Sunday Vespers

Sunday Vespers is a more traditional occurrence and it is marked by the recitation of Evening Prayer. This evening I went to the local nursing homes to lead this. I read the readings for the day, offered a brief reflection and intercessions and a few hymns. It was an afternoon well spent and I could tell that each of the residents were very thankful for what I was able to offer. It is sometimes difficult to get to visit each of the Catholic residents because of visitors or other events going on at each of the facilities. It is a beautiful chance to see the commitment to their faith in Jesus Christ and it is very encouraging to see someone breaking through their infirmity to show their love for the Lord.
