PASCHALCAzT 50 – Easter Wednesday: You are a holy seed, a new colony of bees, the very flower of my ministry

It’s Easter Wednesday. Christ is risen! Alleluia!  The Octave is underway.

Today we some of my own musings, along with support from St. Augustine in the 5th century.  He preaches to the newly baptized with beautiful images… including bees!

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

    Thanks, Father!

  2. Mariana2: Thank you for your “thanks”. I make these every day, and few people react to them.

    I don’t make them for reactions, but reactions help. I’ve now made FIFTY of these, for every day, 51 including the day before Ash Wednesday.

    I am going to miss these liturgical seasonal podcazts when we go into ordinary time.

  5. Ms. M-S says:

    As we’ve sloughed off most of the secular seasonal observances of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter, these liturgical seasonal podcazts really embellish our morning prayers. The passage from St. Augustine, featuring both the image of holy bees and St. Paul’s reminder that in Christianity there is neither male nor female, reminded me of Virgil’s passage in the Georgics in which he writes about the “King Bee” going to war. I wonder how Virgil would have recast that passage in light of Christianity and better observation of the members of the beehive?

    Hi Fr. Z- I really look forward to your podcasts each morning. If I ever have the good fortune to visit Rome your podcasts would be my guide as they provide off-the-beaten-track points of reference to visit. I once visited the British Museum in London with my 7 year old son. Rather than wander aimlessly we pre-selected ‘Must See’ items (He chose the ‘Mildenhall Treasure’ as he was a huge fan of Roald Dahl’s books, I chose the ‘Battersea Shield’ and we both agreed on the Egyptian mummies). We had a memorable visit without wandering exhaustingly trying “to get it all in”. Your podcast would be my guide! A Must-See for me in Rome would also be the ‘Souls of Purgatory Museum’. Anyway, your podcasts are very much appreciated.

  7. CanukFrank: Thanks for that! You are very kind.
