OLDIE PASCHALCAzT 51: Easter Thursday – You who arrive only at the eleventh hour

From 2011:

These 5 minute daily podcasts are intended to give you a small boost every day and a little insight into Easter and its Octave.

Today is Wednesday in the Octave of Easter. Happy Easter to all!

The Roman Station is Dodici Apostoli, Twelve Apostles. The custom of Roman Stations continues all through the Octave of Easter.

A hint at the thought: “For the Lord is gracious and receives the last even as the first. The Lord gives rest to those who come at the eleventh hour, even as to those who toiled from the beginning.” – St. John Chrysostom

    The “hint” is from the paschal sermon of St. John Chrysostom, which, in the Byazantine churches, is read at the Divine Liturgy on the morning of Pascha.

    Thank you, this was so uplifting as I was driving to work, full of worries, and a magnificent rainbow appeared after an early morning rainstorm.
    I see why St John is ” he of the golden mouth”.
