Compline - Wednesday 21st April 2021
This Compline from a America Trappist Community.
The Trappists, officially known as the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance .
"I hope you can enjoy this format of the Divine Office of Compline. It is the last of 7 Offices of the day for the Monks and Nuns. Their days work and life is fitted around these Offices and each service is beautifully set for the time of day. Example at Vigil's we can show God our willingness to praise him in the very early hours 3:30am when most are asleep and the office of Compline is our final prayers before retiring, where we can ask God to protect us while we sleep. It is a wonderful structure for life, even if this modern day world that fights this type of devotions as old and antiquated. I have found that the old ways can be the best, even if they are demanding effort to complete. "
