I am a avid follower of Liturgy of the Hours but I recently got a new job and am having a problem!
I was wondering if you had any suggestions for someone that is a full time student and also working the 3rd shift (8PM-6AM) on the weekend, so basically I switch from nighttime to daytime often.
I’m interested in what time each day you would have me pray Morning Prayer, (1) Daytime Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer. Please be specific (If i’m going to bed at 6AM saturday morning and should pray Night Prayer before going to bed…do I pray Friday’s night prayer…or Saturday’s night Prayer)
For example, here is my past weekend and this upcoming week:
Friday (Sacred heart of Jesus): I get off work at 6AM, Mass at 7:30AM sleep from 8AM-12PM ish.School from 1-3. Nap until 7. Back to work at 8PM.
Saturday (Immaculate Heart of Mary/12th Sunday of Ordinary Time vigil): I get off work at 6AM, sleep from 7AM-2/3 PM. Mass/Confession at 4 back to work at 8PM.
Sunday (12th Sunday of Ordinary Time): Off work at 6:30 AM. Sleep from 7-3. Mass at 5PM. Back to work at 8PM.
Monday (Feast of St. Thomas Moore): Off work at 6:30 AM. Sleep from 7-12. School from 1-3. force myself to stay awake until 10PM and go to bed.
Tuesday: Normal day(awake around 8AM, sleep around 10PM)School from 1-3
Wednesday(some feast of John the Baptist right? :)): Normal day (awake around 8AM, sleep around 10PM)School from 1-3
Thursday: Normal day with an all-nighter for work at 8PM.School from 1-3
Any help would be appreciated. Anyone know a Saint of staying up all night working/studying?
