Hi, guys —

  • In the Liturgy of the Hours for the feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe (August 14th), why is there is a proper antiphon for the Magnificat (Song of Mary) in Evening Prayer?

This is the evening of the Solemnity of the Assumption which is always celebrate at that time with Evening Prayer I.

With thanks,

Hi, James —

While I can't cite you an actual living example, it is theoretically possible for bishops conferences to transfer the Assumption to Sunday, in which case the Magnificat antiphon for the memorial of St. Kolbe would be relevant.
