This page is for discussions of spiritual matters and questions on the use of a breviary (Roman, Monastic in Latin or English, etc.). I have often had the idea of some kind of community based on the ideals expressed in the Rule of Saint Benedict. I am not a monk or someone who is good at organising things. If anyone wants to come and stay in France for a little while and sing the Sarum Office with me in the chapel, he or she would be most welcome. Apart from the chapel, it’s an ordinary “lay” way of life.
That being said, most of my readers will not be travelling half-way round the world just to sing the Office or attend Mass.
It needs to be kept simple. Discuss and comment freely, but please refrain from subjects that are more appropriate in the various “blow-out” departments or the articles that appear on the blog. I suggest practical issues of using a breviary and spiritual questions that are not confidential (as between a confessor and penitent). Comments on this blog are public and visible to all.
If I can be helpful to you as a priest in a confidential way, then you may write to me privately on firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t want to organise anything. I’m not good at it. Keep it free and respect others in their spiritual progress and aspirations as Christians.
