebration of the Lord's Passion.
Hours of the day. The Office of Readings and Morning Prayer are recommended for public celebration in parishes.
Celebration of the Passion of the Lord.
The celebration has three parts:
I. Liturgy of the Word (readings, homily, intercessions)
II. Veneration of the Cross
III. Holy Communion.
The celebration begins about 3 p.m.
The altar is completely bare, without candles, cloth or cross. The ministers vest with red Mass vestments. They enter in silence and prostrate before the altar. This act of prostration, which is proper to the rite of the day, should be observed (whenever the ministers are physical able) for it signifies both the abasement of "earthly man," and also the grief and sorrow of the Church. As the ministers enter, the faithful should be standing, and thereafter should kneel in silent prayer. [PS 65]
The Passion is proclaimed as on Palm Sunday.
Readings:
[40] Isa 52:13-53:12; Ps 31:2+6, 12-13, 15-16, 17+25; Heb 4:14-16; 5:7-9; John 18:1-19:42.
The Intercessions must follow "the form and wording" handed down by tradition, but the celebrant may make a selection of some more relevant to local conditions, provided the range of intentions is preserved. [PS 67]
The cross is presented to each of the faithful individually for their adoration, since the personal adoration of the cross is a most important feature in this celebration. The celebrant may remove his chasuble and shoes for the veneration. Only if necessitated by the large numbers of faithful present may the rite of veneration be made simultaneously by all present. Only one cross should be used for the veneration. [PS 69]
The communion rite is as described in the Missal. There is no sign of peace.
After Holy Communion, the Blessed Sacrament is carried from the church by a priest or deacon wearing a humeral veil and accompanied by two candles. The Sacrament is reserved privately outside the church for the needs of the sick and dying.
The altar is stripped at a suitable time, but the cross remains with four candles, placed so that the faithful may venerate and kiss it and spend some time in meditation. [PS 71]
Evening Prayer is not said by participants in the afternoon liturgy. Night Prayer is said after the Celebration of the Lord's Passion at a suitable hour, with the special verse in place of the responsory.
Today after the Veneration of the Cross, all genuflect toward the cross when passing it.
Apr 4 Saturday
violetHOLY SATURDAY
The Paschal Fast is observed if possible. [CR 20] Celebration of the Mass and the sacraments is strictly prohibited, except for Penance and Anointing of the Sick. Communion may be given only as viaticum.
Hours of the day. The Office of Readings and Morning Prayer in public is recommended.
Night Prayer is celebrated only by those not present at the Vigil.
Preparation for the Vigil includes: preparation of the bonfire; candles for all the faithful present; water for the liturgy of Baptism; flowers and decorations for the altar.
EASTER TIME
whiteThe Easter Vigil.
The celebration should truly have the character of a Vigil. It must take place at night. It should not begin before nightfall and should end before dawn. To start earlier (e.g. at the customary time for a Sunday vigil Mass) is a "reprehensible abuse". [PS 78]
The Vigil has four parts:
I.    Service of Light : Bonfire, Procession with Candle, Exsultet.
II.   Liturgy of the Word : Readings, psalms, prayers, Gloria, homily.
III.  Liturgy of Baptism : Litany, Blessing of Water, Baptism and/or Confirmation, Renewal of Promises, Prayer of the Faithful.
IV.  Liturgy of the Eucharist : Preface of Easter I ("on this night"), special Communicantes and Hanc igitur; double alleluia at dismissal.
This liturgical order must not be changed by anyone on his own initiative. [PS 81]
Wherever possible, all the readings should be read so that the character of the Easter Vigil, which demands that it be somewhat prolonged, be respected at all costs. Where pastoral conditions require that the number of readings be reduced, there should be at least three readings from the Old Testament, taken from the law and the prophets; and the reading from Exodus (ch. 14) with its canticle, must never be omitted.
The Readings [41]:
  1. Gen 1:1-2:2 or 1:1, 26-31a with Ps 104:1-2, 5-6, 10+12, 13-14, 24+35 or Ps 33:4-5, 6-7, 12-13, 20-22
  2. Gen 22:1-18 or 22:1-2, 9a,10-13, 15-18 with Ps 16:5+8, 9-10, 11
  3. Exod 14:15-15:1 with Exod 15:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 17-18 This reading and psalm are obligatory.
  4. Isa 54:5-14 with Ps 30:2+4, 5-6, 11-12a+13b
  5. Isa 55:1-11 with Isa 12:2-3, 4, 5-6
  6. Bar 3:9-15, 32-4:4 with Ps 19:8, 9, 10, 11
  7. Ezek 36:16-17a, 18-28 with Ps 42:3, 5; 43:3, 4 (when baptisms occur) or (when no baptisms) Isa 12:2-3, 4bcd, 5-6 or Ps 51:12-13, 14-15, 18-19
  8. Epistle: Rom 6:3-11
  9. Alleluia Psalm: Ps 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23
  10. Gospel: Mark 16:1-7
Bells are to be rung during the Gloria, and the altar candles lit.
The celebrant -- or, in case of necessity, a cantor -- intones the triple alleluia before the Gospel. The gospel is honored with incense, but candles are not carried.
For the texts of the rites of Baptism and Confirmation, see the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
The dismissal with double alleluia is used tonight and throughout the octave.
Apr 5 Sunday
whiteEaster Sunday - the Pasch of the LordSolemnity with Octave
Mass of the day, Gloria, Easter sequence, Renewal of Baptismal Promises (in place of Creed), Preface of Easter I ("on this Easter day") special Communicantes and Hanc igitur; double alleluia at dismissal.
 Readings:
[42] Acts 10:34a, 37-43; Ps 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23; Col 3:1-4 or 1 Cor 5:6b-8; John 20:1-9.
Alternative gospel (from the Vigil): [41] Mark 16:1-7
At an evening Mass, Luke 24: 13-35 (Lect. [46]) may be used.
Mass is to be celebrated on with great solemnity. In place of the Creed on this day, the renewal of baptismal promises takes place (as at the Vigil) and the people are sprinkled with water blessed at the Vigil, during which a song of baptismal character should be sung. The entrance stoups to the church should also be filled with the same water. [PS 97]
The Paschal Candle burns at all Hours and Masses today. It is kept in the sanctuary near the altar or ambo until Pentecost Sunday. [PS 99]
Hours of Easter Sunday.
The Easter Vigil takes the place of the Office of Readings.
Where it is the custom, the tradition of "Baptismal Vespers" with a procession to the font is to be diligently observed. (IGLH, 213) It is most appropriate to conclude Night Prayer throughout the Easter Season with the Regina Coeli (IGLH, 92).
After Night Prayer the paschal candle is extinguished. It remains by the ambo or altar, and is lit throughout the Easter season at Mass and at other celebrations until Pentecost inclusive.
During the Octave, a Funeral Mass is permitted, but Ritual Masses (including Nuptial Masses) are prohibited, and all solemnities are delayed until after the Second Sunday of Easter.

