LENTCAzT 2020: 15 – Wednesday in the 2nd Week of Lent: Monotonous Christ

It’s Wednesday in the 2nd Week of Lent.

The Roman Station is Santa Cecilia in Trastevere.  I have a personal relationship with this basilica.

Today Fulton Sheen talks about how monotonous Christ’s life was.

In these podcasts I sometimes use snips from this lovely disc of music: Motecta Trium Vocum.  Beautiful.

I provide these podcasts especially in gratitude to benefactors.

    Thank you, Fr. Z. Pray for Cardinal Pell, everyone.

    “The Roman Station is Santa Cecilia in Trastevere. ”

    And yet, pilgrims are forbidden to go to the station church and cannot receive those graces.

    Truly sad.

    That marble replica of the Saint is haunting. Looking at it everyday during lent would be fruitful for me.

    A small replica of that statue of St. Cecilia in death lies across the top of the interior of the entry door into Dowd Chapel at Boys Town. No one would see it upon walking into the chapel, but it cannot be missed walking out through those doors. The first time I saw it, I caught my breath. So haunting. So rich.
    .
    When I first visited that chapel, my parish in another state was St. Cecilia. That parish could be in the running for the ugliest church architecture in the country. A musician friend remarked once that the parish with the most horrifying music has the patron saint of music as its namesake. Much is upside-down there.
    .
    At that time, I tried in vain to find a replica of St. Cecilia in Trastevere, with the hopes of donating it. I gave up, though, partly because my family knocked the dust of that place from our feet. The straw that broke the camel’s back? Our pastor refused to distribute the Holy Eucharist on the tongue because of the flu in 2009. He thought he had the authority to do so.
    .
    A direct comparison of St. Cecilia, Trastevere and St. Cecilia, from my former parish. I ask, which one will inspire vocations and conversions?
    .
    Oh, well, I can’t make photos show up in the comments…
