For this Ordinary Form calendar Sunday, we have reached the 6th Sunday of Ordinary Time.

In the Extraordinary Form this Sunday is the sober but helpful, purple-draped pre-Lenten Sexagesima Sunday.  The calendar is helping those who follow the TLM to prepare for a fruitful Lent.  The Gloria is already gone and the Alleluia has been buried until the resurrection.

In the Ordinary Form – still in cheery green with its Gloria and Alleluia – we have a Collect based on a prayer in the 8th c. Liber sacramentorum Gellonensis  for the Sunday after Ascension Thursday… yes, Thursday, not Ascension Thursday Sunday.
