George E. Gingras
And at the end of the weeks’ fast the vigil is kept in
the Anastasis from the hour of lucernare on the sixth weekday, when the people
come with psalms from Sion, to the morning of the Sabbath, when the oblation is
made in the Anastasis. And the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth weeks in
Quadragesima are kept as the first.
