The Pondering Heart

Fr. Sam Edwards, one of our future (God willing!) Ordinariate priests, has an apostolate called The Pondering Heart. I think it’s been mentioned before on this blog, but I want to call it to your attention again. It’s reflective of our Anglican patrimony, and helps chart a journey into the prayers of the rosary. Although some of what is included provides opportunities for ecumenical use, there is a single destination – namely, a drawing closer to God by deepening our love for His Blessed Mother.

By all means, go to the website of The Pondering Heart. Read through the excellent material assembled by Fr. Edwards. Include as much as you can in your personal and corporate devotions. And consider sending in some support for the apostolate. After all, the laborer is worthy of his hire…
