Make America Contemplative Again

A friend shared that thought tonight on Twitter. It resonated for me. Right now I’m listening to Gregorian Chant and though I understand few if any of the words I am filled with peace. It is the end of the day and I am reminded of a time I spent at Mount Saviour Monastery in nearby Pine City, New York. They end their day beautifully with one of the monks playing a harp and reciting the compline prayer.

Come down we beseech you O Lord upon this house and drive from it all the snares of the enemy. Let your holy angels dwell in it and keep us in peace. And May your blessing be with us always. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