It is fitting to hold a procession after Mass, or after a protracted, public adoration following the Mass. The Sacred Host, which should be consecrated during that Mass, is placed in the monstrance on the altar after the Communion of the faithful. Then, after the Prayer after Communion, omitting the usual Concluding Rites of the Mass, the Blessed Sacrament may be carried in procession, even outside the church, according to local customs. The solemn blessing with the Blessed Sacrament concludes the entire celebration: the usual blessing by the priest is replaced by the blessing with the Blessed Sacrament.

The weekday readings for the eight days before Christmas are proper to each day, except on the Fourth Sunday of Advent. On the Fourth Sunday of Advent, the weekday readings for that date are omitted, "but they may be anticipated or used later on another day during the week, especially to avoid duplicating the Sunday readings" (cf. rubric before Dec 17 in the weekday Lectionary, no. 193).
These weekdays are privileged, so any memorial is considered to be optional. If it is commemorated, at Mass the opening prayer of the memorial is used in place of the seasonal text. At the Office of Readings, after the weekday readings, one may add the Hagiographical Reading of the memorial, the responsory and the concluding prayer. At Morning and Evening Prayer, the prayer of the saint may be added (with its antiphon) after the prayer of the day (omitting the conclusion). (cf. Gen. Intro. Lit. Hours, 238-39.)

