Description

21 November 2021 | Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe | Menlo Park, Calif.


On this last Sunday of the liturgical year, we discuss the ending of The Hobbit, the eucatastrophe at the Battle of Five Armies, and the homecoming of Bilbo. What is the difference between deus ex machina and the providence of Deus Creator? What does it mean that Christ is King “already, but not yet”? And while we’re asking big questions: what is the purpose of life? Listen to hear Tolkien’s answers (and mine) to these and more than these!


Opening music: “Christus vincit (‘Laudes regiae’),” sequence for the feast of Christ the King, sung by Sequentia (dir. Benjamin Bagby) and Dialogos (dir. Katarina Livljanić), 2012. All rights reserved.
