LENTCAzT 2018 08 – Wednesday in the 1st Week of Lent: Never ending combat

Today is Wednesday in the 1st Week of Lent.   The Roman Station is Santa Maria Maggiore. 

In gratitude especially to benefactors who help me and this blog, during Lent I’m once again offering 5 minute daily podcasts to encourage you in your own use of this holy season.

Today some unusual music, a setting of Venantius Fortunatus’ O gloriosa Domina, differently.  St. Anthony of Padua’s mother sang it to him and he died while singing it himself. This is a great disc.

US HERE – UK HERE – It seemed appropriate

Some sharing options...

    Tempura has special meaning at our house, as my wife is Japanese. Each Feb 6 (St. Paul Miki) we have Japanese food, and always include tempura. It’s a very concrete way to connect today’s meals to the mission fields of St. Francis Xavier.

    Beautiful music! And elegant Collect from the EF. However, in our culture, tempura could hardly be considered a penitential food. For me, anyway, it would be a special treat.
