Today I’m doing a different kind of show to bridge Advent and Christmas. I’m calling this episode, “The Three Wisemen”. My three guests are not here in the studio, nor are they joining me by phone. Instead, they are with us in their preaching. This episode is built around Advent and Christmas Sermons of the Saints. My guests will be the great British intellectual and churchman St. John Henry Newman; the martyred pastor of Munich, Fr. Alfred Delp; and the martyred archbishop of San Salvador, St. Oscar Romero.
Here’s what we’re going to do. I’ve selected some excerpts of Advent and Christmas homilies from each of these great preachers that I want to share with you. I’ll mix in a little of my own commentary, sort of as a first pass at really pondering the depth and power of their preaching.
One of the things I love about hosting this show is that I get to interact with some brilliant, inspiring, and persuasive leaders in the Church, who help us all to be more knowledgeable and discerning about Church Life Today. Today’s three guests—St. John Newman, Fr. Alfred Delp, and St. Oscar Romero—will do no less for us, through the enduring power of their preaching.
