PODCAzT 50: St. Leo the Great on Peter; Fr. Lang on the Cathedra of Peter

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.

Follow along in Latin!

    I’ve been patiently waiting the return of podcasts. I loaded it to my Ipod so I could listen while doing laundry!

    The homily of Saint Leo the Great was magnificent. It was nice to hear the full text, as the Office of Readings had only part of it. Thank you, Father Z!

    An excellent podcazt. Are text versions of the english translation(s) available online? What were the musical selections? I especially enjoyed the baroque.
