This morning I went out and could smell woodsmoke as the morning birds began their songs.

    Out there praying Lauds in the backyard again, eh, Father?

  2. Fr Ray Blake says:

    Fr Z,
    Your at risk of becoming a contemplative!

  3. Nathan says:

    What a wonderful time of year and time of day. To follow up on Jon’s comment, one of the psalms (Psalm 62 in the old way of counting)from Lauds in the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary seems apt:

    Deus, Deus meus, ad te de luce vigilo.
    Sitivit in te anima mea; quam multipliciter tibi caro mea!

    (Oh God, my God, to Thee do I wake at break of day.
    For Thee my soul thirsteth; for Thee my flesh longeth, O how exceedingly!)

    In Christ,

  4. Diane says:

    Breath-takingly beautiful.
