Silence before Vespers. A Benedictine oblate blog

Vespers is at 5:00 pm at the abbey that is about 40 minutes from my home. I arrived about 4:45 pm today so I had a few minutes to sit quietly and shed the world for this briefest of “things given up for Lent.” But in terms of drawing closer to Jesus’, that short time in silence before Vespers was more effective than the other things I am doing/giving up for Lent.


The picture is of Jesus by *clairity*. It is not of St. Leo Abbey in Florida, but the picture is somewhat similar to some of the stained-glass windows at the abbey church.
