notes: October

Notes for the Liturgy during October

1. On Sunday October 4th, the External Solemnity of Our Lady of the Rosary may be celebrated instead of the 18th Sunday after Pentecost. The Mass of the feast (October 7th) is used and there is a commemoration of the Sunday, even at sung Masses.

2. Sunday October 18th is "World Mission Sunday". The orations for the "Propagation of the Faith" are added under a single conclusion to the orations for the 20th Sunday after Pentecost.

3. Sunday October 25th is the feast of the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no commemoration of the 21st Sunday after Pentecost. One may gain a plenary indulgence by the public recitation of the Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, subject to the usual conditions.
