Praying God's lullaby

Updated: Aug 27, 2019

My name is Robert Gee. I currently am pursuing my religious vocation as a Franciscan Postulant. Born in the Midwest, I have spent most of my life living between Chicago and San Francisco.

I would like to share with you the practice of Compline. I started praying Compline on a regular basis when I entered into religious life at the beginning of April this year. It is the final Divine Office of the day, and is a simple, beautiful service. You will find it a very relaxing practice. Someone once told me it like a lullaby from God. Please give it a try. You will find this a perfect end to your day.

"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28-30).

--From An Order for Compline in The Book of Common Prayer

(Robert Gee will be noviced at the Brother’s Centenary Mass on September 14, 2019 at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields. He will take the name Brother Gregory, SSF.)


+ May our holy father Francis pray to the Lord that we may have the grace to observe the Gospel with greater devotion.  Amen.
