Vigils: The Night Watch

Go to to the Angels of the Hours.

Vigils: The Night Watch
Before the day’s noises begin, when it is still perfectly quiet.

Vigils is the night-watch hour, the time for learning to trust the darkness. It is the hour that calls us to set aside time outside the practical demands of the day. We are invited to connect with the dark but grace-filled mystery in which we are immersed, the sacred, timeless dimension of our lives.

The Angel of Vigils challenges us to carry the good news through the rest of the day: light shines in the midst of darkness; the very darkness shines!

In the stillness before my day begins, I open my heart
to the gift of this hour; gratefully I listen to the silence.
