Nidaros ordo

Sunday 31 May. COMMEMORATION OF THE HOLY TRINITY. Commemoration of St Petronilla, virgin and martyr. Anthem after Compline: Regina celi.
Monday 1 June. Saint Urban, pope and martyr, three lessons. Com. of the Octave of the Holy Trinity. Regina celi.
Tuesday 2. Ss Marcellinus and Peter, martyrs, three lessons. Com. Oct. Trin. Com. St Augustine, bishop and confessor, apostle of the English. Regina celi.
Wednesday 3. St Erasmus, bishop and martyr, three lessons. Com. Oct. Trin. Regina celi.
Thursday 4. CORPUS CHRISTI. Com. Oct. Trin. Com. St Germanus, bishop and confessor. Regina celi.
Friday 5. St Boniface, bishop and martyr, three lessons. Comm. Octt. Trin. & Corp. Regina celi.
Saturday 6. Comm. Octt. Trin. & Corp. Salve regina.

Only this week do we finally relinquish the Regina celi.

The congestion of the Sanctoral this week is owing to the fact that all feasts falling in the Octave of Pentecost are simply bumped forward a week. Note that St Augustine of Canterbury is given the title of anglorum apostolus in the kalendar of the Nidaros Breviary, indicating the deep English roots of the Norwegian Use.
