In the evenings, my family has been listening to different musicals as a part of musical enrichment. As I prepared dinner Sunday night, we listened to Fiddler on the Roof. I had been thinking about blessings and started singing the Sabbath Prayer song in my head. If you are not familiar with this song, here are the few lines I kept singing over and over:
Do Catholics have a breviary containing evening or night time prayers? My understanding is that the BCP condensed various Catholic prayer books that existed in the Middle Ages. In the evening prayer section, there are prayers for protection in the night etc, which may be derived from medieval Catholic prayers.
