Fox and Vox have decided to pray the Divine Office this Advent according to the 1570 Tridentine office. This is before the reforms of Pius X and Pius XII/John XXIII and clearly far superior (and longer) than the Liturgy of the Hours with its missing psalms.
Imagine our surprise then, when reading Matins, we came across this, in Reading IX.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.
In these our days we see nation rise against nation, and their distress over all the earth, more than we read in books hath ever come to pass of old time. Ye know also how often we hear of earthquakes overwhelming countless cities in other parts of the world. As for pestilences, we suffer from them ourselves, with hardly any intermission. As yet we do not see signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; but the changes of seasons and climates warn us that we may look for these also before long.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.
