Recently when I pray Morning Prayer, I’ve started calling out one or two of the antiphons to Isabella, having her repeat it to me, and then I repeat it after each verse of the psalm and she echoes it back. She loves doing this, always smiles as she says the words of the prayer. And I love hearing her pray with me.
My favorite was the first time I did it. It was during the Easter season, I believe. She was being very chatty as I was trying to pray and so I started reading aloud very slowly so as to engage her. I said, “The cross of the Lord is the Tree of Life.” and she echoed back, “Cross is Tree of ‘ife!” and repeated it again and again with very little prompting from me.
