LITURGICAL LIVING


if you follow my posts, you may have noticed i often post a daily bible study notebook page on social media that looks like this.



Liturgical Living? what is it? well, it's the best way to daily read the bible in an easy to understand, goes right with the calendar, beautiful kind of way.  in fact, if you diligently study the word this way, you will have practically learned every word of God from the bible in three years. it's brilliant.



where am i finding this study? 

did you know that this is the universal bible study all over the world?

EACH & EVERY DAY?



when i was protestant i was told that Catholics don't study the bible. i nearly starved to death with the same studies over & over. i couldn't find the recipe. i knew it must be out there, i dreamed of something more organized, something that could tell me what was happening in the bible in real time, & how to actually apply it to today.... but it was hidden somehow....



the recipe for the fullness of bible study

& of the Christian life can be found here:






and here:



and here






and here



and here:





check out the saint of the day.
(it's not just on valentine's day. there's more. there is a saint of the day every day!





there are more.  i shared my favorites.



What's so cool about this daily universal bible study?

well, if you show up at a catholic church every morning, someone reads it to you! if you stick around after bible study, (the entire mass IS biblical) then the fulfillment of the bible study comes to a mountainous peak when the priest consecrates the bread like Jesus told them to in John 6:53-59! because, not only is Jesus the Word made Flesh, but He's also the Bread of Life (Eucharist) that is consecrated to become so by the priest during the mass.
it's the most amazing gift there is in the Christian life! i try to make it to daily mass as often as possible. the sacrament of Communion in the Catholic Church is what sustains me. Jesus fuels me through it & strengthens me with perseverance & consistency to take this journey to sainthood. i could not do all that i do without the gift of the sacramental life of the Catholic Church. i know, i tried. i was pentecostal, baptist, lutheran, methodist, & non denominationals of all sorts. the Catholic Church literally saved my life & brought order to quite a mess. in fact it's done so for many many different sorts of people out there. Tolkien, Vince Lombardi, G.K. Chesterton, the Saints, (especially St. Paul, Clement, Polycarp, Ignatius of Antioch.)


this post is getting a little long, so i'll close it in by giving you a little look at my daily morning schedule & then leave you with some more links & helps for you to look at.




My Liturgical morning life (if not pregnant or nursing a newborn)

4:30am      rise, get dressed make sign of the cross with holy water & say "come Holy Spirit" 3 times (start warming oven for breakfast) make coffee & tea.

5am           read daily readings & saint of the day, then share daily liturgy & saint of the day on social media. start to pack internet or local sales orders if needed. 

5:15           prepare breakfast

5:30           wake children (when milking cows this will change) physical exercise until readings.

5:35           make sure they all dip in holy water on the way down the hall, say "come Holy Spirit" 3 times

6:00           read readings out loud as a family & listen to Franciscan Media Saint of the Day.

6:20           eat breakfast as a family, pack lunches if needed. PRAY MORNING OFFERING

7:00           feed animals, gather eggs, clean eggs, package & sort. do a chicken head count. this will change when we get lambs & cows.

7:30           family prayer, st. Gertrude prayer, Fatima prayer, a decade of rosary or so.... Glory be.

7:40           if some have classes off the farm that day be prepared with that schedule for them, get the rest going on their scheduled home school lessons.

8:00          go to mass if possible. if not, do house chores while grading & instructing home schoolers. find out if any neighbors need lunch. grab a book from the "mom book basket" to study up on good spiritual reading. adjust chalkboards & post different bible verses around the house, make sure everyone is reading their assigned chapter book for the week. assign virtue cards for the week as well. try to squeeze a rosary in here for the souls in purgatory, & if moved after spiritual reading, make some Catholic art. check emails to see how many new soap or art orders are in. balance checkbook.

11:00         um... elevensies....

12:00         lunch & cleanup. 

1:00           classes for the day for schoolwork should be close to finished, time for farm chores, skills, & tasks. knitting, yarn spinning, gun cleaning, hunter safety, welding, oil changing, seed saving, tractor driving, weed pulling, planting or harvesting depending on season, soap making, homestead management, cooking, life issues, make artwork for the Lord, serve someone in need in the community, especially grandpa or any local farm widows, remind to pray regularly through this. make it all a prayer for the Lord. Ora Et Labora.


evening :    DAILY FAMILY ROSARY & dinner as a family a MUST.


*ADD TO SCHEDULE:

*TRY TO MAKE IT TO AT LEAST 2 DAILY MASSES A WEEK


*FIRST FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH: ATTEND MASS & THEN EUCHARISTIC ADORATION


*CONFESSION ONCE A WEEK


i'd have to list a bunch of different schedules per different crop or season here on the farm, so i'll add that evenings are filled with farm chores, service cleaning, family meal, family rosary, clean up, baths, & story time.



a book i really enjoyed that i'd like to share with you to help in creating your own family rule of life is right here:




she lists Mother Teresa's schedule in there!




another book i'd recommend is this one. We and our children

i hope this post has been very kind to you in helping you to find the way to study the bible daily & start living a Christian life that serves the Lord. i hope you discover the riches of this secret saint recipe. i also hope that is glorifies the Lord greatly. if it weren't for the Lord's guidance & help. i would still be fumbling around in the dark looking for a bible study that made sense & taught me how to truly live the Christian life in all it's fullness.


if you have any questions about living liturgically, start going to daily mass! pick up a word among us or a Magnificat so you know what the readings will be every day. go click on the saint of the day at franciscanmedia.org every morning. it'll change your life. Come Holy Spirit!




Blessed Be the Holy Names of Jesus, Mary, & Joseph!





your sister in Christ,

Hallowmas




Happy Hallowmas/All Hallow's Eve!


Hallows' Eve is so cool, it's similar to Christmas Eve! without that incredible Christmas Eve night, Hallowmas wouldn't be happening.... because of Christ, we have a great day we can celebrate where many sinners became Holy Saints. We as a family celebrate Hallowmas similar to how we celbrate Christmas with a big feast, treats, & lots of books, cider, hot chocolate, music, & joy. I try not to focus that i lived as a pagan most of my life & unknowingly didn't even celebrate this amazing holday properly. This Tridium (Hallowmas, All Saints' Day, All Souls' Day) is jam packed with so much history & so much hope for us all to someday be a part of this great cloud of witnesses..... to become part of Christ's beautiful saint family with the very Blessed, Most Beautiful Queen of Heaven & Earth as a Mother who contains so much tender mothering compassionate love, it'll amaze even the most stubborn of hearts.

Happy Hallowmas everyone. May this tridium be filled with much contemplation, repentance, & resolution for you & yours.

Blessed be Jesus, Mary, & Joseph.
