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.
