The fourth Sunday after Pentecost is of semi-double rite. As, this year, it is also the Sunday within the Octave of St. John the Baptist the liturigcal colour is white, of the Octave.
At Vespers yesterday afternoon the antiphons Paulus et Joannes etc were sung, not doubled, with psalms 109, 112, 115, 125 & 138. From the chapter, O Altitudo, the Office was of the Sunday and the Office hymn was O lux beata Trinitas. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations were sung of the martyrs SS John and Paul and of the Octave of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. The Suffrages were omitted due to the occurring Octave as were the Dominical preces.

At Mattins the invitatory is Adoremus Dominum and the Office hymn is Nocte surgentes is sung. In the first nocturn (Pss. 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14)the lessons continue to be taken from the First Book of the Kings. The first lesson is the same as found in modern recensions, the second lesson continues David autem...grandaevus inter viros (from the modern third lesson) and the third lesson begins Abierunt autem ... quadraginta diebus. However, it then continues Dixit autem... sicut Isai - from v. 17 through to half of v. 20. In the second nocturn (Pss. 15, 16 & 17) the lessons are taken from a Sermon of St. Augustine. These are the same as found in the modern editions. In the third nocturn (Pss. 18, 19 & 20) the homily is from St. Ambrose on St. Luke's Gospel, but the lessons are longer than in modern editions. The Te Deum is sung.

At Lauds the Sunday psalms (Pss. 92, 99, 62-66, Benedicite & 148-49-150) are sung. The Office hymn is Ecce jam noctis. After the collect of the Sunday a commemoration of the Octave is sung.

At Prime (Pss. 53, 117, 118i & 118ii) Quicumque is sung but the Dominical preces are omitted due to the occurring Octave.

At Vespers the antiphons and psalms (109, 110, 111, 112 & 113) of Sunday are sung. The Office hymn is Lucis creator. After the collect of the Sunday commemorations are sung of the following feast of St. Leo II and the Octave. The Suffrages are omitted due to the Octave as are the Dominical preces at Compline.
