Today’s the feast of St. Athanasius, the Father of Orthodoxy, the man who stared the world down when it awoke to find itself Arian. A great way to celebrate is by listening to St. Athanasius and the Divinity of the Holy Spirit, an engaging lecture by Capuchin Father Thomas Weinandy. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page, look for the little audio symbol, and follow the instructions.) Father Tom delivered that paper at the St. Paul Center‘s Letter and Spirit Conference in 2006. It was the second annual Father Ronald Lawler Memorial Lecture.
UPDATE: More good stuff from Jeff Ziegler’s A-List:
— Noteworthy among Athanasius’ works are “Life of Antony” (Vita Antonii), “On the Incarnation” (De Incarnatione), and Discourses against the Arians (Contra Arianos).
— The Ven. John Henry Newman’s translation of some of the saint’s works.
