Today it is the First Sunday of the month... and the significance of this for our family is that Sister Maria is reading our letters, and responding! She does that every First Sunday. Our parish began holding Compline chanted in Latin on First Sundays. Needless to say the choice between feeling close t our dear daughter in prayer vs. Super Bowl was a no-brainer. I am delighted to feel united in prayer--the same words in Latin-- with our daughter. And this include the Alma Redemptoris Mater in the solemn tone--at home we sing th simple tone, so this icing on the cake.
