Yesterday my buddy Jack and I took a trip down to the Abbey of the Genesee. While there we observed two of the divine hours… Sext (Noon) and None (2pm) by joining the monks in chanting the chosen Psalms for that day.

It is one of my favorite things to do when I visit there and I even purchased a handwritten copy of the Psalter some years ago which I use when observing the hours.

So, in order to experience this a little yourself, my challenge for you is to choose a psalm, any psalm, and spend at least 10 minutes meditating on it either in silence or rhythmically reading it aloud.

Take notice of the words, the voice of the author, what images come into your mind, and what God might speaking to you through it.

Feel free to share any insights in the comments section. Happy Friday!!!
