Psalm 63:2-9; Daniel 3:57-88, 56; Psalm 149; 1 John 5:3-5

Today we remember Saint George, who “gave up the rank of tribune to enlist as a soldier for christ. Eager to encouhter the enemy, he first stripped away his worldly wealth by giving all he had to the poor. Then, free and unencumbered, bearing the shield of faith, he plunged into the thick of the battle, an ardent soldier for Christ.” – St. Peter Damian

From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world. Join me in praying the Liturgy of the Hours today and throughout the Easter season.
