The Morning Offering as a Daily Renewal: Michael Ortiz on Like the First Morning

Can a 20 second prayer transform your day? How about your son’s? Heights teacher and author, Michael Ortiz, discusses how a century old norm of piety–the Morning Offering–allows us to renew each and every day while placing our prayers, works, joys, and sufferings on the altar.

Our guest this episode is Mr. Michael Ortiz, longtime Heights teacher and recipient of three National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships. Michael had his children’s novel, Swan Town: The Secret Journal of Susanna Shakespeare, published in 2006, and in this episode, discusses the topic written about in his most recent book, Like the First Morning: The Morning Offering as a Daily Renewal.
