Byte-Sized Virtue: Season 4, Episode 5 – Honor and Dishonor


This week’s reflection is probably the most “off the cuff” of the season (at least to date), and it continues to poke around the ideas that were explored last week. Because really, it’s not just in Ultima that we find a lot of confusion about what the word “honor” means, and it’s not just in Ultima that some people have a concept of “honor” that is, it must be said, rather dishonorable — not to mention violent — in practice.

On the other hand, I did manage to work a mention of Klingons into this episode, so there’s that.

Listen to the Episode

The season of Lent — the (roughly) forty days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that precede Easter— began on Ash Wednesday (which, this year, fell on March 1st). It will continue until Holy Thursday (April 13th), and will thereafter be followed by the Triduum (comprising Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil). The Easter season then runs for another (roughly) fifty days, ending on Pentecost (June 4th).
