Nidaros ordo

Sunday 4 October. SAINT FRANCIS, confessor, double. Commemoration of the Eighteenth Sunday after Trinity. Anthem after Compline: Ave regina celorum.
Monday 5. Feria II. Sub tuum presidium.
Tuesday 6. St Faith, virgin martyr, three lessons. Com. St Eskill, bishop and martyr. O florens rosa.
Wednesday 7. St Birgitta, widow, semidouble. Com. St Mark, pope, Ss Marcellus & Apuleius. Rogamus te.

Friday 9. St Denis and his companions, martyrs, single. Mundi domina.
Saturday 10. St Gereon and his companions, martyrs, three lessons. Salve regina.

Twa-three items of local interest here. St Eskill was an Anglo-Saxon missionary to Sweden; in most places his feast is observed on 12 June - why not here? St Bridget of Sweden is rather grudgingly categorised as a vidua in the Breviary calendar; in the body of the book she is a sponsa christi.
