Coming back on line!

After a just under two year sabbatical, I am bringing back up “Don and His Spiritual Journey”.

My status update in life, and first new religious post will begin tomorrow, the 22nd of June 2017, and I hope frequently as time allows!

This past two years of silence has been “deafening to me”, and I need to get back on track!

    Yep, I have this here to write, have a lot I want to say, but just don't sit down and do it. I need to get over worrying if I am going to upset someone with what I say and just come out and write it........ Most of what I…

    A couple of months ago I was informed that the Bishop of my Dioceses was not wanting to accept my vows this coming June for the 4th year as a Hermit (one more after that and I would have been able to give permanent vows).  So, after much prayer, contemplation…

    At  the Saturday Easter Vigil before Easter of 2008 I was accepted into the Catholic Church.  This was a happy day for me, with my Superior General there as my Sponsor into the Church, my mother, father, sister and niece all present to watch me enter into the Church. This…

    Well, for the past month and a half, I have been a bit slack on my spiritual life.  I haven't really been reading much in the way of theology or within my faith (although I have done some "recreational" reading), and I have missed more of my prayer hours that…

    Hello Folks! So, I am back!!  It has been a fast and busy eight months since this board was up and since I was active on the blog.  The reason for this is adjusting to my new life and getting things in order.  I think I am there now. I…

Prayer Life

Well, for the past month and a half, I have been a bit slack on my spiritual life.  I haven’t really been reading much in the way of theology or within my faith (although I have done some “recreational” reading), and I have missed more of my prayer hours that I would have liked.  That has started to change today though, I am going back to my prayer life, although on a different schedule than I had as a Hermit.

I will not be getting up at Midnight to do the Office of the Readings, but will be doing them right after getting up at 5AM.  The Church I go to now does the Morning Offices prior to Mass, so I will be doing this Hour with the Congregation present at Mass.  The rest of the hours will remain at or close to their normal times. 🙂

In Christ,

Don

    Yep, more changes in my life! I am in the first stages of moving fully into the life of a Diocesan Hermit.  By that I mean, I am living the Rule of life, but must live it for six month to two years under Private Vows at which time, if…

    Well, let me rephrase that last post.  Religious life isn't over for me.  I have continued to do the Liturgy of the Hours (LOTH) (7 set prayer times a day, following a set rubrics) at least the four major Hours, and often all seven.  I still read the Bible daily,…

    This past week I shut down my primary blog, however, I kept the domain and email services.  I was using PowWeb, which at one point was a good service, but they have gone down hill over the past couple of years, which was a partial reason I let them go. …
