This edition talks about the perfect communication between Christ and His Father; and uses the metaphor of the war deployment to help us understand how we can have joy in difficult times.  During the last half of the podcast, Fr. Anthony talks about living green and looking for vacation homes.

On this edition, the homily touches on the themes of blindness (Gospel lesson), language (Sts. Cyril and Methodius), and sacrifice (Memorial Day), but the real feature is the music from the Divine Liturgy.  The consensus favorite?  The Paschal Tropar near the end will have you bouncing with the tenors/basses as thy sing "the tombs" (FWIW, there are several good Ukrainian versions of this tropar in both Ukrainian and English).  Enjoy!
