St Bruno A Life Hidden In Christ

By your work you show what you love and what you know. When you observe true obedience with prudence and enthusiasm, it is clear that you wisely pick the most delightful and nourishing fruit of divine Scripture.
~St Bruno

Today the Church celebrates the feast of St Bruno, founder of the Carthusians. My fellow blogger, Jeffrey at Secret Harbour has a beautiful post on this saint. Since nothing I could post here could come even close to doing this great saint justice, I refer you to Jeffrey's post and wonderful blog dedicated to this saint and the order Bruno founded. Anything you want to know about St Bruno and the Carthusians can be found at Secret Harbour. Thank you Jeffrey for the beautiful writings you post there.
I will end by simply wishing St Bruno a happy feast day~ now go read Jeffrey's post; you will be glad you did!

St Bruno,
Please pray and intercede for us. 
Help us to find God in the quiet and solitude of our souls.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
