Father Alek Schrenk of Pittsburgh graciously joins us to discuss the theology and liturgy of the traditional "Emberdays" (also called the Embertide). We discuss why these seasonal devotions are important to recovering a spirit of penance, vocation, sacramentality, and integral ecology in the modern world. Father offers some recommendations for priests who want to restore the practice of the embertides in their parish.
Spiritual Practices for the Embertides:
Winter (Advent) Embertide | Tradistae
Spring (Lent) Embertide | Tradistae
Summer (White) Embertide | Tradistae
