Psalms as Personal Prayer
On my previous post, John Burzynski told me about  this blog post by a nun in (I think) England. It's about the many ways to understand the psalms as we pray them. It's long for a blog post but worth reading.

The Mystery of the Missing 6th Week in Ordinary Time
I just got this question from Tami:  Hi Daria, I have a question : why do we not have a week six of ordinary time this year? Week five was just before Lent and Monday (May 16) starts week seven. Does it have to do with where Easter fell this year? -Tami Whe...

Bono, U2 and the Psalms
It's not too often that you find the Psalms intersecting with pop culture. I wasn't very tuned into pop music in the 80s and 90s, and only slightly more so now that my kids  occasionally share with me a pop song that they think I might like. (Occasionally t...

St.Mary Magdalen now has a Feast
St. Mary Magdalen's day on the liturgical calendar has now been elevated from memorial to feast. The reason, according to Archbishop Arthur Roche, is that she “has the honor to be the first witness of the Lord’s resurrection.” “She is the witness to the ris...

Another day to be grateful for the Liturgy of the Hours, since I was unable to get to mass. But the office of the day kept this lovely event present throughout my day of work. This is the day for the slothful to ask Our Lady for help with their besetting si...

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...

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.
