Virtual Abbey

I’m a Twitter person and I follow a lot of interesting people and groups. Among those groups and individuals is Gratefulness is a part of Brother David Steindl-Rast’s ministry. I can’t remember when I first came across Br. David’s work but it is an important stop for me each day and with Twitter it’s possible to get uplifting tweets many times each day. Frequently these tweets carry me over rough spots or add some deeper meaning to each day. I re-tweet many of their tweets to people who follow me. They thank me at least weekly and suggest people follow a group of us who regularly retweet them. One of the groups they thanked this week was Virtual Abbey (@virtual_abbey). Curiosity got the best of me and I had to check out their website. What I found was an incredibly rich ministry dedicated to praying the liturgy of the hours on Twitter and Facebook. What an incredibly rich use of social networking to reach people. I started following them immediately on both Facebook and Twitter and have been blessed by tweeted psalms.
