Vigils

What does it mean to be a person of prayer?

The hours of prayer in the monastic tradition begin with Vigils between midnight and dawn. We awaken to join where God is already at work. We watch, we wait in the dark like a seed in the ground, a child in the womb, an owl on a branch.

How does your prayer begin? How do you look for and join what God is already doing?
