A Candle is Worth a Thousand Years

In time for the final Sunday of Advent is this audio clip from earlier this week on Relevant Radio’s The Drew Mariani Show. Drew’s guest, Fr. Nicholas Federspiel, talks about the Advent Wreath and the Advent teachings of Fr. Alfred Delp.

“In a half an hour I’ll know more than you do.”

—Fr. Alfred Delp (as told by Drew Mariani in the audio clip above), which he whispered in jest to the prison chaplain before he died in the German prison where he spent his final days sentenced to death for supporting the anti-Nazi Resistance during World War II.