APPENDIX I

Epiphany Proclamation 2015

[By ancient custom the dates for the great feasts of the coming year are announced after the Gospel on Epiphany by the deacon or priest. This custom is still mentioned in the 1984 Ceremonial of Bishops, no. 240, and in the 2002 Roman Missal. The following text is found in an appendix of the 2011 Roman Missal:]


Know, dear brethren, (brothers and sisters,)
that, as we have rejoiced at the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ,
so by leave of God's mercy
we announce to you also the joy of his Resurrection, who is our Savior.

On the eighteenth day of February will fall Ash Wednesday,
and the beginning of the fast of the most sacred Lenten season.
On the fifth day of April you will celebrate with joy Easter Day,
the Paschal feast of our Lord Jesus Christ.
On the seventeenth day of May will be the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.
On the twenty-fourth day of May the feast of Pentecost.
On the seventh day of June the feast of Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.
On the twenty-ninth day of November the First Sunday of the Advent of our Lord Jesus Christ,
to whom is honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Former text used in U.S.

Dear brothers and sisters,
the glory of the Lord has shone upon us,
and shall ever be manifest among us,
until the day of his return.
Through the rhythms of times and seasons
let us celebrate the mysteries of salvation.

Let us recall the year's culmination,
the Easter Triduum of the Lord:
his last supper, his crucifixion, his burial,
and his rising celebrated
between the evening of the second day of April
and the evening of the fifth day of April

Each Easter -- as on each Sunday --
the Holy Church makes present the great and saving deed
by which Christ has for ever conquered sin and death.
From Easter are reckoned all the days we keep holy.
Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent,
will occur on the eighteenth day of February.
The Ascension of the Lord will be commemorated on the seventeenth day of May
Pentecost, joyful conclusion of the season of Easter,
will be celebrated on the twenty-fourth day of May
And, this year the First Sunday of Advent will be on the twenty-ninth day of November.

Likewise the pilgrim Church proclaims the passover of Christ
in the feasts of the holy Mother of God,
in the feasts of the Apostles and Saints,
and in the commemoration of the faithful departed.

To Jesus Christ, who was, who is, and who is to come,
Lord of time and history,
be endless praise, for ever and ever. R. Amen.

(One should adjust the date of the Ascension in those places where the feast is celebrated on Thursday.)



Appendix II

Mass Intentions to be Offered by Jesuits Each Month

(See Acta Romana 15 [1967-72]: 61.)
Where one or more Mass intentions are prescribed without further notation, it is understood that they are prescribed for each priest and are to be said as first-intention Masses; those who are not priests are to offer as manhy Masses as priests are obliged to offer.
Every month, each Jesuit is to offer one Mass for each of these four intentions:

  1. The intention of Father General
  2. The deceased of the Society
  3. Our benefactors
  4. The needs of the Church and the Society

If possible, in November the intention for the deceased of the Society should be offered on November 3 or the day following.
The intention for the needs of the Church and the Society should be offered, if possible, on the following days:

  1. Jan 3 (Holy Name of the Name Jesus)
  2. Mar 12 (Anniversary of the canonization of Ss Ignatius and Francis Xavier)
  3. May 31 (Visitation)
  4. Sacred Heart
  5. Aug 7 (Anniversary of the restoration of the Society, 1814)
  6. Sep 27 (Anniversary of the first confirmation of the Society, 1540)

