One thought on “The Collect Call: For Aid Against Perils”

  1. Perhaps the “for” means “because of,” as in “I quickly muted The Collect Call, for I heard my boss coming in”?

    Shameless plug: The thing that has kept me praying the Office has definitely been my Rule of Life through the Order of Julian. The Associate Rule requires praying only one of the Offices/Hours each day. The Rule and the community help a lot, but it is still making a commitment, and of course ya’ll have jobs and stuff.
