Compline Service

For those not familiar with Compline, it was (and still is) the last service of the Monastic Day, before the monks and nuns retired for the night. It is a simple service, as those who usually attend on a Tuesday evening will testify; quiet, contemplative, peaceful, it is a lovely way to end the day.

A Prayer For 2020

Give to our God immortal praise,
Mercy and truth are all his ways:
Wonders of grace to God belong:
Repeat his mercies in your song!
