Breviary Sighting in hands of Curt Jester!

Well, actually it's an iPad with the Universalis app.

In this ongoing series, "How I Pray" , Thomas McDonald interviews fellow bloggers about their spiritual habits. In this installment, he speaks with Jeff Miller, a.k.a. The Curt Jester. If you visit Jeff's blog, make sure to click the wacky Rome Depot tab.

But first, Read the interview. Not only will you  feel affirmed in your Divine Offishness by this account of a celebrity blogger who does Office of Readings, Lauds, and Vespers every day, but you will also enjoy (and maybe, like me, identify with) his remarks on distraction in prayer, such as:

"Sometimes I think I should just try to set aside some time to be distracted and then prayer will intrude."

and, on Rosary: 
"Fifteen to twenty minutes of distracted prayer sometimes punctuated with actual meditation."

 Please use today's post for Q&A time--any questions you have about using the breviary, breviary app, choosing the day's prayers, rubics, or whatnot. Fire away.

Welcome, new Coffee&Canticles follower Thomas! I hope our little community here supports, and encourages your love for the Liturgy of the Hours.

Wishing all readers in the USA  a Happy Thanksgiving (and safe driving).  To the rest of you, a pleasant week and a heart ready to begin the holy season of Advent this weekend.
