St. Mary Magdalene Feast Alert!

Just a reminder--since Pope Francis has elevated (or restored) St. Mary Magdalene's day from memorial to feast, it's office will now follow the format for a feast.

This means that you will NOT use the four week psalter today. You will use   Sunday week I for Morning Prayer, and of course all the antiphons, readings, responsories and prayers that are already in the proper of saints for St. Mary Magdalene's day. Psalmody for any other hour will be that of the Common of Holy Women.

A Reader's Question on Chair of Peter Ordinariate Office

Once in a while someone asks a question that I cannot answer. In case any of you can, here it is:

Do you happen to have any information about any work being done on the Divine Office for the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter? (The UK Ordinariate already has its own Customary, but it is only approved for use within its jurisdiction.) Thanks!

- Tom

Anybody have any info on this?
