LENTCAzT 2019 – 08 Wednesday in the 1st Week of Lent: the struggle of a soul against sin

These daily 5 minute podcasts are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.

Today is Wednesday in the 1st Week of Lent.  Lenten Ember Days!    

John Henry Newman describes in poignant terms the struggle of a soul against habitual sin and the Devil, the longing of a soul for freedom.

I provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.

    I really am grateful for your LentCazts, Father Z. due to time zones, I get to see them after work and they still and centre after a day in the world.

    Ember Days and Sacred Time, thanks for these Lentcazts, Fr. Z. The Farmer’s Almanac mentions Ember Days, the Old Farmer’s Almanac has this little gem:

    “Sant Crux, Lucia, Cineres, Charismata Dia
    Ut sit in angaria quarta sequens feria.”
