ORDO 2017

 


THE CARMELITE FAMILY

Year A
The Year of Matthew

 

 

On the 1st Sunday of Advent 2016 we begin Year A in the Lectionary. This continues until the Feast of Christ the King in 2017. It is often called the 'Year of Matthew' because the Gospel of Matthew is the one most frequently read in Year A on Sundays and Feast days for the Liturgy of the Word at Mass.

The Good Shepherd

We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace.'
(Pope Francis. 'Misericordiae Vultus')

Notes for 2017

Lectionary
Sunday: Cycle A. Weekday: Cycle I

Ordinary Time
Weeks in Ordinary Time consist in 34 weeks.
There are 8 weeks before Lent - beginning 8 January in the Universal Calendar and ending 28 February (Tuesday before Ash Wednesday).
There are 26 weeks after Eastertime - resuming from the 9th week on 5 June (i.e. Monday after Pentecost Sunday).

The Celebration of the Eucharist

It is most desirable that the faithful, just as the priest himself is bound to do, receive the Lord's Body from hosts consecrated at the same Mass (GIRM No 86). Holy Communion has a fuller form as a sign when it is distributed under both kinds.
Before receiving Communion a person should abstain from all food and drink, with the exception of water and medicine, for at least one hour.
However, the elderly and those who are suffering from some illness, as well as those who care for them, may receive the Eucharist even if within the previous hour they have consumed something. A priest who celebrates Mass twice or more times may consume something before the second and other celebrations even though there is not an hour's interval.
A person who has received Communion may only receive once again the same day provided that they participate in a Eucharistic Celebration
On Solemnities which are holydays of Obligation, on Sundays of Advent, Lent and Eastertide and during the Paschal Triduum, all Ritual, Votive, Requiem and Funeral Masses are forbidden. On Solemnities which are not holydays of Obligation, on Ash Wednesday, during Holy Week, on days within the Easter Octave and on Sundays of Christmastide and Sundays in Ordinary Time, funeral Masses are permitted but Ritual, Votive and Requiem Masses are not.
When two obligatory Memorials coincide they are both reduced to Optional Memorials and consequently either one is of choice.
When a Solemnity falls on a Saturday or Monday, the Mass to be celebrated on Saturday or Sunday evening respectively, is the Sunday Mass. Since this ORDO covers many countries and dioceses it is not possible to indicate when a Solemnity is transferred and celebrated on the nearest Sunday. It is advisable therefore to consult the local Church calendar.

Periods of Silence within the Eucharistic Celebration

Number 45 of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (Third and Amended Typical Edition, 2008) prescribes:

'Sacred silence also, as part of the celebration, is to be observed at the designated times. Its purpose, however, depends on the time it occurs in each part of the celebration. Thus within the Act of Penitence and again after the invitation to pray, all recollect themselves; but at the conclusion of a reading or the homily, all meditate briefly on what they have heard; then after Communion, they praise and pray to God in their hearts. Even before the celebration itself, it is commendable that silence be observed in the church, in the sacristy, in the vesting room, and in adjacent areas, so that all may dispose themselves to carry out the sacred action in a devout and fitting manner.'

Paragraph 30 of the Liturgy Constitution, Sacrosanctum Concilium, likewise prescribes:
"And at the proper times all should observe a reverent silence."

Number 56 of the General Instruction specifies better the importance of silence within the Liturgy of the Word, while number 78 makes the same clear for the Liturgy of the Eucharist: "The Eucharistic Prayer demands that all listen to it with reverence and in silence."

