New Sungenis vs Dimond debate
#19
For what it's worth, I find peace in reciting the Office. I think of Jesus and the Apostles in the NT where it says they or Jesus went up to the Temple to pray.
The Temple prayers were the psalms and the canticles, and we today pray exactly the same psalms and canticles. I sometimes realize I am but a single person in a line going back to S. King David, through the First and Seond Temple, to Jesus, the Apostles, after it's destruction up to S. Benedict who codified  his Office, to today. An unbroken line for 3000 years. Think of all the tribulations from then until now. The Church of God has been under attack forever. Sometimes it was down to a handful like in the time of the Arian heresy. The Lord said He would not leave us orphans, and even if these times are perplexing and nearly impossible to figure out, He will not leave us confounded forever. It reminds me of the yiddish-ism "are your arms too short to box with God?".
This stuff can not be fixed by us except by prayer. Pope Benedict isn't going to call any of us and say come on over and straighten us out on this will you ?
I'm not saying to forget about it ,but do not let it consume you. It is the responsibility of the Pope, Cardinals, and Bishops to fix this. Hold fast to what you have received.
