Benedictine Ordo for week of 28 March - Passiontide

A change of seasons again, as we enter Passiontide from Vespers tonight, and the Office takes on a greater focus on the coming passion and Cross of Our Lord. And that means new hymns for Lauds and Vespers, new chapters, and so forth - do make sure you read carefully through the Ordinary for the Office from page 240* onwards, before you say the hours!

Also, if you are new to the Office, you might also want to start looking ahead at Holy Week and Easter, because it is a little more complex than usual....
