I got a little confused in the transition from Christmastide II to ordinary time. I'm now on week 2 of the psalter. Where is everybody else? :|

Friday of the second week in ordinary time is Week 2 in the psalter.

Belated happy feast day, Juho!

What is the Finnish version of his name?

Greetings,

It is very simple in ordinary time: Whatever week it is, divide by four. Whatever the remainder is, is the week. Remainder of zero is 4th week.

21st sunday of ordinary time: 21 divided by 4 is 5 with a remainder of one: so you would be the first week of the psalter.

peace

Thanks, NB. The official version for St Henry is pyhä Henrik. Yet the more common version as a name all the way through from the middle ages would be Heikki.
