Today is Wednesday in the Octave of Pentecost, or at least it ought to be in in the Novus Ordo as it is in the older, Traditional Roman Calendar.
This is the third PODCAzT for the Pentecost Octave.
Thanks to your feedback after yesterday’s I decided to do another. And thanks also for the donations! That helped.
Today we learn about what Ember Day’s are, these beautiful days which helped Catholics for may centuries regulate the rhythm of their lives in the consecration of the seasons of the year, and learn to use God’s creation with moderation.
Then we hear from St. John Chrysostom (+407) on the choice of St. Matthias to replace Judas who had fallen away. I have comments about bishops.
Finally, we hear a marvelous old prayer invoking the help of the Holy Spirit, appropriate in this Octave of Pentecost.
Again, your feedback will determine if I keep this up for the rest of the Octave.
