In Evening Prayer we’re walking through some brief highlights of 1 & 2 Maccabees this week, and I thought that since so many Anglicans today have minimal experience with these books, it would be a good idea to offer a brief homily.

For best effect, save this for during or after Evening Prayer so you’ll have read the story before watching/listening to this.
