Do you have a list of the longer scripture readings for the morning and evening prayers as they appear in the one-volume edition of Christian Prayer?

Admin reply: I'm afraid all that I have is already on the web page.

Actually, I don't even own the American one volume breviary! I have an African version plus the one I'm currently using which is the Japanese! (Morning prayer can take up to two hours if there are a lot of unfamiliar words...)

Hi Russ
I was searching for an article online about a Rich Japanese Woman who left her riches and lived with the poor but instead I found your website.

As I see it.. The Protestants think they are right but history will disagree. The Catholics are right, they just don't know it.

Your story was so inspiring, welcome home.

Noel

Admin reply: Thanks for the message! It sounds like you might be researching Kitahara Satoko whose story is in the book:

He Russell,
Like your articals a lot. Living in tanzania i miss the dutch tradition of singing the genevan psalms introduced by John Calvin. In your article i missed this form of singing the psalms. I find it so beautifull knowing that my grandmother any many generations before her have sang those psalms. Just like we do now. Accompanied with a big pipeorgan its a joy to listen and praise God.

Admin reply: Thank you for your message! I imagine the culture in Tanzania is very different from the Psalm singing and pipe organ culture of Europe!

Thank you for your great wealth of sketches. I learn a lot from your work. I study your style and try it. I mostly paint watercolor plein air. I am a pastor in San Diego. Thank you for your testimony about your faith in Christ. I would like to visit you some day.
Luis

Admin reply: Hello Pastor Luis, Thanks for the kind words. I think San Diego is an excellent place to sketch. I have some family in that area. May God bless you!

Russ, We were, in 1895, the first monastery founded by St. John's, Collegeville. They also opened a priory in Tokyo, Trinity Benedictine Monastery. It was moved, relatively recently, to Fujimi and the monastery was awarded major prizes for it's architecture. It looks to be about 30 miles N; NW of Tokyo.
You could celebrate the St. Benedict blessing there..... Aelred

Admin reply: I had heard there was something out there in Japan. It sounds definitely worth a visit if I can find a train going out in that direction. Thanks!

Wonderful site, Russ! I use your helpful articles on music for the liturgy of the hours when i help present a weekend confernce on the hours for the Archdiocese of Settle. I am choirmaster of our Benedictine Abbey, St. Martin's. I'll refrence your whole website as "required reading" when I next meet with the conference participants in mid-September.

Admin reply: Wow, that's great to hear! I don't get to communicate Benedictines in Tokyo -- and I've really tried find one in the past when I needed to find a priest to consent to "properly" bless my St. Benedict medals! So this is a great honor to finally hear from one. Thank you!

You may enjoy the following, recalled when reading "A Strange Wind Blowing":

I work as a Federal contractor in schools on a reservation and we often have strong, strong winds on the high desert and next to mountains. My young students walk between buildings with me during the day.

Occasionally, as we are blown along or into or sideways, I ask a child if he/she would like to have a string tied to a button and go sailing off. To see things. To try flying. Just to do it.

Some children may briefly consider the idea while most others tend to shrink back and hurry on.

One little boy's face lit up and with a faraway look in his eyes when I asked him the first time and he was ready to go. And he always is.

This is the student I talk to about the world.

I want to thank you for the enjoyable hours I have spent on your site. And now my return to sumi-e painting as well as the soon-to-be owner of a yatate.

Admin reply: Thank you for the great story! I myself often had dreams of flying because of the wind when I was a kid.