General Liturgical Guidelines

Jesuits are encouraged to become knowledgable about local diocesan liturgical practices. For example, some U.S. dioceses prescribe kneeling after the Agnus Dei while others prescribe standing. Some dioceses encourage the assembly to remain standing until the end of Communion, while others have not made any such determination.
In following the recommendations of 2002 GIRM 85 about distributing Communion from what has been consecrated at that Mass to the entire assembly (reiterated by the U.S. Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy), some dioceses do not permit bringing previously consecrated hosts from the tabernacle unless and before they are, in fact, absolutely needed during the distribution of Communion. The U.S. Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy has also reiterated on various occasions that the norm should be to consecrate enough bread and wine at each Mass for the communicants expected and never to plan on going to the tabernacle. (Note that no liturgical books explicitly permit using hosts from the tabernacle during Communion at Mass.)
Sacristans should also note, in preparing for Mass, that the celebrant is "bound to" receive Communion from what has been consecrated at that Mass (2002 GIRM 85). This rule also applies to any concelebrants, and is related to the "integrity of the sacrifice" mentioned by Pius XII in Mediator Dei (nos. 112, 115. Also see Summ Theol, IIIa, q 82, art 4).
Thus, hosts from a tabernacle must never be distributed to concelebrants in place of what has been consecrated at that Mass.

Summary of Norms from printed U.S. Jesuit Ordo

    Calendar to be followed
  1. "On Solemnities the Priest is obliged to follow the Calendar of the church where he is celebrating." (2002 GIRM, no. 353).
  2. "On Sundays, on the weekdays during Advent, Christmas Time, Lent, and Easter Time, on Feasts, and on Obligatory Memorials:
    "a) If Mass is celebrated with the people, the Priest should follow the Calendar of the church where he is celebrating;
    "b) If Mass is celebrated with the participation of one minister only, the Priest may choose either the Calendar of the church or his own proper Calendar." (2002 GIRM, no. 354).
  3. "Members of religious institutes join with the community of the local Church in celebrating the dedication of the cathedral and the feasts of the principal patrons of the place and of the wider geographical region in which they live (GILH, no. 241; UNLYC, no. 52c). These are celebrated as feasts (see TLD, 8a, b).
  4. The titular of a church is celebrated as a solemnity in that church; the same is true of the anniversary of the church's dedication (TLD, 4c, 4b).

    Mass for the People (Pro Populo)
  5. A pastor "is obliged to apply a Mass for the people of his parish on Sundays and holy days of obligation in his diocese" (CIC 534.1).

    Precedence of Liturgical Celebrations
    5bis. Solemnities and Feasts of the Lord take precedence over Sundays in Ordinary Time. Other feasts and memorials falling on Sundays are omitted. Sundays of Advent, Lent and Easter take precedence over solemnities. In these cases and when solemnities occur on privileged weekdays, the solemnities are transferred, usually to the following (or first free) Monday (UNLYC 5, 60).
    The following weekdays are considered in some sense "privileged."
    -- All days of the Octave of Easter are celebrated as solemnities of the Lord (GNLYC 24) and take precedence over all other celebrations.
    -- Ash Wednesday and Holy Week also have precedence over all other celebrations.
    -- The last week of Advent (Dec 17-24), the octave of Christmas, and the weekdays of Lent are privileged with respect to memorials (GNLYC 16).
    Obligatory memorials occurring on Lenten weekdays are celebrated as optional memorials (GNLYC 14). The calendar itself only includes optional memorials during the last week of Advent and includes feasts and optional memorials during the Christmas octave. On weekdays of the Easter Season, memorials of Saints may be celebrated fully (2002 GIRM 355a).

