A mainline Protestant meets the Liturgy of the Hours
Checking some search results today,  I came across this piece written by a non-Catholic making an informal retreat at a monastery guesthouse.  He joins the monks for each of the liturgical hours, and has some interesting reactions to it all. I disagree with...

St. Josemaria, Sacred Heart+Q&A
I've said it before, but summer tricks me every year, promising more time to relax and/or work on interesting projects, but in reality making both of those things more difficult: my disabled son is out of school, requiring more supervision from me, plus the...

Post-Pentecost breviary explained, plus Q&A
We haven't done a Q&A post on a long time. So here is one. Ask any question at all in the comments and an answer will be forthcoming. Here is a revised form of my annual post-Pentecost post, wherein I explain how to figure out where you are in the breviary....

Loving Daytime Prayer
We (well, I for certain) tend to take the daytime hours (terce, sext, none) for granted. They aren't very long and therefore don't "feel" as important as the principle hours of Lauds and Vespers. It's easier to get excited about the Office of Readings, with...

Why Should Prayer be Structured?
Replaying a popular post from last year. It's on that perennial question of formal vs. "spontaneous" prayer.  That was a question that a caller asked me yesterday on Relevant Radio's "On Call" program. The host, Wendy Wiese, had been discussing the Liturgy ...

Should we be appalled or just Amused?
Or just amused?  I vote for amused, because this is just too silly. The  link for this French perfume  was sent to me by the same  nun whom I mentioned a couple of posts ago. She came across it while doing research on the Liturgy of the Hours for an article...

Veni, Creator Spiritus!
Just loving today's liturgy--both Mass and LOTH. After communion today I got to sing several verses of one of my favorite chants, Veni, Creator Spiritus.  In today's second reading in the Office of Reading from St. Irenaeus, something new jumped out at me. ...

Question on Breviary Unity
A reader from Pennsylvania writes: Hello,   I am about 2/3 of the way through your book, and have been praying morning and night prayer for about a month.  Since you mention that there will be a revision of the breviary in the next few years, I searched tha...

Memorial of Our Lady of Fatima Tomorrow
A closeup of the statue Bill travels with. A long time ago, when I was a sixth grader in Catholic school, Sister had us study the conversion of Saul of Tarsus (aka St. Paul the apostle) and assigned us an essay "The Conversion of (insert student's name)" I ...

I'm Back, and a Handy Hint for Hectic Days...plus Q&A
First there was Holy Week. Then there was Easter. We do these things in a Big Way in the Sockey household, not just with spiritual activity, but with family customs, so the mother of the house was not available for a lot of blogging. Then there was my daugh...
