Prayer and Contemplation

Lectio Divina

Sunday: The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

John 6:33 (New Living Translation)

Monday: Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them. 

Mark 9:8 


Continuing Day, On Pilgrimage, and McKenna, Mary.


Sunday: Mass at Old Mission Santa Barbara. The main church and side chapel were teeming with people to overflowing. Communion must have taken at least 15 minutes. Reading in the afternoon, plus writing and conceptualizing of The Caperone. Celebration of a novice brother's birthday in the evening, followed by holy hour and evening prayer.

This morning: Bro. Ignatius Feaver begins his presentations on prayer and contemplation. We will have another session with him this afternoon and again on Tuesday morning in preparation for our day of recollection, which begins Tuesday evening.

My spiritual director, a Franciscan friar stationed at Old Mission Santa Barbara, has confirmed our first meeting, which will be tomorrow at two.


Brisk and bright.
