Podcast Homily for Fifth Sunday after Easter – Psalter Series for Morning Prayer

This week’s Podcast Homily for Morning Prayer in our new Psalter series is focused on Psalm 118, a Psalm of David. Psalm 118, one of the most-qu0ted Psalms is a highly-Christological Psalm with many phrases understood as references to Jesus Christ. The illumination used. in the companion book, The Prayer Book Psalter: Picture Book Edition, is Psalm 118, below trimmed and formatted at 150 dpi for easier transmission on the Internet. The illustration is from the Stuttgart Psalter (Cod. Bibl. Fol.23-F0lio 131r, Wurttembergische Landesbibliothek, Stuttgart, Germany).

Work continues on Angels: the Book, with all images selected through the chapter on Revelation.

As always, thank you for your interest and support. Glory be to God for all things1 Amen!

Work continues on the newest book project: Angels: the Book. At this time, with most of the text completed up to the “Angels in Revelation” chapter, there are 226 pages with over 120 illustrations. I’m working on the final selection of images for Revelation, choosing among five sources from the 8th to the 14th C.
