Evensong of Advent & Christmas 2013

theroamincatholic:

I assembled this Daily Office reader for December 2013. It is an expanded version of the BCP Office. It uses the Coverdale Psalter, RSV Revised Common Lectionary, traditional Office Hymns, Antiphons for the Magnificat from the Breviary, writings of the Fathers from the RC Liturgy of the Hours and Seasonal and Feast day collects from the TEC Lesser Feasts and Fasts and the Anglican Breviary. While this is an expanded Office I tried to keep it minimalistic where possible. There are probably plenty of spelling/formatting/liturgical inconstancies, but one can faithfully say the Daily Office without flipping pages or juggling books. I pray that this helps people join in the ongoing prayer of the Church. 

Blessed Advent!

Below is a little recap of my trip to Australia for Big Day Out. Decent beer, pretty good coffee (albeit too much espresso), and some really solid food surprisingly.

Cooper’s may not be a great beer, but it’s still nice to see it on tap.

Toby’s in the Sydney Airport. Kinda like Starbucks in AUS. Toby’s in Brooklyn is so much better. Really strange.
