Happy Solemnity of St. Joseph!

If it is Lent, it will not be celebrated as Sunday's in Lent were not to be touched in the Old Liturgical Calendar. Of course all Sundays no longer give place to a Feast unless it is Christmas these days. I can't think of any other. Maybe the Assumption or the Immaculate Conception. I would have to check.

The rubrics on what Feasts take precedence over Sundays are different in the pre-1955 and 1962 books. In the 1962 books, only I class Feasts can be celebrated on Sundays, except on I class Sundays. The pre-1955 books have three classes of Sundays, allowing either no Feast, only Doubles of the I class, or only Doubles of the I and II classes. All the Sundays of Lent are I class Sundays, permitting no Feast, so St. Joseph is transferred to March 20 - or, if Palm Sunday, to Tuesday after Low Sunday. I Vespers on March 19 is of St. Joseph, with a Commemoration of the Sunday.

But, it looks like my online Divine Office resources are moving on tomorrow. Now this I'm confused about. Is the Divine Offfice for this Solemnity within the Octave only to be said after the initial day if we run into a simple Feria during this Octave? Anyone know?

As a common Octave, days within the Octave are celebrated on Ferias and Simple Feasts. The Octave day is a Greater Double, and takes precedence over all feasts except Doubles of the I and II class, including other Greater Doubles.
