Chapter 14: How the Night Office Is to Be Said on the Feasts of the Saints
On the feasts of Saints and on all festivals
let the Office be performed
as we have prescribed for Sundays,
except that the Psalms, the antiphons and the lessons
belonging to that particular day are to be said.
Their number, however, shall remain as we have specified above.
As today, October 18, is the Feast Day of St. Luke, evangelist and iconographer, it seems fitting to be reading this chapter from the RB today.
Remembrance of Saints is something we begin to see mention of in 3rd-century Christian literature. Don’t know about you, but it frequently gives me goose bumps to think how much we still share with earlier centuries of Christendom. Role models for them are role models for us today.
Who among the saints has been a role model for you?
