Reading circles

There are so many things going on on the internet that I don't know about, I am always making new discoveries. Today I noticed on the 'Friends of the Discalced Carmelites' site on Facebook that there is a Reading Circle run from the Oxford Priory in which Dr Susan Muto leads discussion of her book Enter the Narrow Gate. I have not yet read the book personally but it looks promising - it is subtitled Saint Benedict's Steps to Christian Maturity. I know there are also Contemplative Circles that meet monthly to share experiences of prayer. I think these projects are excellent.

However, we are approaching the Triduum now, not a time for too much talk or discussion, rather a time for quiet, for confession, for adoration, for gratitude for the sacrifice of Christ.
