I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks…life is really such a zoo! Today at Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival, RAnn asked us to weigh in on the Liturgy of the Hours: do we use it? Have we ever?
I tried it for a period of time, and I still like it, but morning and evening prayer are a real time commitment and in this stage of life I find myself more in need of stillness–brain and heart stillness–than the structure of the divine office. My favorite part by far is Night Prayer. That formula: “May the Lord grant me a restful night and a peaceful death,” is just so beautiful.
Okay, so here’s what I’ve been up to the last couple of weeks:
It’s Down syndrome awareness month, so I’m posting weekly about Julianna. This week it was about Julianna’s Fan Club.
I wrote about the phrase “It Is What It Is.” And then Colleen wrote her own post in response. 🙂
We celebrated my grandmother’s memorial in the last couple of weeks, which inspired A Fry Pan Can Be A Holy Thing.
And in case you’re interested, here’s Your Weekly Fix of Kid Funnies.
I like having this way to catch up on what I’ve missed.
Thanks for the mention and the link. 🙂
My favorite is Night Prayer too but I rarely get to pray it.
