In this first PODCAzT since I returned from my recent trip to England and, briefly, to Italy, we hear on this Feast of the Cathedra of St. Peter, a sermon by Pope Leo the Great (+461) and my translation of an article by Fr. Uwe Michael Lang from today’s L’Osservatore Romano.
I read the whole sermon of St. Leo, in both English and Latin. It is a magnificent exposition of the living role of Peter in the Church, the Petrine ministry. Leo also speaks of the great dignity of the laity.
Fr. Lang writes of the meaning of the Feast of the Cathedra of Peter, with a special reference to Venerble John Henry Newman.
