Episode details

The episode of Anthony Esolen Speaks for Epiphany is a reading from my book, In the Beginning Was the Word. The scripture reference for this meditation is John 1:14: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

O Thou, whose glorious, yet contracted light,
        Wrapt in nights mantle, stole into a manger;
        Since my dark soul and brutish is thy right,
To Man of all beasts be not thou a stranger:
     Furnish and deck my soul, that thou mayst have
     A better lodging than a rack, or grave.
From "Christmas" (George Herbert, The Temple, 1633)
