PASCHALCAzT 51: Easter Thursday – You who arrive only at the eleventh hour

These 5 minute daily podcasts are intended to give you a small boost every day and a little insight into Easter and its Octave.

Today is Wednesday in the Octave of Easter. Happy Easter to all!

The Roman Station is Dodici Apostoli, Twelve Apostles. The custom of Roman Stations continues all through the Octave of Easter.

A hint at the thought: “For the Lord is gracious and receives the last even as the first. The Lord gives rest to those who come at the eleventh hour, even as to those who toiled from the beginning.” – St. John Chrysostom

    Thank you again, Father! The thought from St John Chrysostom is really rich and full, and overflowing with hope. In your copious free time (insert winking emoticon), it would be really cool if we could get the information on the music you selected for the Lentcazts and Paschalcazts. It would make for a great playlist for a “Catholic ipod.”

    In Christ,

    In Christ,

    Thanks from me, too, Fr. Z. I love hearing about the station churches and how the relics of the martyrs, saints and apostles were so cared for and protected. I dig the bells at the end of your Paschalcazt, too.
