Yes, I know that in 2022 the First Sunday after Christmas is replaced by the Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord, but that does not mean that the publication of our new Podcast Homilies – Psalter Series will not post episodes for both First Sunday after Christmas Day and Second Sunday after Christmas Day. The Psalm appointed for First Sunday after Christmas Day is Psalm 145, one the the six doxologies which end the book of Psalms. On this occasion there are two illustrations, a page from the Stuttgart Psalter, produced circa 820 A.D. in the Scriptorium at the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Paris, and the Psalter of Henry VIII, which is Ms. Royal 2 A XVI, British Library, London, England, produced around 1640 but possibly a decade earlier. Both illustrations will be used in the new AIC Bookstore Publication, The Prayer Book Psalter: Picture Book Edition.
I am pleased to report that progress on the Psalter book has gone extremely well and much faster that I thought possible. The book will be published in a single volume with 450 pages plus color cover. The proofreading and corrections are complete, but there are some technical issues to be resolved and a higher-quality replacement image ordered from the British Library for an illustration of Psalm 81 from the Lucas Psalter, made in Belgium between 1480 and 1490. I hope we can have the book in print during Epiphany season, which begins on Friday of the coming week.
To all who follow this web site, on behalf of The Anglican Internet Church, Inc., I wish each of you a Happy New Year for A.D. 2023.
Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
