LENTCAzT 17: Friday of the 2nd Week of Lent

These 5 minute daily podcasts for Lent are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.

Yes, this is the Feast of the Annunciation.  But this is a podcast for LENT.

Today is Friday of the 2nd Week of Lent. The Roman Station is San Vitale. The Titular Cardinal is Adam Card. Maida, Emeritus Archbishop of Detroit.

A hint at the thought: Would that our women would learn from the example of modesty here set before us.

    Thank you for these podcasts, Father. They truly are very interesting and also a reminder of the beautiful history of our Church.

    Question for the room at large: whose Stabat Mater is playing in this podcast? It’s not one that I am familiar with, and I know more than a few.

    ok, you did it, you brought up the M word…buckle up ;o)

    did you know there is a Papal decree regarding Modesty?

    and that it commands priests to preach on this subject on Marian feasts (like today! so maybe you do know…)

    and prohibits girls’ participation in public sports?

    and that it also prohibits immodestly dressed women from receiving the sacraments, acting as sponsor, attending Catholic schools, or even *entering a church*?

    here it is (it’s also in the Vatican archives, but I like the English version because it uses fun words like “brazen impudence” & “pestiferous”) http://www.olvrc.com/documents/Modesty.Pius.XI.pdf
