I was tagged by Fr. Gregory Jensen while in Houston.


Here are the rules:

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.

The nearest book was sitting on my deck next to my computer: The Fulfillment of All Desire by Ralph Martin. Honest.

p. 123:

that you may stand before God with as much zest as reverence, not sluggish, not drowsy, not yawning, not sparing
your voices, not leaving words half-said or skipping them, not wheezing through the nose with an effeminate stammering, in a weak and broken tone, but pronouncing the words of the Holy Spirit with becoming manliness and resonance and affection,
and corrently; that while you chant you ponder on nothing but what you chant
.

Many spiritual directors, including some of the saints, offer suggestions concerning methods in prayer. Francis de Sales, very
much influenced by his own experience of St. Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises, offers some suggested structures and formats for the practice of meditation and prayer. He suggests six steps as a guide to moving through a time of prayer.

1. Play yourself in the presence of God. Remember that God is near, not far away. He is in the very depth of your heart, your spirit. Being all your prayers, whether mental or vocal, in the presence of God.

Now I'm supposed to tag 5 people:

I tag Mark Shea, Fr. Mike, Gashwin Gomes, Aimee Milburn, and Tom Kreitzberg.

Done.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
