Holy Spirit: Remembrancer

Refresh my memory, / With words of Moses and Jesus, / To help me follow your ways / And imagine your future.

Memory inscribed in stone

On a cold Saturday morning in early March, I picked up the "Clerk of Oxford," and we drove out to South Leigh.

A pitch for memorization

Memorizing prayers, by definition, means that the prayers become inscribed on your soul in a new way. You become mindful of the words, and they come to rest in the “fields and vast palaces of memory” (see Augustine, Confessions X.12-26), engraved on the walls of those palaces for your perusal at will.
