Lord's day

Today is the 121st anniversary of the birth of one of my favorite authors, Father Daniel A. Lord S.J. You can join me in celebrating by listening to the only known recording of him, from an LP with the memorable title So I'm Dying of Cancer! (right-click link to download MP3 audio file).

The recording begins with radio interview with Father Lord circa May 1954, a few months after his diagnosis with terminal lung cancer (he would die the following January). Following the interview is a wonderful talk he gave that same year, focusing on the Love Commandment. To learn more about him, click the "Daniel A. Lord" tag below.
