Daily Office 15 – 28 February A.D. 2014

The Daily Offices for Morning and Evening Prayer in the Rite of St Tikhon. The readings are as assigned by the Antiochian Western Rite Vicariate, unofficially supplemented with other devotional material taken from the Breviary and the Psalter. Each MP/EP link will take you to a complete office, needing only the daily Psalter or, for MP, the Martyrology link.

Beginning this evening with Vespers we enter the season of Septuagesima: vestments turn to purple and we bed “goodbye” to Alleluia in the office. Starting Sunday Morning we sing “Praise be to thee, O Lord, King of eternal glory” in the opening versicles. Vigils are done away with and the days now rank in and of themselves and are commemorated if not observed (as, for example, next Saturday when we have the Feast of the Chair of St Peter at Antioch and commemorate the office of the Saturday as well).

As we turn towards Lent, may this season be of profit to your Salvation.
