“What is given us by revelation to estimate and measure this world by? The event of this season—the Crucifixion of the Son of God.”

Happy Palm Sunday, everyone.

We’re kicking off Holy Week with a sermon given by Newman for the last Sunday in Lent. This is the first of three episodes featuring our podcast’s patron and marking the Church’s celebrations of Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter.

During this time when a great many Catholics will be unable to attend liturgical celebrations, it’s our hope that this podcast may be just one of the resources to help you keep fast and festival, and to observe these high holy days within your own homes and with your own creativity.
