Episode 60: Changed, Not Ended
10 April 2021 | Easter Saturday | Eugene, Ore.
In this week’s episode, I share about my second Holy Week in a row in quarantine and the joy of coming to Easter after several days in the “tomb!” Then we come at last to the end of the Lord of the Rings and discuss the hobbits’ return to the Shire through the theme of change. What does it mean for us to come back changed from life’s journey and find that home has changed as well? Finally, at the end of this Easter Octave, we discuss what an octave is and why we have them in the life of the Church.
Note: I apologize for the audio quality in this episode - I’ve had to record it with my computer’s built-in microphone after the catastrophic failure of my external mic during the first take this morning! Hopefully I will have a replacement before next week’s installment.
Opening music: “Quasi modo geniti infantes,” introit for the Second Sunday of Easter, sung by the Choeur de l’Abbaye de Solesmnes, dir. Dom Joseph Gajard, 2017. All rights reserved.