    Choice of Mass Texts
  6. On solemnities the priest is bound to follow the calendar of the church in which he is celebrating (see note 1 above, 2002 GIRM, no. 353) and to use the texts proper to that day.
  7. "On Sundays, the weekdays during Advent, Christmas Time, Lent, and Easter Time, on Feasts, and on Obligatory Memorials:
    "a) If Mass is celebrated with the people, the Priest should follow the Calendar of the church where he is celebrating;
    "b) If Mass is celebrated with the participation of one minister only, the Priest may choose either the Calendar of the church or his proper Calendar." (2002 GIRM, no. 354)
  8. "On Memorials of Saints [outside of Advent II, Lent, and Easter Time], the proper Collect is said or, if this is lacking, one from an appropriate Common. As to the Prayer over the Offerings and the Prayer after Communion, unless they are proper, they may be taken either from the Common or from the weekday of the current time of year." (2002 GIRM, no. 363).
  9. "On Optional Memorials,
    "a) On the weekdays of Advent from Dec 17 to 24, on days within the Octave of the Nativity of the Lord, and on the weekdays of Lent, except Ash Wednesday and during Holy Week, the Mass texts for the current liturgical day are used; but the Collect may be taken from a Memorial which happens to be inscribed in the General Calendar for that day, except on Ash Wednesday and during Holy Week. On weekdays of Easter Time, Memorials of Saints may rightly be celebrated in full.
    "b) On weekdays of Advent before Dec 17, on weekdays of Christmas Time from Jan 2, and the weekdays of Easter Time, one of the following may be chosen: either the Mass of the weekday, or the Mass of the Saint or of one of the Saints whose Memorial is observed, or the Mass of any Saint inscrdibed in the Martyrology for that day." (2002 GIRM, no. 355).
  10. "On weekdays in Ordinary Time, ..., besides the orations from the previous Sunday, orations from another Sunday in Ordinary Time may be used, or one of the Prayers for Various Needs provided in the Missal. However, it shall always be permissible to use from these Masses the Collect alone." (2002 GIRM, no. 363).
    "On weekdays in Ordinary Time, there may be chosen either the Mass of the weekday, or the Mass of an Optional Memorial which happens to occur on that day, or the Mass of any Saint inscribed in the Martyrology for that day, or a Mass for Various Needs, or a Votive Mass." (2002 GIRM, no. 355c)
    "Daily" Masses for the dead "may be celebrated on weekdays in Ordinary Time on which Optional Memorials occur or when the Office is of the weekday, provided such Masses are actually applied for the dead" (2002 GIRM, no. 381). These should be used in moderation (2002 GIRM, no. 355).
    When a Mass of an optional memorial is celebrated, all is done as for an obligatory memorial (see 2002 GIRM 355, GILH 234).
  11. When a priest celebrates with a congregation, in his choice of a Mass formulary, he "should be attentive to the common spiritual good of the People of God than to his own inclinations" (2002 GIRM, no. 352).
    The entry "Mass ad libitum" in this Ordo is a reminder that the various choices described above under no. 10 are available to the celebrant.

    Norms in this Ordo regarding the Collect, Gloria, Readings, Creed, Preface, Eucharistic Prayer IV (and similar Eucharistic Prayers)
  12. "At Mass only a single Collect is evere said." (2002 GIRM, no. 54) This rule also applies to the Prayer over the Offerings and the Prayer after Communion (2002 GIRM, nos. 77, 89).
    As noted above in 9a, in place of the seasonal collect, on Optional Memorials between Dec 17 and 24, within the octave of Christmas, and on weekdays of Lent, the Collect of the Optional Memorial may be used.
  13. The Gloria is prescribed "on Sundays outside Advent and Lent, and also on Solemnities and Feasts, and at particular celebrations of a more solemn character." (2002 GIRM, no. 53).
  14. The special readings prescribed in the Lectionary for Sundays, Solemnities, and Feasts, and also for those Obligatory Memorials that have proper readings are noted in this Ordo.
  15. On weekdays, apart from Solemnities, Feasts, and Memorials with proper readings, the continuous readings assigned in the Lectionary are noted.
    "[T]hese readings will in general be used on the days to which they are assigned...
    "Should,however, the continuous reading during the week from time to time be interrupted, on account of some Solemnity or feast, or some particular celebration, then the Priest shall be permitted, bearing in mind the scheme of readings for the entire week, either to combine parts omitted with other readings or to decide which readings are to be given preference over others." (2002 GIRM, no. 358).
    One should note that the Lectionary for Weekdays does provide for each Memorial appropriate readings which may be used when the Memorial is celebrated with greater solemnity.
  16. The Creed is prescribed on "Sundays and Solemnities" and may also be used at "particular celebrations of a more solemn character" (2002 GIRM, no. 68).
  17. The preface is noted when it is not one of the proper, common (weekday), or seasonal prefaces.
    a. Prefaces for apostles, martyrs, pastors, virgins, religious, or holy men and women should be used on Solemnities and Feasts of saints. Such prefaces may also be used on memorials, an option that will not be noted each time in this Ordo (see Notitiae 11 [1975]:312).
    (b) Eucharistic Prayer IV must be used with its invariable preface (2002 GIRM, no. 365d). However, when a seasonal preface is prescribed, except on Christmas, Easter, and during their octaves, Eucharistic Prayer IV may nonetheless be used, along with its invariable preface.
    (c) The Eucharistic Prayers for Reconciliation, for Masses with Children, and for Various Needs and Occasions also have invariable prefaces. The same norms govern their use as for Eucharistic Prayer IV. Nevertheless, although the Eucharistic Prayers for Reconciliation are provided with their own prefaces, they may be used with other prefaces that refer to penance and conversion, for example, those of Lent (cf. 2002 Missale Romanum, Appendix to Ordo Missae).

