The Psalms as Balm for Election Irritation
The other day an old friend—a friend who prays the Liturgy
of the Hours—commented on Facebook about that day’s reading from Morning Prayer.
The one about watching our language, not only to keep it free of foul words,
but that what we say should be truly hel...

Once in a while someone asks a question that I cannot answer. In case any of you can, here it is: Do you happen to have any information about any work being done on the Divine Office for the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter? (The UK Ordinariat...

Compline Cheat Sheet
After saying Night Prayer (aka Compline) for so many years, I kinda sorta,  more or less had most of the psalms, readings, and concluding prayers by heart. Except for one thing:  remembering which  antiphons,psalms, readings, and prayers go with each night ...

St. Pius X has no Memorial this year, but...
Due to today being a Sunday, we don't do the memorial of St. Pius X. But if you have the time, check out the Office of Readings, second reading for his memorial. It's all about the psalter and the value of praying the Psalms. There are a handful of readings...

Breviary Bookends!
I was staying in the quaint town of Clarence, NY these last few days, and spent some time haunting various antique and collectible places. When I saw these monk bookends for $12 I knew they were just the thing for keeping our breviaries and hymnals tidy and...

English vs. Latin-ish names for the liturgical Hours

What today's Office tells us about Kim Kardashian &co.
I don't know, maybe this is silly, and the author herself suggests that possibility, but I think  this article by Elizabeth Scalia is a great example of how we continually find things in the psalms that connect to our own times and lives. Taking note of the...

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.
