We regret to report that The Angel of the Hour feature is not in service. The digital platform upon which the feature was built is no longer operating and we are considering our options. We understand this practice may be precious to you and we apologize for any disappointment.

Please feel free to enjoy the practice by listening to the chants without the accompaniment of images.

The Angel of the Hour feature is a legacy piece that was created by Brother David and the Gratefulness.org staff in the 1990’s. It features chants by the monks of Mt. Saviour monastery and images by Fra Angelico.

What is an ‘hour’? Is it nothing more than a unit of time composed of 60 minutes? Is it measured by numbers or by impressions, feelings, moods? Like the seasons of the year, the seasons of the day differ by the way we experience them. Each hour we encounter has a character and a presence infinitely richer and more complex than clock time. As a messenger from another dimension — an angel as it were — an hour has its own unique significance. Here is your opportunity to meet the angels of the hours, to befriend them, and to allow them to befriend you.
