  1. Can’t sleep either. I’ve never had a visitor from Antarctica. Sure they must have Internet access down there?

  2. Mabuhay from Manila, The Philippines!

  3. q7swallows says:

    Alas, soul-searching on a sick bed and cannot sleep either. Just finished watching The Story of Ruth. Marveling at the providence of God and His timing — Who so often waits until the last possible (almost impossible) moment to Act . . . .

  4. Jack Hughes says:

    Middle of the morning here in the UK

  5. JADIII says:

    Woke up at 3:30am in Kansas City… couldn’t sleep, very rare for me. Leaving to visit Conception Abbey in MO at 8:15. Maybe it’s just excitement?

  6. Andreas says:

    A snowy, gray, cold but very beautiful Advent midday here in Pinswang, Austria.

  7. digdigby says:

    Can’t sleep? Say a Rosary for those who lie awake in great pain, loneliness, unbearable grief, the terror of certain death, and above all for those who feel utterly abandoned by Man and God, as the Fatima prayer says, “those most in need of God’s mercy”. Wasn’t it St. Basil who said its at night we lay up our richest treasures in heaven? The early Christians so loved Vigils that according to Digby, the Romans feared them as ‘worshipers of darkness’. I have fallen peacefully asleep in the middle of a Rosary – Father, is that a sin?

  8. Eric says:

    Skellefte, Vasterbotten would be quite near the arctic circle. They are probably only getting two or three hours of daylight each day this time of year anyway. Might as well blog.

    Whoever you are up there amoungst the heathens, Hej! from Indiana.

  9. MAJ Tony says:

    Greetings from FOB Salerno, Khost City, Afghanistan, although it probably says Hong Kong or Clarksville, KY (our base is run by 3d Brigade, 101st Airborne Div out of Ft. Campbell).

  10. irishgirl says:

    Greetings from a frigid Utica, NY!
    May Our Lord and Our Lady keep you safe, MAJ Tony! Thank you for your service to our country and protecting its freedoms.

  11. wanda says:

    Thank you, MAJ Tony. I echo Irish Girl’s prayer and thanks. All our servicmen and women are in our prayers. God’s blessings and protection for all of you and your speedy homecoming.

    First furries here near Baltimore, MD.

  12. AngelineOH says:

    digdigby, I hope it’s not a sin to fall asleep saying the Rosary. I literally pray myself to sleep every night.

  13. irishgirl says:

    AngelineOH-no, it’s not a sin to fall asleep praying the Rosary.
    In fact, St. Bernadette of Lourdes told one of the Sisters in her convent of Nevers, France to fall asleep praying the Rosary. She said it was like saying, ‘Mama, mama’ to Our Lady. [not sure if I’ve quoted her words verbatim]
    Praying the Rosary in order to fall asleep sure sounds better than taking a pill!

  14. Linz says:

    “California, Maryland” – I had to look that one up.

  15. Harper MacDonald says:

    It’s about one-o-clock here in the countryside of California. Though, back at home in Scotland it’s. . . I’m not awfully good at figuring time difference between zones. I think it would be about seven-0-clock at night.

  16. K. Marie says:

    Dinner time in Topeka, Kansas

  17. The Cobbler says:

    About falling asleep praying the rosary — first, generally one doesn’t fall asleep on purpose, so it wouldn’t be a sin; second, generally one is not obligated to pray the rosary (barring it being part of a vow, pretty much), so neglect to finish one you voluntarily start can’t be a sin; and third, I’m pretty sure more than one mystic Saint has said Mary thinks it’s cute and the angels finish it for you, so there’s not even anything to worry about in terms of missing prayer. 8^)

    “Holy See (Vatican City State)”

    Someone’s keeping an eye on you Father.
