ADVENTCAzT 04: Wednesday of the 1st Week of Advent

This year I thought to do for Advent what I have done during Lent: post 5 minute daily podcasts to help your preparation for the upcoming feast.

And so, here is ADVENTCAzT 04, for Wednesday of the 1st Week of Advent.

Today I include a reflection by a priest who died under the Nazi regime, Fr. Alfred Delp, in the book Advent of the Heart: Seasonal Sermons And Prison Writings 1941-1944. Kindle HERE. UK HERE.

    Thank you, Father, for this. Someone once defined “evangelization” as one begger telling another where he found bread. I’m ordering Delp’s book.

    You have read that he was imprisoned in the Tegel Prison. I wonder if he was there at the same time with two other famous inmates, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Blessed Bernhard Lichtenberg. q.v. “Justizvollzugsanstalt Tegel” in the German Wikipedia; good article in the same on “Alfred Delp”.
