If You're Alone...

...this Christmas Eve - - maybe having to work - - and you have the time, and you're of a religious bent, you might consider saying the Liturgy of the Hours sometime after midnight tonight. In Roman Catholic monasteries and convents, it is said/sung by the monks and nuns as part of their daily routine. Since I'm generally at work most Christmases, I've made a practice of saying it the last few years. I don't claim any great faith or profess to be any sort of saint, but it comforts me to do this once a year, sort of a clutching at the hem of grace.
