Episode 67: Reasons for Hope
1 June 2021 | St. Justin Martyr | Spokane, Wash.
Recorded for the first time in the great state of Washington (where I’m attending a liturgical conference, as well as some friends’ ordinations), this week’s episode features the themes of transition, divided hearts and misguided mercy in chapters 4-6 of the Silmarillion, centered around the question: In the end, will we regret anything that has happened in the past? We also touch on the relationship between faith and hope, two virtues of fundamental importance for the Christian life, and examine the life of St. Justin Martyr, who illustrates a life lived in the splendor of them both.
Opening music: “Ecce sacerdos magnus,” introit for the Mass of a Confessor Bishop, composed by Tomas Luís de Victoria, sung by The Cardinall’s Musick, dir. Andrew Carwood, 1998. All rights reserved.
