#83 Midnight Special: Among the Shadows

Davenport's Story

3 months ago

The "Midnight Special" is a new segment where I read a story for the podcast in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. With me, as always is my faithful Labrador, Griffin.

This episode features a ghost tale from L.M. Montgomery (surprisingly), "Davenport's Story."

Happy listening, ideal for when you can't sleep yourself perhaps.

#72 Beautiful Christmas Meditation

"Bethlehem" by Father Faber

7 months ago

A meditation from the book Bethlehem by Father Frederick Faber.

Father Faber (1814-1863) was an English Priest. He had been baptized as an Anglican, and converted to Roman Catholicism in 1845. He is best known today as a composer of hymns, the most famous of which is Faith of our Fathers, often sung on All Saints’ Day. His book, Bethlehem, could perhaps be best described as a love song to the Holy Family. It is almost as though he was able to bring the book to the stable in Bethlehem, laying it next to the manger as the three wise men offered their gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Our passage begins shortly after Our Lord’s birth. Our Lord and Our Lady are now asleep. The songs of the angels have returned to Heaven; from whence they came. The shepherds have returned to their flocks. The Three Kings have not yet arrived. It is quiet. The only person awake is Saint Joseph, who has assumed the incredible responsibility and privilege of being the foster- father of the Son of God. Even though he is a simple man, a carpenter by trade, God has given to him deep insights as to the nature of the Child that he will raise, as we hear in Father Faber’s Bethlehem.

#68 The Treasure of Abbot Thomas by M.R. James

Manual for the Treasure Seekers

10 months ago

Mr. Montague Rhodes James was a medievalist scholar and provost of both King's College and Eton College. His stories have a strong foundation in historical research with an element of truth at their core, making their plots almost believable.

The main characters of his tales are often archaeologists or antiquaries. This was fitting, for in 1902, M.R. James himself discovered a manuscript fragment which led to excavations in the ruins of the abbey at Bury St Edmunds, in which the graves of several twelfth-century abbots were rediscovered, having been lost since the Dissolution of the Monasteries. He also catalogued many of the manuscript libraries of the University of Cambridge and translated the Book of Baruch from its original Ethiopic in 1879.

Being such an authority in the experiences of historical research puts him in a league all of his own when it comes to ghost stories and you feel as if you can just reach out and touch the characters of his gripping plots.

I give you one of his best, "The Treasure of Abbot Thomas."
