Podcast: Morning Prayer March 20

“Loving God is the work of a lifetime: spending time in prayer and meditation; listening for the still small voice; learning to live as God wills, by justice and charity; contemplating the gifts we receive, the gifts that we take easily for granted. Only then do we grow near to the kingdom of God.”
— Fr. Joseph T. Lienhard, S.J.

The Podcast of Morning Prayer is here. Penitential, for Friday, of course.

The Canticle from Jeremiah always breaks my heart:

If I walk out into the field,
look! those slain by the sword

If I enter the city,
look! those consumed by hunger.
Even the prophet and the priest
forage in a land they know not.

Have you cast Judah off completely?
Is Zion loathsome to you?
Why have you struck us a blow
that cannot be healed?

We wait for peace, to no avail;
for a time of healing, but terror comes instead.

Check back later, I may finally have the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary up!
