For the past several years, I've committed myself to reading passages from the Church Fathers during the Daily Office. Here is one such reading.
It’s hard to believe the Covenant relaunch happened a little over a year ago. But we’re here to stay, and we pray that God will use our humble efforts in the renewal of his Church and its common life.
We bear the weight that surrounds us in the daily trappings of life: waking, sleeping, eating, drinking, working, concerning oneself with the plight of one's neighbor. These things are a joy at times, but at others they sit heavily across the shoulders.
Unlike Saul Goodman, there is for us an ashen existence that is humble, repentant, and thankful, aware of grace and full of grace.
