Monday 13. Feria II. Sub tuum presidium.
Tuesday 14. Feria III. O florens rosa.
Wednesday 15. The Dispersal of the Apostles, semidouble. Rogamus te.

The feast of the divisio apostolorum, kept in various parts of the Church even into the twentieth century, commemorates the missionary activity of the apostles after their departure from Jerusalem to the peripheries.
