Vespers at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery


Today is the Golden Jubilee of the founding of Our Lady Of The Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama. As part of the celebration, Vespers was chanted during the televised Benediction. 

I've mentioned in the past that I pray The Liturgy of the Hours at home.  It was an awesome experience to chant Vespers with  Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration and The Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word for Vespers. Yes, I know that I was not physically with them, but then again, neither were the millions of others who also joined them through EWTN.
I like to think that there was a chain of prayer encircling the world this evening.   And part of me, a rather large part of me,  wishes that I could have heard all those voices joined together in prayer.  
I'll bet it gave Satan one heck of an earache!
