The Meaning of Vespers will Blow Your Mind
I don't know about you, but I sometimes tend to rush thru Vespers. I'm a housewife, after all, and from 4pm thru 630 pm I'm going thru this cycle: worrying that I don't have a recipe in mind yet for dinner figuring out what I'm going to fix for dinner--sear...

What's going on with ibreviary?
If you normally rely on the ibreviary app for Android, prepare for a wild ride. If you have to manually confirm whether to do updates on your apps, do not update ibreviary! Keep your current version a while longer, because the new version has some bugs to w...

How to say Morning Prayer (a.k.a. Lauds) in only Three Hours!
An oldie but goodie from several years ago. I'm sure lots of you will identify with this. The moral: persevere in prayer and just laugh when things don't go well.  "How does a busy parent find time to pray the Divine Office?" the radio host asked me a few w...

St. Alphonsus Ligouri on the Psalms
I was cruising around on Amazon today and found a real deal.  It's a commentary on the psalms and canticles of the Divine Office by St. Alphonsus Ligouri. I haven't read it yet, but for 99 cents, what could go wrong? It includes an interactive table of cont...

Actually this is Daria's husband, Bill. I've been using Enterprise, mostly out of Cranberry, PA and I am thoroughly happy with the experience. I rent regularly. Customer service is great, all over the country the agents are uniformly cheerful and eager to help. I phone in my requests directly rather than go online because I have special requirements that the on-site agents appreciate. They always give me the perfect vehicle for my needs.
