One of our Sisters who is 98 or 99 years old now fell and broke her ankle. She is home from the hospital and has a new Kindle and wants me to show her how to use it. We are still struggling to get into her Amazon account to register it. I hope I can help her as she loves to read and this new Kindle is lightweight. I mostly read on my I-pad now but still love my old Kindle. It is so amazing that we can carry a library around with us. I use the Bible on my I-pad every day and I can highlight and save favorite passages, go quickly back and forth to consult passages that refer to other books in the Bible, etc.
I have been reading real books, too. The spiritual book that I have mentioned before and which I am still reading is We Walk the Path Together: Learning from Thich Nhat Hanh and Meister Eckart. It is by Brian J. Pierce, OP, the priest who gave the retreat I made at the beginning of June. There is a great deal of helpful hints for living in the present and practicing mindfulness. I only read a bit at a time as there is much to think about on every page.
I do think reading Scripture daily is important and hope that my readers will find time for this. I must confess that I was told some years ago to read at least ten minutes from the New Testament and ten minutes from the Old Testament each day. I wish I had heeded that advice, but now I do have the time and still neglect this daily reading. It is never too late to begin.
