Description

3 July 2021 | St. Irenaeus of Lyons | Eugene, Ore.


This week, we come at last to the romance at the heart of the Silmarillion, the saga of Beren One-Hand and Lúthien Tinúviel! We discuss the themes of complementarity, interdependence, and conquering through weakness which play out in this beautiful story of love and loss. Also, we read a fragment of St. Irenaeus on the Gospel of Matthew which sheds light on how God looks upon our own weakness and the imperfection of our hearts.


Opening music: “Beren and Lúthien,” written by J.R.R. Tolkien, arranged and sung by Clamavi de Profundis, 2018. All rights reserved.
