I looked at page 965, expecting to see that Votives were in principle forbidden on weekdays in Lent (see the corresponding rubric on page 1,000); but I see nothing positive or negative about Votives in Lent! Have I missed something?
A reader asked me ... I had wondered myself ... what colour the Votive of the Five Wounds should have. In the Rubrical Directory, Masses of the Passion are to be in Red, which makes obvious sense; but in the Old Roman Rite the Mass Humiliavit of the Lord's Passion (from which the Mass of the Five Wounds borrows most of its texts) is to be in Violet.
Magic! The endlessly knowledgeable and resourceful Rubricarius produced for me Burns and Oates ORDOs for 1898 and 1908, which make it clear that the Five Wounds are indeed celebrated in Red. With thanks to him, I pass on this information to readers for whom it is relevant.
Back in those more ample days before S Pius X took a pair of very sharp scissors to the Calendar, every Friday in Lent was observed, in all the Catholic dioceses of England, with a Feast thematically related to the Lord's Passion. The Five Wounds came on the Friday after Lent III. They were all Greater Doubles. And they were in Red vestments.
