Sacred Music to Slumber By

Friends, Harvey is beat tonight. It’s been a long day, starting with morning Mass. I still marvel that I can speak in absolute truth the words of a prayer found in my missal:

“Today, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, condescended to come and dwell within me, and gave Himself to me!”

Cathedral Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec

And I pray the same for each of you. If you haven’t made the daily Mass part of your life, what are you waiting for? He waits for you there. Every day, He renews His sacrifice. He longs for you to come and kneel before His altar, before Calvary itself. That is where He wants to bring you. For when you worship Him in the sacrifice of the Mass, you ARE present at Calvary. It is a mystical and beautiful moment when time and eternity meet. Go to Him if you haven’t already. There is no reason not to. He only longs to Love you from the depths of His inexhaustible Heart.

What else did I do today? The usual. Taught my kids, made some new friends, visited family… you know, the usual.

As I drift off to sleep so I can recharge and do it all again tomorrow, here is some music that helps the process along. I’m kidding myself because in five minutes I’ll be watching YouTube videos of tornados. Now that helps me fall asleep.

St. Louis IX, King of France, pray for us!
