Today’s PODCAzT, on the eve of my trip to the USA for Msgr. Schuler’s funeral, features s. 3 of St. Leo the Great (+461), on the anniversary of his election to the See of Peter. In light of what we hear from St. Leo, I also talk about Msgr. Schuler.
In a providential coincidence, as I recorded the last segment, the bells of the Church of St. Agnes at the P.za Navona began to peel. I opened the window so you could hear the bells in the background. This beautiful church, which I see out my window, is where you can venerate the skull of St. Agnes herself. Sant’Agnese in agone is thought by some to stand at the place of St. Agnes’s martyrdom. How appropriate that it should be the lead out for this PODCAzT, no?
