    These thoughts on the rule of our lives are meant to be heard over and over. That’s what I do –replay the old throughout the day along with hearing the new!
    Thank you .

    The first three presentations suggest that this will be a very worthwhile series, and I look forward to the remainder. I am 76 and a retired priest, but the questions posed are those which I am asking today. Thank you.
    On another matter, the background music includes passages of organa. What is the source of this particular selection?

      Hi Robert,
      Thanks for your comment. We’re delighted to know that the series is proving helpful. The audio selections are taken from the Brothers’ CD “Guard Us Sleeping” which you can purchase through Amazon. The selection from day 3 was a chant setting of Psalm 31 written by one of the SSJE Brothers.

    David, Curtis and Geoffrey,

    Thank you so much for these first reflections. Each one of them has been clear and has opened up the importance of a rule to me in new ways. I find I am savoring each one throughout the day and often returning to it. Much good food to chew upon! I am so grateful for these Lenten gifts.

    This is what I really value about the Church’s call to reflection during Lent. It is so easy to get sucked into living by other principles! Dictates of work, home life, and other activities keep us all moving from deadline to deadline– or it feels that way. Periodically considering our values and priorities can help us recognize when we are making assumptions about life that “ain’t necessarily so”, and be more mindful about the choices we make.

    I am thoroughly enjoying your “Framework” as we begin Lent. The reflections are raising needed questions in my own life. Thank you!

    A very accessible and common-sense approach to something that can be intimidating. Thank you.
