Since I am not yet in the seminary and am able to utilize much of my free time for prayer, I have devised a daily schedule. I follow these prayer times daily unless I happen to be working at the time of the prayer. However, for the most part, I am able to pray most of my prayer schedule daily.
- 7:30 AM Lauds in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel
- 8:00 AM Rosary in the church during Eucharistic Adoration
- 8:30 AM Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
- 9:00 AM Terce in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel
- 12 Noon Sext
- 3:00 PM None
- Sunset Vespers
- 9:00 PM Compline
I really like this current schedule because I am able to pray all of the daytime offices: Terce, Sext, and None. If I arrive at the Adoration Chapel early I spend extra time in prayer for the end of abortion and for the poor souls in purgatory. Below is a copy of a prayer that I really enjoyed praying today. I ask everyone reading this blog to pray it.
Prayer to Jesus Christ:
O Jesus, it is not the heavenly reward you have promised which impels me to love you; neither is it the threat of hell that keep me from offending you. It is you, O Lord, it is the sight of you affixed to the Cross and suffering insults; it is the sight of your broken body, as well as your pains and your death. There is nothing you can give me to make me love you. For even if there were no heaven and no hell I would still love you as I do. Amen.
