I Hope to Blog More Often

I hope to start blogging on a more regular basis. I moved to my new home, a condominium in a rather sketchy neighborhood that is nevertheless within walking distance of downtown Philadelphia, in mid-July. Because of problems with various Internet providers being rather lackadaisical in setting up service, I only reconnected with the Internet at home last Saturday.

The new place is great. I have three bedrooms -- one is my bedroom, one is the library/guestroom, and the third is the chapel, where we sing Vespers together on Wednesdays (see September post below) and where I offer Mass and the Office the rest of the week.

I've always had a corner devoted to icons and prayer, since I was in Divinity School way back in the early 1990's. Since becoming involved in the independent sacramental movement, I have had an altar set up. However, this is the first time I have been able to devote a whole room (albeit a rather small one . . . ) to being a place set apart for prayer.

Once I figure out how, perhaps I will post pictures.
