Building on the theme of Lent, this 3rd week of Lent focuses on the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15). The theme of the podcast is “Coming home.” On this 50th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising against China, Fr. Vazken adds a candle on an Armenian altar as a gesture of solidarity. Listeners are invited to go beyond the story of the Prodigal and see themselves as reflections of the characters – whether the envy of the older brother, the wasteful natures of the younger son, or ideally, in the compassion of the father. Also – the flight of the bumble bee casts a stinger at the honey as a “Lenten food”?
A fitting podcast for the mid-Lent journey.
