Ordo 2012

January 7, 2012

Getting the Ordo (a book which tells what feasts are celebrated on what days; in this case one put out by the FSSP for the ’62 missal) for the new year, I note that:

The propers of the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany are sung once again on the 4th; after this comes Septuagestima.

The feast of St. John the Baptist (June 24th) falls on a Sunday this year; since it is first class, it trumps the Sunday.  Prepare for Ut queant laxis and bonfires.  St. John the Baptist is a patron saint for musicians.

The first Sunday of October, which can be the external solemnity of Our Lady of the Rosary, is the 19th after Pentecost.  Christ the King at the end of October falls on the 22nd Sunday after Pentecost.  This is the one downside of not having Christ the King at the end of the year; it always bumps out another Sunday at random.  On the other hand, this is not a problem if you consider that the Sunday mass is repeated on ferial days of the week.  However, most people don’t get to sing for weekday masses.

All Saints (Nov. 1) and All Souls (Nov. 2) are on Thursday and Friday.

The propers for the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost are repeated this year for the 24th, 25th, and 26th Sundays.  Jolly!

The feast of the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8) is on a Saturday.  Convenient!

Best of all, Epiphany (Jan. 6th) falls on a Sunday.  Hooray!
