#246 – The Bride of Christ

Saint Kassia, rejected by Emperor Theophilos, but proclaimed by the Eastern Church was one of the most important hymnographers in medieval Christianity. Her writings and work attracted the attention of the people of God of her time and continue to inspire Christians today.

    Welcome back! I’m very happy to discover that you’re podcasting again! As a fairly new Catholic, and someone who learns best through stories, I’ve found CUTH to be consistently engrossing and informative. Thank you for finding the time to get back to it!

    As a Catholic who loves history, Church history, and the Byzantine tradition, I am very happy to see Fr. Beshoner return to producing podcasts. As a teacher myself, I appreciate how overwhelming that role can be, especially after a change in duties, such as teaching abroad to moving back to the home campus. My prayers to Fr. Beshoner and to all who appreciate these podcasts.
