Loved it. Any more Don Camillo coming soon?
Thank you, Fr. Z. Listened, learned, enjoyed. Especially the chants. Lots of things packed in there. Your efforts are appreciated.
Thank you, Father Z-that was a very cool podcast! I like it when you read St. Augustine!
Dear Fr. Z. (Father, bless!):
Your sermon was everything that I have wanted a sermon to be, and just about everything that otherwise has been lacking in the sermons that I have heard from most Latin priests: patristic, rich with learning, and woven well with Holy Scripture and Church Teaching.
I particularly valued your presentation of the distinction the Blessed Augustine made between the active life (whose exemplar was the Apostle Peter, [who loved Jesus]) and the contemplative life (whose exemplar was the Apostle John [whom Jesus loved]). Your excellent insight is that the participatio actuosa sought by the Council Fathers of Vatican II should begin with an active participation, but whose ultimate result should be interior and contemplative participation. By doing this, those who love our Lord will in turn be loved by Him.
Of course, it does not hurt that you have an excellent speaking voice, a superb singing voice (in my opinion, your chanting was quite as good as that of the cantor who sang with you that day), and one of the best Latin accents that it has been my pleasure to hear.
Thank you for this podcast. It was just about perfect for a little contemplative time during my lunch break.
