Since Ash Wednesday, I have been trying to pray the Morning and Evening prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours. It comes as a surprise to me. This Lent, I decided to not make any grand intentions, I thought I would find something small and not significant to do. It is like coming home. I find a joy in it, that I never knew before. I have had a copy of the four volume set for quite a few years. Once every year, I will dust it off, and try the prayers. This time, I started without any pressure to perform. Could it mean I am maturing in my golden years? The good Lord only knows. If you have ever thought about praying the Divine Office, I say do so. Even one prayer a day, but start somewhere. You will be glad you did.
