Top Liturgy Hits

In social media, there’s a Throwback Thursday tradition of looking back. In that spirit, I’ve been encouraged to look back at the statistics and see what people have actually been reading on this website.

I’m heartened.

Over the years, the greatest interest has been shown in The Liturgy of the hours, the Daily Office, Daily Prayer. I really want to encourage people to renew the discipline of daily prayer. If you put such interest into the search box on the top right of this website, you should find lots to assist your journey.

Worship resources are next, with lots of interest in particular resources and reflections for individual seasons and celebrations.

My (online free) book, Celebrating Eucharist, is very popular. I’m delighted. It looks like at least 50,000 people have made use of this online.

Silent prayer is a focus. Again, I couldn’t be more delighted. I want to help renew contemplative life. Silent Prayer is followed pretty closely in popularity by my introduction to Lectio Divina – the discipline of using the Bible to hear God’s Word to each of us individually.

The Chapel is highly popular, with its provision of spiritual disciplines online.

Possibly the all-time most popular blog post (as opposed to the above resources, which are undated pages on the site) is the reflection on “Lord it is Night“. My April Fools’ blog posts, of course, are always read far and wide.

If you are new here – welcome. Do look at these interests – and do try the search box and the tabs at the top of the website. Regulars, you might find some things you had missed.

Let us continue to pray for those who gather around this website. There are people who are committed to pray daily for all who gather and all who visit here. This is a website where we can share light more than heat, with our real, ordinary names, knowing that these are real people, each on a spiritual journey, each with their own joys and burdens.

    It’s salutary to see these *reading* statistics, Bosco. I am often discouraged that it is posts on controversy and ephemera that seem to attract the most *comments*, so it is encouraging to imagine a great many people reading and reflecting profitably, in silence, on what is of enduring value. (Or, in words that I and other BCP fogeys have been praying all this week, that “our hearts may surely there be fixed, where true joys are to be found.”)

    Did I just ruin that happy reality by commenting? 🙂

    1. Mostly, Jesse, the commenting numbers are not an indicator of how many people are engaging – I’m possibly more aware of that, because I see the statistics (over a thousand people read this post). Also yesterday, about ten times that number engaged with a monastic video clip on the facebook page. So, yes, be heartened with me. [You may have noticed that I rendered this week’s collect the same as the fogeys]. Christ is Risen.
