Into Great Silence
I happened upon the broadcast of this extraordinary documentary last night on EWTN. So, for 2.5 hours all other considerations in our house were suspended. Still reflective upon the experiences of prison missionary work and some considerable inner reflection upon how living in community as a Christian believer literally demands and requires humiliation, even if by one's own hand, this film brings solace and succor.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti et vobis, fratres,
quia peccávi nimis
cogitatióne, verbo, ópere, et omissióne:
mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa.
Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem,
omnes Angelos et Sanctos,
et vos, fratres, oráre pro me
ad Dóminum Deum nostrum.
