2013 Spiritual Practices

It is a new year, and I'm incorporating some specific spiritual practices into my day. I am trying to pray morning and evening prayer every day, having just made my book of Christian Prayer a denim cover from an old pair of jeans.  The local parish I go to for Daily Mass 3/x a week, currently, does Morning Prayer after Mass and that has helped me learn my way around the Liturgy of the Hours in book form.  The priest from my own parish read part of the Office of Readings at Mass the other day, which reminded me that it exists in the back of the book of Christian Prayer and I'm trying to remember to read that as well.

I'm also really liking the Ignatian Daily Examen.  At the highlighted link, I clicked on Handouts on the Examen  and printed out Finding God in All Things.  I tuck that into my Liturgy of the Hours book and go over it after I read Evening Prayer.

Ignatian Spirituality's website has lots of resources on the Examen.  Everyone is sure to find one that will suit their lifestyle and place in the spiritual journey.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
