Father, I loved the translation you used in this reading! It’s worlds better than the translation in my breviary. Was it your own translation, or is it a version available in print somewhere?
And as a fan of Augustine, thank you so much for the beautiful reading of my favorite part of his Confessions! I’ll say a decade of the rosary for your intentions as thanks for the wonderful podcast. God bless, and safe travels!
I suppose this is a good time for you to leave Rome, as it’s probably getting quite hot there, and I’m sure the Sabine Farm is much cooler.
And I must force the cosmic clock to speed up toward the release of the Motu Proprio. You will all thank me one day.
Thanks for another great podcast.
On what recording can I find that wonderful Viennese/Schubertian-sounding (how appropriate!) arrangement of Holy God, We Praise Thy Name?
Father: What translation of Confessions are you using? Or, are you
translating it yourself from the Latin? My English version is wretchedly dissimilar to what you are reading.
Fantastic reading, Father.
Referred to three English translations, and without a doubt Father’s is the winner++++++++++unbelievable!!! When will you have all of the Confessions available??? Seriously, you need to get a publishing agent working on this – and on your other translations…
Thank you so much for all you offer us!
A movingly dramatic recitation of a great passage.
(At the beginning of that podcast you pronounced the last letter of the alphabet CORRECTLY!)
