Today is Friday in the 2nd Week of Lent. Remember your Friday penance.  Examine your consciences and…


With this audio offering, I continue a series of daily podcasts for Lent.  They are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.

I persevere in this daily project in thanks to my donors.


My audio plugin is screwed up.  If at first you don’t succeed, try again.  My stats function won’t work either!

Today I use a cut, a Stabat Mater from new CD of music for Lent by the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles.

    “In the apse is a painting of Christ collapsing under the weight of the Cross…”

    This reminds me of the prayer to the Shoulder Wound of Our Lord. Jesus revealed to St Bernard of Clairvaux that His shoulder wound was the (unrecorded) wound that hurt him the most. He told St Bernard: “I had on My Shoulder, while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrows, a grievous Wound, which was more painful than the others, and which is not recorded by men. Honor this wound with thy devotion, and I will grant thee whatsoever thou dost ask through its virtue and merit. And in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins, and will no longer remember their mortal sins.”

    O most loving Jesus, meek lamb of God, I, a miserable sinner,
    salute and worship the most sacred Wound of Thy Shoulder
    on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy Cross, which so
    tore Thy flesh and laid bare Thy bones as to inflict on Thee
    an anguish greater than any other wound of Thy most blessed body.
    I adore Thee, O Jesus most sorrowful; I praise and glorify Thee,
    and give Thee thanks for this most sacred and painful
    Wound, beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain, and by
    the crushing burden of Thy heavy Cross, to be merciful to me,
    a sinner, and to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins, and
    to lead me on toward Heaven along the Way of the Cross. Amen.

    Imprimatur: Thomas D. Beven, Bishop of Springfield, Mass.

    Thank you for the Lentcazts, Father Z. I’m listening every day.

    Native download in (newly updated) Firefox 28 under Windows 7; no problems today or for the past several days. Thank you, Father, particularly for sharing Bossuet’s meditation on the parable of the wicked servants.

    Once again, very well done! Thank you Father.

    Fr Z: I like how your Lentcazts complement each other–this was a one-two punch after Wednesdays’s Ratzinger’s reading. Strong stuff.

    Thanks, I’ve been searching for that prayer!
