Norcia Prayer Life Interrupted

I often tell a story about Norcia and its prayer routines — a story involving Kris and I wandering into the San Benedetto Basilica in Norcia on a morning to be swollen into worship by the Benedictine monks praying and chanting Psalm 119 in Latin.

Sad to hear that an earthquake destroyed the basilica and our prayers go out to the wonderful people of Norcia.

That crypt is no doubt not being used after the latest earthquake, though I’m certain as I can be that those monks will still be praying — ora et labora. We join them.
