Advent: Officium Defunctorum


Advent is a penitential season, which in the old rite means prayers for the dead on the first ferial day of the week. Below is our production of the Officium Defunctorum from a prior Advent made available for your download and use. It contains the full Office, with the Invitatorium at Mattins, the preces for Vespers and Lauds, as well as instructions for the unique circumstances in which one could pray the Dirige. Feel free to share with interested friends.

Please give your intentions below and, if possible, participate in the Office this season.
