Here are the recordings of Grandma I said I would post - we've had some Internet worries lately (some *bumpkin* smashed into a telephone pole down the road!) and I couldn't post - now it's mended. These recordings are thanks to Noël's amazing patience and perseverance, so hurray to him!! He noticed that the tapes had two tracks, and by listening to the 2nd tracks, unearthed the treasures you'll be privy to in the weeks to come. Anyway, what with getting hold of an operational tape-recorder (they're getting rather rare, I had to ask a colleague at work and taking it to Noël's), playing all these tapes (18, I think, with some lasting several hours), sampling which ones were worth keeping, making sure no noise was heard in the house while they were being recorded, then uploading them on Wetransfer, where I downloaded them, renamed them for this blog, transformed them into mp3 format and trimming them the right size (Eklablog, for all its practicality, accepts only this format, and no more than 10 MO per sample)... all this work was really worth it!
While listening to these extracts (the second one is only the continuation of the first), where Grandma expounds on the superiority of Mary over Eve, one cannot but be struck by the choice of the subject: I thought it was quite fitting that she had undertaken to speak about Our Lady, and I recognized her deep faith in her dealing with this feminine dimension of the Christian doctrine. No doubt there had been other subjects, but this one seems really adapted to have her speak about it!
