Today is Thursday in the 3rd Week of Lent. The Roman Station is Sts. Cosmas and Damien.
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 we hear from 16th c. Jesuit Fr. John Gerard’s The Autobiography of a Hunted Priest
John Gerard, SJ was one of the most feared and hunted Catholic priests during the most vicious years of anti-Catholic persecution. He actually escaped from the Tower of London and continued his missions… and survived. His superiors ordered him to write his autobiography. He died at the age of 73 in Rome at the English College. The CIA even wrote about his clandestine tradecraft.
If these podcasts are useful to you and yours, perhaps you might consider making a donation. [Today, the 8th day of the month is a very thin day for subscribed donations.]
