IV. The LiTntGic^L Year. — The Liturgical Year of the Ambrosian Rite begins, as elsewhere in the West, with the First Sunday of Advent, but that Sunday, as in the Mozarabic Rite, is a fortnight curlier than in the Roman, so that there arc six Sundays in Advent, and tlie key-day of the begin- ning of Advent is not St. Andrew's (30 Noveiiil)cr) but St. Martin's Day (11 November), which begins the Sanctoralc. The rule of this key also ditters. The Roman is: " Adventus Domini celebratur semper die Dominico, qui propinquior est festo S. Andrea; Apostoli", which gives a range from 27 November to 3 Decemlx:r. The Ambrosian is: "Adventus Dom- ini inchoatur Dominica proxima post Festum S. Martini", that is to say, from 12 November to 18 November. If, as in 1906, St. Martin's Day falls on a Sunday, the Octave is the first Sunday of Ad- vent; whereas in the Roman Rite if St. Andrew's Day falls on a Sunday, that day itself is Advent Sunday. The Fcriac of Advent continue until the Fcrice de Eiccplato liegin. These days, which some say must have been originally dc Expedalo, a quite unnecessary supposition, and on which the ordinary sequence of the Psalter is interrupted and certain proper [isalms and antiphons are said, occur a<(ord- ing to the following rule: "Officium in Advcniu Croprium quod de Exceptato dicitur semper cele- ratur in hac hebd. VI Adv. nisi dies Nativitatis Domini incident in fer. Ill, vel IV; tunc de Excep- tato fit in helxl. V Adv." So that there must be two and there may be seven of these days. Clirist- mas Eve is not ex.actly counted as one of them, though, if it falls on a weekday, it has the proper I>8alms and antiphons of that Ftria de Exceptalo. If