Number 84 then underscores the importance of the observance of silence as a means of good preparation for the reception of Holy Communion:
"The priest prepares himself by a prayer, said quietly, that he may fruitfully receive Christ's Body and Blood. The faithful do the same, praying silently."
Finally, the same attitude is proposed for the period of thanksgiving after Communion:
When the distribution of Communion is finished, as circumstances suggest, the priest and faithful spend some time praying privately.
If desired, a psalm or other canticle of praise or a hymn may also be sung by the entire congregation. (n. 88)

Silence in the Liturgy of the Hours

It is a general principle that care should be taken in liturgical services to see that "at the proper times all observe a revert silence." (SC art 30). An opportunity for silence should therefore be provided in the celebration of the liturgy of the hours. (GILH 201)
In order to receive in our hearts the full sound of the voice of the Holy Spirit and to unite our personal prayer more closely with the word of God and the public voice of the Church, it is permissible, as the occasion offers and prudence suggests, to have an interval of silence during the celebration of the Divine Office.
However, care must be taken to avoid the kind of silence that would disturb the structure of the office or annoy and weary those taking part. (GILH 202)

Sunday

On the first day of each week, which is known as the Lord's Day, the Church, by an apostolic tradition that draws its origin from the very day of the resurrection of Christ, celebrates the paschal mystery. Hence, Sunday must be considered a primordial feast day. Because of its special importance, the celebration of Sunday gives way only to Solemnities and Feasts of the Lord; indeed, the Sundays of Advent, Lent and Easter have precedence over all Feasts of the Lord and over all Solemnities. In fact, Solemnities occurring on these Sundays are transferred to the following Monday unless they occur on Palm Sunday or on the Sunday of the Lord's Resurrection.

Suffrages for the Dead

On the death of a religious, even a novice, the Superior of the House is to advise the Provincial who in turn is to notify all the Monasteries of the Province as well as the Superior General.
As soon as a Monastery is notified concerning the death of a religious (including Bishops who were members of the Order), the deceased should be prayed for at the community Mass and at Evening Prayer during the intercessions. Every house in the Order is to offer one Mass for the repose of his soul.
For Superiors General and Definitors a Mass is to be celebrated in community in all the Monasteries of the Order and each Priest should offer one Mass for them. For the Holy Father or the local Bishop a community Mass is to be offered.
For a religious of the Province who dies each priest in the Province is to offer a Mass and each community is to recite the Liturgy of the Hours for the repose of his soul. For a deceased Carmelite Nun belonging to a Monastery under the jurisdiction of the Provincial, each community in the region is to offer a Mass. For a deceased parent of one of our religious, each community in the region is to offer a Mass. As a matter of charity we should remember in our Masses and prayers all who have at any time belonged to our Province.
On the commemoration of all the dead of the Order, all the Masses in our Monasteries are to be offered for the dead. Once a month, liturgical prescriptions permitting, our communities should offer a Mass and recite the Office of the Dead for the deceased members of our Order, as well and for our deceased relatives and benefactors. The Office of the Dead replaces the liturgical Office of the Day. Compline is of the weekday.
A reminder is placed in the Ordo on the eve of the anniversary of the death of those religious who have served in the Province since 1900; may they rest in peace.

Ternary Office

The Office for the Dead and Mass for Ternary intentions may be said instead of the Office of the day on one free weekday in the month during the period called Ordinary Time. This is the period outside Advent the Christmas season and outside Lent and Easter period. Compline is of the weekday.

Supplement to the Divine Office 2015
Companion to the Ordo

Many new memorials have been added by the Church since the English edition of the Divine Office in three volumes was first printed in 1974. This book collects together many of these texts. It is a general supplement and is not to be confused with the Carmelite Supplement which appears as a black hardback book.
This general supplement is now offered as a separate book and companion to the Ordo for the use of the Carmelite Family in the English speaking world.

It contains the prayer and sometimes the Second Reading of the following memorials:

12 July, Saint Louis Martin and Zèlie Guérin
14 August, St Maximilian Kolbe, Priest, Martyr
20 September, St Paul Chong Hasang, and companions, Martyrs (Korean)
23 September, St. Pius of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio), priest
9 October, Blessed. John Henry Newman, priest
11 October, St John XXIII, Pope
22 October, St John Paul II, Pope
24 November, Saint Andrew and his companions, Martyrs (Vietnamese)

Collects for the celebration of many British and Irish Saints in the New Calendar are also found in this book.
This book is often referred to in the Ordo throughout the year as Supplement. Companion to the Ordo.

at the Office of Readings, after the reading from the Fathers with its Response (taken from the Proper. of the Season), the Proper reading of the Saint, with its Response and the Collect of the Saint may be said.
at Lauds and Vespers, the Antiphon and Collect of the Saint may be added to the Collect of the Day under the one conclusion.
at Mass the Collect of the Saint may be used in place of the Collect of the Day
The Alleluia is omitted both in the Liturgy of the Hours and in the celebration of Mass.

