Episode 73: Obedience and the Fall
17 July 2021 | Bl. Teresa of Saint Augustine and Companions, Virgin Martyrs of Compiègne | Eugene, Ore.
…the fall of Gondolin, that is, and the ruin of Doriath, which we witness in this week’s chapters of the Silmarillion. We discuss how disobedience leads to destruction and leaves the good easy prey for the wicked. Today’s saints, the Carmelite martyrs of Compiègne, provide a beautiful counter-example by their humble obedience, even unto death.
