Evening Prayer (Compline) for September 22nd.


The ancient office of compline reflects the simplicity of monastic bedside prayer. It invokes the presence of God, to accompany and sustain us through the hours of darkness. Compline also gives us a discipline that empowers us to negotiate the “dark” segments of life’s journey. It allows God’s love to transform the deepest darkness of our own souls, our most secret faults, and bring us to the light of eternal day.
