A millennial explains her fondness for the Liturgy of the Hours and how she helped unite more in prayer through Twitter.
Mother Teresa talked about the power of a smile. It can seem such a little thing, and yet it can turn a day around. It’s a reminder that you don’t need to start a revolution, you just need to be faithful to every prod and opportunity to light a candle.
Or 50 or so.
That’s the latest count for Catherine Addington, so to speak. She recently started a Twitter movement to sponsor people in praying the Liturgy of the Hours. After the #BreviaryViews hashtag caught her eye (which John De Guzman, a seminarian from Raleigh, North Carolina, tweeted, and which you can read more about below), she noticed a sale on prayer books and thought she’d invest in someone praying the Liturgy of the Hours by gifting them the Roman Breviary volume or shorter Christian Prayer book. As the requests came in, she opened it up to the Catholic Twitterverse. At my last count, 50 people were praying with new books from this great little idea. She talks about #BreviaryViews and the difference it can make in an interview.