    Masses for Various Occasions
  18. Among Masses for various occasions "are included Ritual Masses, Masses for Various Needs and Occasions and Votive Masses." (2002 GIRM, no. 371):
    (a) "Ritual Masses are connected with the celebration of certain Sacraments or Sacramentals" (2002 GIRM, no. 372).
    (b) "Masses for Various Needs and Occasions are used in certain situations either as occasion arises or at fixed times" (2002 GIRM, no. 373).
    (c) "Votive Masses of the mysteries of Christ or in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary or of the Angels or of any given Saint may be said in response to the devotiion of the faithful on weekdays in Ordinary Time, even if an Optional Memorial occurs" (2002 GIRM, no. 375).
    Colors: Ritual Masses are celebrated in their proper color, in white, or in a festive color; Masses for Various Needs are celebrated in the color proper to the day or the season or in violet (if the Mass has a penitential character); Votive Masses are celebrated in the color suited to the Mass itself or even in the color proper to the day or the time of the year (2002 GIRM, no. 347).
    Permitted Use: Ritual Masses are prohibited on Sundays of Advent, Lent, and Easter, on solemnities, during Holy Week and the Easter Octave, and on Ash Wednesday and All Souls' Day (2002 GIRM, no. 372).
    On weekdays in Ordinary Time, even if an optional memorial occurs, Votive Masses may be celebrated for the sake of the faithful's devotion (2002 GIRM 373) or a Mass for Various Needs or prayers from those for special circumstances may be used (2002 GIRM 377). Traditional devotions are associated with Christ the Eternal High Priest on the first Thursday of the month, the Sacred Heart on the first Friday, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the first Saturday of each month. In addition, a Mass of the BVM is encouraged to be offered on free Saturdays (2002 GIRM 378). (see Notitiae 5 1969]: 404, no. 17)
    "On days when there occurs an Obligatory Memorial or on a weekday of Advent up to and including Dec 16, of Christmas Time from Jan 2, and of Easter Time after the Octave of Easter, Masses for Various Needs and Occasions and Votive Masses are in principle forbidden. If, however, some real necessity or pastoral advantage calls for it, in the estimation of the rector of the church or the Priest Celebrant himself, a Mass appropriate to the same may be used in a celebration with peopole" (2002 GIRM, no. 376).
    In case of serious need or pastoral advantage, at the direction of the diocesan Bishop or with his permission, an appropriate Mass may be celebrated except on solemnities, the Sundays of Advent, Lent, and Easter, during Holy Week and the Easter Octave, or on Ash Wednesday or All Souls' Day (2002 GIRM, no. 374).

