Episode 70: The One Great Thing to Love on Earth
29 June 2021 | Ss. Peter and Paul | Eugene, Ore.
After a week away from the podcast (and a record-breaking heatwave here in the Northwest!), we’re back and skimming lightly over hundreds of years’ history in the middle chapters of the Silmarillion. Also in this episode: Tolkien’s answer to the question “what is the Lord of the Rings all about?”, St. John Henry Newman on the contrary yet vital spirits of Peter and Paul, and what lies behind the recently newsworthy doctrine of “Eucharistic coherence.”
Opening music: “Gloria” from the Lord Nelson Mass, composed by Franz Josef Haydn, sung by the Bach Choir of Wellington, 2017. All rights reserved.
