Brother Petroc's Return - A Series of Sermons on Modern Spirituality

We offered a series of sermons on the 1937 novel Brother Petroc's Return. You can access a digital version of the book on Amazon.

Written by an Anglican convert to Roman Catholicism and a Dominican Nun (Sister Mary Catherine OP) who died in the early 1970s,
 the book was intended as an allegorical "hypothesis" on the development of and challenges facing contemporary spirituality in the 20th Century.

The book consists of 19 chapters - which serialized the chapters as sermons and they are available for viewing below.

Technical note (because you asked): In order to view the sermon you will need a program (PC / Mac etc.) or app (android / i-phone etc.) 
that plays ".flv" format video files depending upon your operating system. Beyond that... you're on your own since I do not know what system you are using .
