The Roman Martyrology by Gregory XIII

THE movable feasts could not be mentioned in the Martyrology, because they are kept on different days each year. They are put in this place, in order that after naming the day of the month, each one may be announced before reading the Martyrology of the day on which it shall occur in that year, as follows:

Saturday preceding Sunday the 3d, 4th or 5th of January, or when Sunday does not fall on any of these dates, the first day of January.

The feast of the most holy Name of Jesus.

Saturday before Septuagesima Sunday.

Septuagesima Sunday, on which the canticle of the Lord,—Alleluia, ceases to be said.

Tuesday after Quinquagesima Sunday.

Ash-Wednesday, and the beginning of the fast of the most holy season of Lent.

Thursday after Passion Sunday.

The festival of the Seven Dolors of the most blessed Virgin Mary.

Saturday before Palm-Sunday.

Palm-Sunday, when our Lord Jesus Christ, according to the prophecy of Zachary, entered Jerusalem, sitting upon the foal of an ass, and was met by the multitude bearing palms.

Wednesday of Holy Week.

The Lord’s Supper, when Christ Jesus, the day before He was crucified for our salvation, delivered to His disciples the mysteries of His body and blood to be celebrated.

Easter Sunday, before naming the day of the month.

On this day which the Lord has made, is the solemnity of solemnities, and our Passover; the Resurrection of our Saviour Jesus Christ according to the flesh.

Then are read the day of the month and the Martyrology of the following day.

The third Tuesday after Easter.

The Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Ascension Eve.

On Mount Olivet, the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Whit-Sunday Eve.

The day of Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost came upon the disciples at Jerusalem in the shape of fiery tongues.

Saturday within the Octave of Whit-Sunday.

The feast of the most holy and indivisible Trinity.

Wednesday after the Octave of Whit-Sunday.

The feast of the most Sacred Body of Christ.

Thursday, the Octave day of Corpus Christi.

The feast of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
