The Podcast Homily in our new series of homilies for Epiphany based on the appointed Psalm reading is now available using links on the Welcome/Home and the Podcast Homilies-Morning Prayer pages. This week’s Psalm reading is Psalm 42 (Quemadmodum) and Psalm 43 (Judica me, Deus), which are the opening Psalms of Book Two in the Prayer Book Psalter. These two Psalms are beautifully illustrated in our upcoming book, The Prayer Book Psalter: Picture Book Edition, which sent for a final proof this week, with proof arrival anticipated for Monday, 1/23. If no glitches are found, we could have the book in print and available from my Amazon Author Central page before Fourth Sunday in Epiphany, the final Sunday in the season in A.D. 2023.
In the book, readers will find three beautiful and inspiring illustrations of Psalm 42, including a representation of the “my soul” (Vulgate Latin: anima mea. Psalm 42: 1, 2, 8). Also found in the book is an image of Psalm 43 from Les Tres Riches Heures du duc de Berry (or The Very Rich Houres of the Duke de Berry) prepared by the Limbourg brothers for John, Duke of Berry, between 1412 and 1416), which is folio 61v, Musee Conde, Chantilly, France, via Wikipedia Commons.
In additional news, our seasonal book, Easter: The Resurrection of Our Lord in Scripture, Art & Christian Tradition is almost complete with 168 pages and about 120 illustrations. It should be in print well before Easter Day.
As always, thank you for your interest in and support for this online ministry.
Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
