Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
I find great comfort in the Divine Office as you may know. I have been praying the Office regularly for years now. It adds structure to my day in light of the Church's liturgical calendar. I find it especially comforting when I think that when I am lifting my prayers to God that throughout the world millions of others are doing the same thing. I also find joy in knowing that at any given hour somewhere in the world prayers of praise and thanksgiving are rising up like incense before the Throne of God. The reading below is for this Tuesday morning and while at the time of this posting I have not prayed Lauds yet I thought I should add it to give praise and glory to God.
God indeed is so Merciful and I ask you today to join with all of us and offer your prayers to Our Lord- the Divine Mercy.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

"Blessed be God who lives for ever, whose kingdom is eternal:
for he both punishes and takes pity,
he leads down to the underworld, and rescues from perdition;
no one can escape him.
Give thanks to him before all nations, children of Israel: he scattered you among them, and there he has made known his greatness.
Give glory to him before all who live: he is our Lord, our father, and our God for ever.
He will punish you for your transgressions; but he will take pity on all your sufferings, and gather you together from all the nations among whom he scattered you.
If you turn back to him with all your heart and soul- if you keep faithful to him- he will turn back to you and hide his face no longer.
So now look at what he has done with you, and praise him with all your might.
Bless the Lord of justice, and glorify the eternal King.
In the land of my captivity I trust in him; I show his power and majesty to the sinful people.
Turn back, sinners, and be upright in his presence- perhaps he will forgive you and show you his favour.
I will rejoice in the Lord with all my soul, my soul will rejoice as long as it lives.
Bless the Lord, all his chosen ones: all people, praise his greatness.
Fill your days with joy and proclaim his glory."
+ Tobit 13
