notes: Season after Pentecost

Notes for the Liturgy during Paschaltide after Pentecost

1. The Easter Season ends after None on Ember Saturday and the Time of Pentecost begins with First Vespers of Trinity Sunday. There is no commemoration of the First Sunday after Pentecost on Trinity Sunday. However, during the following week, it is the Sunday, and not the festal, Mass which is used for ferial days.

2. June 11th is the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. If there is a procession of the Blessed Sacrament immediately after Mass, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the monstrance on the Altar immediately after Communion. The Benedicamus Domino is said; there is no blessing or Last Gospel. Pange Lingua is sung during the procession.

3. The Votive Mass of the Most Holy Eucharist (2nd Class) may be celebrated during the seven days following the feast. A procession of the Blessed Sacrament must follow the Mass. Two such occasions are allowed.

4. Friday June 19th is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. A plenary indulgence may be gained by saying the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus publicly in front of the Blessed Sacrament today, subject to the usual conditions.
