    Read this little book in preparation for and on a Quiet Retreat It was a helpful overview of the monastic hours of the day and the gifts each hour brings A great book to read to help re cover a sense of the rhythms of our days and years I particularly like the chapter on the hour of Prime in that it is a deliberate assigning of the work for each day that begs one to pause and consider what is to be done The reminder to not begin in the middle, b

    This is a warm and wise little volume, beautiful and useful even to an atheist like me though admittedly I m the kind of atheist who has a curious notalgic fondness for Catholic ritual and a fascination with monasteries Using the canonical hours, also known as the Divine Office, the authors offer what is basically a framework for reflection, mindfulness, and intentional action amid the routine of an ordinary day Frankly, if you are able to read arou

    Excellent audio book which I wouldn t mind owning as a written text as well, for the sake of all the wonderful quotes This is the second time at least I ve listened to it and it serves as a encouragement to see all work as prayer when properly, i.e., reflectively done It also creates a desire to listen to Chant Last time I remember going out and purchasing a bunch of CDs This time, I just need to get them out and start listening to them again.This book is w

    How does one live in touch with eternity from day to day How can we enter into Kairos even as we go about our work and busyness in our daily lives In this lovely little book, Brother David Steindl Rast O.S.B breaks open the day into its seasons , each with its own message, grace, contemplation, and action He explains how the Liturgy of the Hours or the angel announcing each hour invites each of us to a contemplative living out of each day.From centering ourselves in the si

    Excellent Book I had always thought that all of the monastic services were essentially just so many prayer services during the day Even though much of my own practice comes out of the monastic tradition I just figured that there was no way for me to do that many prayer times each day so I did not pay attention to what they were about Steindl Rast took me on a sacred journey through the hours of the day and in the process I learned that each of those hours had a special focus,
