July 19th - X Sunday after Pentecost
At Vespers yesterday afternoon the antiphons and psalms of Vespers for Saturday (Pss. 143, 144, 145, 146 & 147) were sung. The chapter was O Altitudo and the Office hymn O lux beata Trinitas. After the collect of the Sunday the Suffrages of the BVM Sancta Maria succurre etc, the Apostles Petrus Apostolus etc, of the Patron and lastly for peace Da pacem Domine were sung. At Compline the Dominical preces were sung.
At Mattins the invitatory is Adoremus Dominum and the Office hymn Nocte surgentes.

These are the same as those given in modern editions of the Breviary for the tenth Sunday after Pentecost. In the second nocturn (Pss. 15, 16 & 17) the lessons are from the twenty-fifth homily of St. Chrysostom on the Epistle to the Romans.

In the third nocturn (Pss. 18, 19 & 20) the homily is from St. Augustine on St. Luke's Gospel. These are considerably longer in the Tridentine Breviary than the form found in modern editions.
