The Additional Sundays after Pentecost or the Movable Sundays after Epiphany

If there are more than 24 Sundays after Pentecost, the Introit, Gradual, Offertory and Communion of the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost are repeated on all the remaining Sundays. But the Collects, the Epistle and the Gospel are taken from those Sundays which were passed over that year after the Epiphany. The Mass appointed for the last Sunday after Pentecost is always said on the Sunday before Advent.

So, as an example, based on the chart below, if there are 26 Sundays after Pentecost in a given year, on the 24th Sunday, the Mass of the 5th Sunday after Epiphany is referenced.
