LENTCAzT 2020: 23 – Thursday in the 3rd Week of Lent: “The sick are an image of ourselves”

It’s Thursday in the 3rd Week of Lent.

The Roman Station is Sts. Cosmas and Damian, doctors, martyrs, twins, who were martyrs in the time of Diocletian.

We hear about how these twins were, as twins, significant in Rome.  Fr. Patrick Troadec, SSPX, gives us a splendid examination of our hearts in regard to wrongs we smart from and grudges or anger we might cling to.


Check me out on SOUNDCLOUD.

I provide these podcasts especially in gratitude to benefactors.

    Thanks, Father! Another perfect gem solid teaching with doable instructions, all to of beautiful music, beautiful mosaic, Roman and Catholic history.

    The depictions of Saints Peter and Paul in the mosaic are portraits. Peter had white (blond?) wavy hair and short beard, and Peter short (thinning?) dark hair and a longish beard.

    Outstanding, Father. I’d never think to ask Sts Damian and Cosmos for their intervention with this virus. The bit about grudges was poignant too.

    Thanks, Fr. Z, for the podcast and the St. Joseph posting.

    These podcasts (and your mini-lectures from the Holy Land) have been most instructive, enjoyable, and useful in my observance of Lent, and now, with no public Mass celebrations in my diocese, they are even more important. Thank you!

    There’s a YouTube video from Yarnhub called “When the 101st Airborne Saved Friend and Foe.” It is about the medics Kenneth J. Moore and Norman Wright in WWII, and how they set up in the church in Angoville-au-Plain to help all comers, and how they and their patients were miraculously protected from all sorts of bombs and destruction.

    The church was dedicated to Ss. Cosmas and Damian.

    Thank you Father for the wonderful information.

    Also, can you identify the chant in the background of this podcast? I absolutely love it and would like to hear more. Many thanks!
