This section will now be used to journal my study of the book “Seven Sacred Pauses” [click image to learn more about the book] ~ which is the text we are studying as we ‘Begin the Oblate Journey’ proper. The book focuses on how to bring the beautiful practice of praying the Hours into your own life, home and most importantly your heart. It has been suggested that we may like to keep a journal and as I can type faster than I can talk [just about] it makes perfect sense to keep it on here where I’m more likely to spend time and where others can benefit from my musings.
Here is a brief resume of the study ~
“St Benedict places communal prayer at the centre of the everyday life of a monastic. The rhythm and shape of the liturgical seasons add both colour and texture to all that takes place in the monastery. Some writers speak of the daily praying of the Psalter as the ‘heartbeat’ or ‘lifeblood’ of the community.
As you begin the Oblate journey you are invited to consider the rhythms and patterns in your own life. Macrina Wiederkehr uses the framework of the Monastic Hours to unfold her understanding of the ways in which time and place can be sanctified in daily life.” ~ courtesy of Turvey Abbey.
