Its a contest of Hallmark vs the Church this Ash Wednesday, as Valentine's Day falls on Ash Wednesday. As the Bishop and the Vicars note Ash Wednesday is in many ways a celebration of love and forgiveness. We can turn towards one another and offer both contrition and forgiveness in this Lenten season. While we must abstain from meat and fast this February 14th; Ash Wednesday and the love we celebrate on Valentines are not opposed. Ash Wednesday and Lent invites us to go deeper into the meaning of love; to the eternal Love of God, and to the Ressurection of Christ at Easter.

This episode Bishop Daly welcomes to the show local author Marja Henderson. Marja has recently published a book entitled Long Shall You Live

 

"Long Shall You Live is a memoir following the lives of a young couple, Mienus and Suze, during the Nazi occupation of Holland during WWII. It traces Mienus’ involvement in the Dutch resistance in Vlaardingen and Rotterdam as a young patriot, and his subsequent struggle to survive the horrors of Buchenwald concentration camp. This story shares the love and the faith of these first-generation survivors following their liberation, and the challenges they faced immigrating to the United States. The book continues with the personal story of the author’s life as a second-generation survivor, and the fulfillment of the commitment she made to her parents “never to forget and never let it happen again.'"

Long Shall you Live is also available on Amazon.

Join Bishop Daly and the Vicars as they discuss the relationship between faith and reason. Our Catholic Faith is not grounded both in faith and reason which reinforce one another as we live out our faith. St. John Paul II wrote an encyclical letter in 1998 entitled Fides et Ratio, Faith and Reson which stressed their mutual importance to the Christian life. 

"Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves" Fides Et Ratio