    Norms Governing the Liturgy of the Hours
  19. On proper solemnities and feasts such as are described under no. 4 above, the corresponding office is said by those who are considered assigned to that church, e.g., pastors and associates (Gen. Inst. Lit. Hours [GILH], no. 243).
  20. "In private recitation [of the Liturgy of the Hours], the calendar of the place or the person's own calendar may be used, except on proper solemnities and feasts" (GILH, no. 243).
  21. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the arrangement of the Office is presented in the Ordinary for each of the seasons of the liturgical year.
  22. For the reading given in place at Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer, "especially in a celebration a congregation, a longer Scripture reading may be chosen either from the office of readings or the Lectionary for Mass, particularly texts that for some reason have not been used. From time to time some other more suitable readings may be used, in accordance with the rules in GILH, nos. 248, 249 and 251" (GILH, no. 46).
    In the prayers of intercession, the introductory formula is provided for use when Morning Prayer or Evening Prayer is recited in common (see GILH, no. 190).
    Unless expressly noted otherwise (e.g., on Saturdays and the day before Solemnities when the celebration of the day begins on the previous evening with EP), Evening Prayer is taken from the Office of the occurring day. If two solemnities occur on successive days, or a solemnity occurs on a Saturday or Monday, the Evening Prayer between the two celebrations is of the higher ranked celebration. If both are of equal rank, Evening Prayer of the current day is celebrated (cf. GNLYC 61).
    Instead of the weekday Night Prayer, either of the Sunday Night Prayers can alwyas be said (see GILH, no. 88, Ordinary of the Liturgy of the Hours, Night Prayer).
    Moments of silence are encouraged after each psalm and the readings (GILH, nos. 112, 202).

    Permitted Variations in the Office or Some of its Parts
  23. "On weekdays when an optional memorial is permitted, for a good reason the office of a saint listed on that day in the Roman Martyrology, or in an approved appendix to it, may be celebrated in the same way as other memorials" (GILH 234).
    "In the Office for Sundays, solemnities, feasts of the Lord listed in the General Calendar, the weekdays of Lent and Holy Week, the days within the Octaves of Easter and Christmas, and the weekdays from Dec 17 to 24 inclusive, it is never permissible to change the formularies that are proper or adapted to the celebration, such as antiphons, hymns, readings, responsories, prayers, and very often also the psalms" (GILH, no. 247).
  24. The "cycle of readings from Scripture that is provided in the Office of Readings must not be set aside during the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. During Ordinary Time, on a particular day or for a few days in succession, it is permissible, for a good reason, to choose readings from those provided on other days or even other biblical readings; for example, on the occasion of retreats, pastoral gatherings, prayers for Christian unity, or other such events" (GILH, no. 248).
    "The readings, prayers, songs, and intercessions appointed for the weekdays of a particular season may be used on other weekdays of the same season" (GILH, no. 251, see also ibid., 248-50).
  25. Alternative psalms may be chosen as follows:
    "In place of the Sunday psalms of the current week, there is an option to substitute Sunday psalms of a different week, and, in the case of an office celebrated with a congregation, even other psalms especially chosen to lead the people step by step to an underestanding of the psalms" (GILH, no. 247).
    "Everyone should be concerned to respect the complete cycle of the four-week psalter. Still, for spiritual or pastoral advantage, the psalms appointed for a particular day may be replaced with other from the same hour of a different day" (GILH, no. 252).
    "There are also circumstances occasionally arising when it is permissible to choose suitable psalms and other texts in the way done for a votive office" (GILH, no. 252).

    Celebration of Memorials Occurring on Privileged Days and during Privileged Seasons
  26. "On Sundays, solemnities, and feasts, on Ash Wednesday, during Holy Week, and during the Octave of Easter, memorials that happen to fall on these days are disregarded" (GILH, no. 237) in the Liturgy of the Hours.
    "On weekdays from Dec 17 to 24, during the Octave of Christmas, and on the weekdays of Lent, no obligatory memorials are celebrated even in particular calendars. When any happen to fall during Lent in a given year, they are treated as optional memorials" (GILH 238).
    "During privileged seasons, if it is desired to celebrate the office of a saint on a day assigned to his or her memorial,
    "a) in the office of readings, after the patristic reading (with its responsory) from the Proper of Seasons, a proper reading about the saint (with its responsory) may follow, with the concluding prayer of the saint;
    "(b) at Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer, the ending of the concluding prayer may be omitted and the saint's antiphon (from the proper or common) and prayer may be added" (GILH, no. 239);
    (c) as mentioned above in note 9a, at Mass, the Collect may be of the saint (cf. 2002 GIRM 355a).

    The Use of the Te Deum
  27. The Te Deum is used at the end of the Office of Readings on Sundays outside of Lent, during the octaves of Easter and Christmas, on solemnities, and on feasts (GILH, no. 68).
