Doubles are always kept on the day marked in the Calen. dar, unless they fall upon some privileged day which takes precedence of the Festival; in which cases they are transferred to the first vacant day; that is, to the first day on which there is neither Double nor Semidouble marked in the Calendar. The same is to be observed with regard to Semi. doubles, wbich are also transferred to the first vacant day, if they fall on a Sunday, or during the Octave of Corpus Christi.

Simples have no mark in the Calendar, and are never transferred; but if they fall on a Sunday, or on any other day, when the Office cannot be said of them, a Commemora. tion of them is made by the Collect, &c., in the Mass, except on Doubles of the First Class, and at High Mass on Doubles of the second Class.

When any Festivals have been transferred from their proper days, they are afterwards to be kept in this order; those that are Doubles are to be kept first, and afterwards those that are Semidoubles.


EACH SUNDAY. 1. The proper Mass of the Sunday is always said on tho following Sundays: the First Sunday of Advent; the First Sunday of Lent; Passion Sunday; Palm Sunday; Easter Sunday; Low Sunday; Whitsunday, and Trinity Sunday.

2. The proper Mass of the Sunday is also always said on the following Sundays, except a Double of the First Class falls upon them; the Second, Third, and fourth Sundays of Advent; Septuagesima, Sexagesima, and Quinquagesima Sundays; also the Second, Third, and Fourth Sundays of Lent.

3. On all other Sundays, refer to the Calendar, at the beginning of the Missal: if the Festival which occurs on that day is a Double, the Mass will be of the Festival with a Commemoration of the Sunday: but if the Festival is not a Double, the Mass of the Sunday is to be said.


WEEK DAYS. 1. THE Mass of the Feria, or Vigil, is always said on the fol jowing days; Christmas-Eve; Ash-Wednesday; all Holy Week: all Easter Week; Whitsun-Eve, and during the Oc. tave of Whitsunday.

2. On the Fridays between Septuagesima and Palm Sun. days, the Masses of the Passion, &c., are said, unless a Double of the I. or II. class, falls on them. These Masses are to be found in their proper places.

3. On other Days refer to the Calendar; if a Double or Semidouble occurs, the Mass will be of the Feast. On Simples, and on days on wbich no Festival occurs, refer to The Guide to the Service of the Church, or Directory, which is published annually, in order to find out whether any traps. ferred Feast is to be kept on that day. If no Feast is transferred to that day, the Mass will be of the Simple or of the Feria In Advent and Lent, Mass is never said of a Simple, but a Commemoration only is made of it after the Collect of the Day. Out of Advent and Lent, if a Simple or a Feria falls on a Thursday, the Mass of the B. Sacrament, (page 547,) is taid; if on a Saturday, the Mass of the Commemoration of the Conception of the B. V. Mary, (page 547,) is said.

On Ferias, the proper Mass of the Feria is said during Lent, on the Ember Days, and Rogation Monday and Tuesday. At other times of the year, the Mass of the preceding Sunday is said.

On Vigils, the Mass of the Vigil is said, unless there be a Double or a Semidouble Feast that day. If a Festival, which has a Vigil, falls on a Monday, the Vigil is kept on the preceding Saturday, except the Vigil of Christmas and of the Epiphany.

If a Vigil falls within an Octave, the Mass is of the Vigil with a Commemoration of the Octave.'

If a Vigil falls in Lent, or on an Ember Day, the Mass is of the Feria, with a Commemoration of the Vigil.


ARR TO BE MADE AT MASS. 1. Upon all Doubles, one only Collect is said, viz., that which is assigned for the proper day; except it falls upon a Sunday, or within some Octave, or upon some Vigil, or in the time of Advent or Lent, or except it concurs with some Simple: in all which cases two Collects are to be said, one of the Double, the other of the Sunday, Octave, Vigil, Feria, or Saint occurring upon the same Day.

2. Upon Sundays and all Semidoubles three Collects are said; excepting Sundays which occur within an Octave, on which only two Collects are said, viz., one of the Sunday, the other of the Octave.

3. Upon all Sundays and Semidoubles occurring between the Octave of Whitsunday and Advent, or between Candle. mas and Lent, the second Collect is, A cunctis (page 139), and the third is left to the choice of the Priest, to be taken from among the Occasional Collects, fc. at the end of the Missal, (page 773.) * 4. Upon Sundays and other Semidoubles, between the Oc. tave of the Epiphany and Candlemas, the second Collect is, Deus qui salutis (page 126); and the third Ecclesiæ tuæ, for the Church, or Deus omnium, for the Pope, (page 87.)

5. Upon all Semidoubles between Ash Wednesday and Passion Sunday, the second Collect is of the Feria, that is to say, of the Day of the Week, as in the Proper for Lent; and the third Collect A cunctis, (page 139.) But upon the ferias between Passion Sunday and Maundy Thursday, the second Collect is Ecclesiæ tuæ or Deus omnium (page 87); a third Collect is not said.

6. Upon Sundays and all Semidoubles between Low Sun.

day and Ascension-Day, the second Collect is Concede (page 548); the third for the Church, or for the Pope, (page 87.) Which same Collects are also said upon all Vigils (excepting the Vigils of Christmas, Easter, and Whitsunday, which have only one Collect) and within all Octaves, when the Mass is said of the Octave; (except the Octaves of Easter and Whitsunday, in which is added only a second Collect for the Church or for the Pope ; except also the Octaves of the Blessed Virgin, and of All Saints, in which, the second Collect is Deus qui corda (page 550' and the third, for the Church or for the Pope, (page 87.)

7. Upon Semidoubles which oecur within Octaves, or upon Vigils, &c. the second Collect is a Commemoration of the Octave or Vigil; and the third Concede, (page 548): but within the Octaves of the Blessed Virgin, the third Collect is Deus qui corda, (page 550.)

Upon all Semidoubles occurring in Advent, the second Collect is a Commemoration of the time of Advent, to be taken from the foregoing Sunday, and the third Collect is Deus qui, (page 87.)

9. Upon Simples and Ferias, three Collects are said, as upon Semidoubles.

10. The Gospels that are assigned for the Sundays are Dever omitted. Wherefore, if it happens that any Double is kept upon a Sunday, the Gospel which belongs to the Sunday is read at the end of the Mass, instead of the “Beginning of the Gospel of St. John;" which same thing is also observed whenever a Double or Semidouble is kept upon any day in Lent, or on a Vigil, or Ember Day.
