Thoreau wanted to suck out all the marrow of life. Shakespeare reflected through Macbeth that all is shadow, that man struts and frets his hour upon the stage. Frost pondered the road he didn’t take while walking the fence line replacing fallen stones with his neighbor. I am a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma. I serve at All Saints Episcopal Church in McAlester, OK. This blog is my keepsake box of what I observe and question and craft as I walk my path. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. If you are on the Nashotah House campus and Michael (the bell) begins to toll (three times a day with three sets of three strikes and eighteen tolls), the custom is to stop, and say a little prayer:

    The Angelus –
    V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
    R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
    Hail Mary, full of grace,
    The Lord is with Thee;
    Blessed art thou among women,
    And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God,
    Pray for us sinners,
    Now and at the hour of our death. Amen
    V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
    R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.
    Hail Mary, etc.
    V. And the Word was made Flesh.
    R. And dwelt among us.
    Hail Mary, etc.
    V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
    R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
