there are many ways to look at it and many people gives good reasons and
insight about what to do.
For my part when I look at the verse and its opposite or in a quartet I
fancy to have a thought to the other hemisphere inhabitants. So if they start
the same way as I do our fancy can meet!

*******That's a good question. Opposite
verses ARE the polar of each other---you can tell by the similarity of
phrasing--- but it seems to me that, since we start with the first verse at
Easter, which is the first Sunday following the first Full Moon following the
Vernal Equinox (using an astrological formula worked out by early Christians
for the Northern Hemisphere), then there should be an opposite 'Easter' in the
Southern Hemisphere, the first Sunday after the first Full Moon following the
AUTUMNAL Eqinox. Thus, the Calander mantra will not be the exactly opposite
verse every time. The opposite one would still be close,
This touches on the question of tropical vs. sidereal
zodiacs in astrology. The Sun is in the constellation Pisces for the whole
world, while that's Spring in the Northern Hemisphere but Fall in the South.
What things are universal, true for thw whole earth, and what things are
opposites in the opposite hemispheres? What do people here think?
