Critical Mass performs Your Mysterious Ways. (Under 5 minutes.)


If you missed it, this week's Catholic Carnival was at Adam's Ale. No kidding - if you have not taken a look there is a lot of good stuff there! Catholic Bloggers taking the message over the Internet!

Jack at 123 Greetings has asked me to let you know that they have Ecards with a Good Friday theme free for your use.

A number of you gave suggestions in reference to the post on praying the Liturgy of the Hours as to where you might find other (and sometimes vastly easier) sources from which to pray it. Theocoid and Mrs. T highly recommend Magnificat Magazine. It provides the daily prayers for you as well as other prayer resources. Sharon said that there is such a book as, "The Divine Office for Dummys" written by Madaline Pecora Nugent. Mrs. T and Rich recommend Universalis located to your right under "Liturgy of the Hours". Ebreviary is also located to your right.

Late entry - This morning Mark wrote to say that he has set up a whole site devoted to the Liturgy of the Hours! Here is another great site to help you pray the Divine Office.
Well, here is another quality site to give you some direction in praying the Liturgy of the Hours sent in by an anonymous commenter. (If you have been meaning to get started there is no lack of assistance. It is more rich out there than I realized!)

One last really cool site that Mrs. T points out is There are a couple of really cool things about this site. First is that it has a streaming video of a chapel where adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is taking place. That is just cool in and of itself. There is also a tab for devotions that will have, among other things, a link to pray the Liturgy of the Hours. "'s mission is that of increasing awareness and devotion to our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament. We also seek to bring the live image of His living Presence to the home bound, the workplace, and to remote areas around the world."

UPDATE: I just thought you sh0uld know that because of your response in comments, Emails, and in the pole connected to this post, this morning and last night I gave a pro-life homily. It was well recieved. Thanks you for your input.

Hey everybody, Father did good this weekend! I had just started to snooze in the middle of his homily when all of a sudden I woke up: *snore* *snort* huh? what? euthanasia? abortion? Is that substance I hear?! My heart was racing for him!

Woo hoo! Bravo Father!

Are you going to post your homily (or email it?) to those of us not local to you? :-)

Also, another good site:

It is a wealth of information!

Mark's liturgy of the hours website is awesome! I have added it on my blog. I use to just try and tell people to start at the ordinary. From now on I will send them that way!
