Devotional Tidbits: From the Benedictine Breviary

                                                                 Ales diei nuntius
The stately rooster, herald of dawn,              --Prudentius
With piercing voice announces day:
But Jesus, herald of God's own Light,
Calls out to us, "Do not delay."

"Awake," He cries, "'tis time for LIFE,
Away with beds and lazy sleep;
Lead sober, pure and upright lives,
For I am near, your souls to keep."

             From Tuesday Lauds, Benedictine Breviary
