August 20th and 21st
Catherine McAuley Quote of the Week
"...amidst all this tripping about, our hearts can always be in
the same place centered in God for whom we go forward or stay back."
Saint of the Week
St. Pius X
1835 - 1814
What do you think when you hear the word routine? Dull, boring, and repetitions? That's certainly one meaning, but routine can also mean prepared and disciplined, such as a finely choreographed dance routine. It can also mean regular, like the routine involved in getting ready for bed. And sometimes it can mean all three!
St. Pius X, who is best remembered for encouraging frequent Holy Communion and for lowering the age of First Communion to about seven years old, also encouraged routine reading of the Scriptures. In fact, he urged daily reading of the Bible as part of his motto, "Renew all things in Christ." To promote more regular reading of Scripture, he set up a commission to revise and correct the official text of the Bible used by the Church in addition to establishing the Biblical Institute for scriptural studies.
Getting in the habit of reading uplifting spiritual works such as the Bible requires preparation, discipline, and regularity. First we have to prepare our minds and our hearts. Second, we have to be disciplined. It's all too easy to put off exercise in all forms, and spiritual reading is definitely mental exercise. Finally, we must be regular. If we try a hit-and-miss approach, our learning will also be hit and miss. In short, we have to establish a routine if we want to make any concrete spiritual progress.
Do I have any kind of a routine for regular spiritual reading?
What spiritually uplifting books would I like to read over the next year?