There are four parts to the rite: the service of light, the liturgy of the Word, the liturgy of baptism and the liturgy of the Eucharist. It should take place during the night so that it does not begin before nightfall and ends before dawn.
The celebration of the Mass without the Vigil ceremonies is forbidden The Vigil may be celebrated is Churches and Oratories where the other ceremonies of the Sacred Triduum did not take place; it may be omitted even when the other ceremonies did take place. It must be performed where there is a Baptismal font.
At least three readings from the Old Testament should be read; in more urgent cases, at least two. The reading from Exodus may never be omitted. At the Gospel incense may be used but candles are not used.
The Mass at night, although celebrated before midnight, is the Easter Mass of the Resurrection and satisfies the law of hearing Mass on Easter Sunday. Holy Communion may be distributed during the Solemn Mass only.
The Easter Vigil takes the place of the Office of Readings. Those who are not present at the Vigil should include at least four of the readings (more fittingly from Exodus, Ezechiel, St. Paul and the Gospel) together with their canticles and prayers, concluding with the Te Deum and the Collect of the day.

Supplement to the Divine Office
Companion to the Ordo

Many new memorials have been added by the Church since the English edition of the Divine Office in three volumes was first printed in 1974. This book collects together many of these texts. It is a general supplement and is not to be confused with the Carmelite Supplement which appears as a black hardback book.
This general supplement is now offered as a separate book and companion to the Ordo for the use of the Carmelite Family in the English speaking world.

It contains the prayer and sometimes the Second Reading of the following memorials:

12 July, Saint Louis Martin and Zèlie Guérin
14 August, St Maximilian Kolbe, Priest, Martyr
20 September, St Paul Chong Hasang, and companions, Martyrs (Korean)
23 September, St. Pius of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio), priest
9 October, Blessed. John Henry Newman, priest
11 October, St John XXIII, Pope
22 October, St John Paul II, Pope
24 November, Saint Andrew and his companions, Martyrs (Vietnamese)

Collects for the celebration of may British and Irish Saints in the New Calendar are also found in this book.
This book is often referred to in the Ordo throughout the year.
It is available from

Supplement to the Divine Office 2015
Companion to the Ordo

Many new memorials have been added by the Church since the English edition of the Divine Office in three volumes was first printed in 1974. However, although these Divine Office volumes have been reprinted a few times they have not been edited to include the new memorials.
The texts of many of these new memorials have been available for some time but have been difficult to find.
This booklet collects together many of these texts.
This is now offered in a separate booklet as a supplement and companion to the Ordo for the use of the Carmelite Family in the English speaking world.
It contains the prayer and sometimes the Second Reading of the following memorials:

12 July, Saint Louis Martin and Zèlie Guérin
14 August, St Maximilian Kolbe, Priest, Martyr
20 September, St Paul Chong Hasang, and companions, Martyrs (Korean)
23 September, St. Pius of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio), priest
9 October, Blessed. John Henry Newman, priest
11 October, St John XXIII, Pope
22 October, St John Paul II, Pope
24 November, Saint Andrew and his companions, Martyrs (Vietnamese)
Collects for the celebration of British and Irish Saints in the New Calendar.

CARMELITE BOOK SERVICE

Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5HB

The aim is to stock all titles so as to be able to supply them without delay. The book service has grown over the years and now has over three thousand titles in stock. These include not only books on Carmelite Spirituality but also the Christian classics, books on the English Spiritual tradition, Celtic Spirituality, Eastern Spirituality and Contemporary Spirituality. It is owned, maintained and managed by the Order and is a registered charity. As well as being online a printed catalogue is available upon request.
