26 February 2009
It arrives in the evening of the 24 and hangs around until the evening of the 26 (cf. page 1437 in Treasury of Daily Prayer). I used to dread its coming. So repetitious, it seemed. More fool I! The longer I have prayed it, the more I ache for the days when we do pray it. Countless treasures packed into those days. This month I was especially grabbed by vs. 71 on the morning of the 25th: "It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes." But so many other goodies besides. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever! Amen.
