Sunday Snippets-- A Catholic Carnival

Thanks, many thanks to RAnn for hosting Sunday Snippets  every week on her blog.  I've discovered some wonderful blogs here.  How about sharing yours?

Liturgical Day, Actual Day

My Liturgical day begins before my actual day. I get up at 4:00 in the morning and pray the Office of Readings, using the online IBreviary. I then go back to bed until 6:00. I make my Morning Offering, pray the Angelus, have a cup of coffee, and then pray Morning Prayer.
I find the IBreviary so convenient!
