Great Read

What’s So Great About Christianity by Dinesh D’Souza.

I took this with me while riding my bike.  You can go for miles, all the while wishing you could upload D’Souza directly into your brain.  He takes on the atheists, the “brights”, modernists, progressives, Darwinists and sundry hogwash.  Great discussion of Galileo and his reformation, the Crusades, the Inquisition and Darwin vs. Darwinism.

What If God Was One of Us?

Paul Mayers reflects with this silent video: What If God Were One of Us?

Pluggin' Away

Prayer in the wee small hours, at Adoration or on the go, what a blessing!  Listening and praying with a community at prayer, that’s what DivineOffice.org offers.  It’s a banquet that Lent allows, even encourages!  It is also good to remember that the Liturgy of the Hours is meant to be prayed aloud and in community.

Dane , the producer, offers free daily inspirational scriptures and prayers. His crew is talented and dedicated to bringing us Divine Office.  They are “promoting the tradition of praying always through these ancient treasures of the Church.”  This is not a blessing for Catholics only but for all Christians universally.

Lent is here.  “There are few better ways to improve your observance of this season then to pray the Liturgy of the Hours as often as your schedule allows,” according to Dane at  Divine Office.org.  He says, “Instead of laying something down for Lent, you may want to consider taking something up… a renewed and invigorated dedication to prayer.”

“We hope everyone will enjoy these free daily inspirational scriptures and prayers. Listening to psalms in the morning as you start your day or at the conclusion in the evening is a wonderful form of prayer.”Dane
