Mass and Liturgy Schedule Changes for Thursday Oct 12

The Mass of Remembrance for all those recently buried in a Trappist casket or urn is our community's Mass for Thursday, Oct. 12. It replaces our usual 7:00am celebration of the Eucharist. Additionally, we will pray Terce at 8:00am (instead of 9:15am) and will then perform our morning manual labor from 8:15am to 10:15am. The Mass will also take the place of the midday Office of Sext.

from Rule of St. Benedict : Chapter 16. The Celebration of the Divine Office During the Day
The Prophet says:Seven times a day have I praise you (Ps 118:164). We will fulfill this sacred number of seven if we satisfy our obligations of service at Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and Compline.

Idleness is the enemy of the soul. Therefore, the brothers should have specified periods for manual labor as well as for prayerful reading.
