In today’s PODCAzT, we hear from St. Augustine of Hippo (+430) who contributes to the second reading in today’s Office of Readings. The selection is from Bk 10 of the Confessions.
I use that as a spring board into a look at the issue of the fruits of Christ’s Sacrifice. Were they "for all" or "for many"? When the new translation for Holy Mass is released we will no longer hear "for all" but "for many", which is more accurate. Still, we need to understand what is at the heart of the debate. Joseph Ratzinger will help us figure this out along with a paragraph from the Roman Catechism of the Council of Trent.
This PODCAzT was a bit of an experiment. I changed a couple of my recording techniques and also just "winged it" with many notes for my comments, just to see if I could speed up the production time.
