THE ORDER HOW THE PSALTER IS APPOINTED TO BE READ

THE Psalter is to be read through once a month as it is there appointed, unless the Psalms are read according to one of the Tables following. On the thirty-first day of the month, the Psalms for the thirtieth are to be used, or else one of the selections found in the Table of Selections following.

Upon any weekday for which no Proper Psalms are appointed, one Psalm may be omitted, provided that one Psalm, or one numbered portion of a Psalm, is always retained. A Table is provided according to which the Psalter may be read through in a period of two months. It is intended for use on those days on which the shortened service is permitted.

Psalms for special occasions not already provided are appointed by the Ordinary.

The Gloria Patri is to be said or sung after each Psalm, or numbered portion of a Psalm, or after the whole selection of Psalms. It may be omitted on the last three days of Holy Week.

The following passages in the Psalter as hitherto used are omitted: Psalm 14. 5-7; 55. 16; 58 (all); 68. 21-23; 69. 23-29; 104. 35 (in part); 109. 5-19; 136. 27; 137. 7-9; 140. 9-10; 141. 7-8. The verses are renumbered.

In the Psalter the sign / indicates the place in each verse where the chant changes. In reading, a pause is made at this sign.

Note that the word hell where used in the Psalter means the place of the dead.

AT THE EUCHARIST

The use of the Psalter at the Eucharist is optional.

A Psalm, or a portion of a Psalm, may be said or sung as the Ministers proceed to the holy Table.

Except in Passiontide the Gloria Patri may follow the Psalm, and one of the verses of the Psalm may be repeated for an Antiphon.

A Psalm, or a portion of a Psalm, may be used between the Lections. Except in penitential times Alleluia may be added, but it is not customary to add the Gloria Patri.

The portions of the Psalter noted in the following Table for use at the Eucharist may be shortened, or the whole of the Psalm may be used.

When these portions of the Psalter are used, they may be recited by the Priest and people, or by the Priest alone.
