Translation Anyone?

Hi all...

I was surfing over in England and found a really cool library server that has
illuminated manuscripts on-line. [http://rsl.ox.ac.uk/imacat.html]

Well one of the manuscripts shown is a calendar page for January from a french
Book of Hours dated c. 1525-50... tis in Latin, I think. Can anyone translate
these for me? (spellings are as close as I can determine, probably wrong in

The days of the week are alphabetical... A thru g.
I do not know what the Roman numeral to the side means...
