Today was fun! Hope you enjoy! Here is what we did today:

*Divine Office Morning Prayer

*Daily Mass Readings and reflections on “good will” and the effects on our soul when we lose this “good will”

*News & Commentary

What I wanted to do, but which we did not have time for, was a decade of an “intentional rosary,” in which every Hail Mary is prayed for a specific intention. I did not make this Rosary praying technique up; I got it from Sirius Catholic Channel’s Gus Lloyd, who hosts Seize the Day in the mornings. If you haven’t checked him out, give him a listen; he’s a delight to listen to.

Without further ado, here are the links to the news articles I talked about today.
