Podcast Homily for Third Sunday in Lent

This week’s post is about the new Podcast Homily for Third Sunday in Lent in our Psalter series of Podcasts. This week’s reading is Psalm 34, a Psalm of David with many memoreable/often-quoted verses, including verse 11, the subject of the illumination from the Stuttgart Psalter. The homily is a little longer than usual, over 15 minutes. The illumination offers detail for verse 11: “Come ye children, and harken unto me * I will teach you the fear of the Lord” (1928 BCP text). A holy man, symbolizing Christ, is seated in front of an altar with children at his feet and four men and three women looking on. The color palate includes blues, greens and reds that would later be featured by the Impressionist school.. The facial expression of each character is unique and very untypical of other works from the same time period. I thank the Wurttemberghische Landesbibliothek for providing access to the image. This add almost 200 other images are featured in The Prayer Book Psalter: Picture Book Edition now on sale (March 2023) through my Amazon Author Central page.

Thanks for your interest and support. Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
