Divine Office Boot Camp II: Invitatory Psalm and Morning Prayer
After  psalmody comes a reading, and a few seconds or more of  reflection. Then the responsory. Then the canticle of Zechariah (antiphon, canticle, antiphon.) Save yourself endless annoyance by making a photocopy of this canticle from the Ordinary and pasti...

Liturgy of the Hours Bootcamp
Since many people decide to start praying the Liturgy of the Hours as a lenten project, I thought this would be a good time to re-run some old "how-to" posts.  If you know someone like this, feel free to share.  All right. You want to start praying the litu...

Read My Lips! How "Vocal" must our Office Be?
The question comes up from time to time about whether we are required to pray the Liturgy of the Hours out loud at least to the extent of whipering or at least moving out lips. This post on Fr. Z's blog, and the comments that follow, discusses just that. My...

Good evening, friends! Having just finished Evening Prayer,  I'm sitting here in my Divine Office rocking chair, in front of my picture window, gazing  past the birdfeeders and out into the snowy evening.  I love snowstorms when I get to watch them from ins...

Merry Christmas! Day Seven
I hope all of you are enjoying a blessed Christmastide, and now that the rush and busyness that attends on Christmas Day #1 is past, you are able to enjoy how the Church suspends time, makes it stand still, so that we can bask in this feast and marvel at it...

Worth Doing Badly
An oldie but goody post written four years ago on this date. It still holds true for me.  Surfing the net yesterday, I found several blogs and websites that contained information for beginners on praying the Liturgy of the Hours. Which is wonderful. The mor...

Seeing a familiar Scripture like it's New
Does this every happen to you? You're reading your office--morning prayer, evening prayer, whatever. Suddenly something you've read a hundred times before leaps out at you. Knocks you over. Pierces your heart. Why did I never notice this one before, you ask...

Confusing pre-Epiphany Office
Good day, friends! The other day I hinted at the annual problems with figuring out what pages to use during the days preceding the Epiphany. There are actually discrepancies between the Editio Typica altera  and the designation for these days in the America...

Third Sunday of Advent! Here at the Sockey homestead, that means the outdoor Christmas lights all go on, and we can cut down and put up the tree whenever it's most convenient between now and next Sunday. We grow our own trees in the backyard so getting it w...

Make an Over the Top Nativity Scene!
Most Christians put out some sort of nativity set this time of year. Perhaps several sets  of them. When my kids were young we made a point of placing our  Nativity figures in a prominent location, and tried to make an attractive backdrop and surrounding de...

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.
