Hello, everyone! Blessings and peace in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Risen Lord!
Last week I returned from visiting Conception College Seminary in Missouri, USA. I enjoyed spending time with the Benedictine monks and visiting the minor basilica. Overall, during my visit I've realize how important prayer truly is, even though I am not completely supportive of some of the aspects of the seminary there.
While there, I purchased a copy of Christian Prayer, which contains the complete Liturgy of the Hours. I have been praying the Liturgy of the Hours at Lauds (morning), Vespers (evening), and Compline (night) ever since I left the monastery. While at the monastery, I prayed with the monks at Lauds, daytime prayer, Mass, Vespers, and Compline. It was so beautiful to hear them chanting the Liturgy, equating to the best part of my experience there. And, it was so wonderful to see men in full habit walking around and bearing witness to the Faith of the Universal Church.
Grace and peace!
