ADVENTCAzT 2022: 01 – 1st Sunday of Advent: “Memento mori”

A series of short daily podcasts for Advent 2022.

Today, we hear about an ancient element of today’s Mass, tied to the harrowing Gospel for Mass, Luke 21:25-33. We have a reminder about inevitable death, a good point to contemplate during Advent. We hear from Bl. Ildefonso Schuster and Pius Parsch. We begin also to contemplate death.

Roman Station: St. Mary Major

During this podcast you will hear a snip from the album of music for Advent by the Benedictine nuns of Gower Abbey, the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles.

    I believe you understand Spanish! This is from a Spanish site called: SECRETUM MEHUM MIHI

    Debe haber una error, o tal vez el éxito fue demasiado grande con eso del Black Friday (así le dicen incluso en español). Nos referimos a la traducción en español del más reciente libro del cardenal Robert Sara, “Catecismo de la Vida Espiritual” del cual, si se hace la consulta en Amazon, informan que fue publicado el 24 de Noviembre pasado, pero ya hoy no tienen existencias.
