Site Updates: Reminder about 2011

Just a reminder that a couple of new things will begin on January 1, 2011.

“The Holy Gospel” will move to Sundays, beginning January 2.

“Gleanings” (Tuesdays) will be focused upon quotations from the desert Fathers and Mothers of the fourth and fifth centuries.  Their wisdom and witness set many trajectories for the Christian faith, and it is good to connect with this portion of the great cloud of witnesses.  We’ll begin this on January 4th.

Fridays will now have a new blog:  “Benedict’s Rule.”  We will read this ancient rule of life together throughout the year.  We’ll begin on January 7th.  Far from being an ancient text, it remains a valued guide for personal and group spiritual formation. 

If you want to be part of this reading group, you can purchase an inexpensive edition of the Rule entitled, RB 1980–The Rule of Saint Benedict in English, edited by Timothy Fry and published by The Liturgical Press.  It’s easily available online.  I think it costs about $3.00.

Now’s a good time to “tell your friends” about Oboedire.  Think of it like a Christmas present that will “keep on giving” all year long.  And it’s free!  🙂

I’m looking forward to continuing the journey with you in 2011.
