Dee I here ya, but I can help for today... Sunday we begin a new volume YAY ADVENT. All the background and instructions are at the front of that book for all four volumes...
TODAY is Nov 30 the Feast Day celebrating the Apostle Andrew- St. Peter's brother.
So special pages are used because it is a special day
Green Book - Ordinary Time weeks 18-34
(and this is week 34) This book is to be used through tomorrow... Kind of fun to give it a little attention before you begin Sunday with the
Blue or ADVENT book
1673 - begins the treasure map - as I see it (a collection of treasured writings and prayers).
1673 sends you to - put a ribbon in it (note the antiphon)
613 for the Invitatory Psalm 95 - the antiphon is on page 1673
Put a ribbon in it
End the Invitatory with a Glory Be.... As written
On to the readings as directed on p. 615
Read the opening at the top of that page then turn to today's readings for THE COMMON OF APOSTLES because we're celebrating St. Andrew so
Page 1673- Office of Readings includes Psalms 19, 64, 97 followed by the
1ST READING on
It directs us next to PAGE 1584 -1587 when instructed to
Page 616 for the Te Deum
Page 1587 - 1590 for Morning Prayer which is pretty short ending with an Our Father and then a beautiful Prayer
TADA! If you can do it and love books as I do, it is such a treasured blessing... So here I go to follow my own directions. Hope I got it right.
Oh this is hard but so worth it
I am working my way through those instructions at the front of The ADVENT book. I guess this is called New Catholic's first Advent excitement. Smile. Hugs. Prayers for your successful experience with our Lord.
A smile can make it all feel a little better. So, I go and smile at myself in the mirror. Shallow or what? But it works... My name is Kathy and I'm Pennsylvania.
