Hermit at Prayer

What does my prayer life look like?
This is still in the design phase but as of right now it looks something like this:

Daily Prayers:

  • Mass and Holy Hour
  • All 7 hours of the Divine Office (Liturgy of the Hours)
  • Rosary
  • Divine Mercy Chaplet
  • Lectio Divina
  • Meditation and Contemplation as directed by God
  • Spiritual Reading
  • Reading the Lives of the Saints
  • Ejaculatory prayers as inspired
  • Fridays, I add the praying of the Stations of the Cross

Special Daily Prayers:

  • Monday - Prayer for Priests
  • Tuesday - Mother of Perpetual Help
  • Wednesday - Prayer for Humility
  • Thursday - Litiney of St. Joseph
  • Friday - Stations of the Cross


  • Sacrifice of the world in favor of solitude with God
  • Life of simplicity
  • Offering up of daily labor
  • Wednesdays and Fridays are both fast and abstinence
  • Fridays, I may include a short meditation on the passion with use of a discipline (discipline is used meditatively and not to inflict pain or cause any harm to the body)


  • Daily Eucharist
  • Confession every 2 weeks or as needed

Purgation and Integration:

  • Always work on eliminating concupiscence and all attachments to the world as a life long task, especially working on the 7 Capital Sins.
  • Always work on integrating the Theological & Cardinal Virtues, the Gifts & Fruits of the Holy Spirit, the Spiritual & Corporal Works of Mercy, and all moral virtues in general
