First Things Indulges in a Little Gratuitous Chesterton Bashing

…in a piece that takes various Chesterton quotations that generally preserve quite a lot of common sense and then subjects them to flat-footed heckling for no particular reason other than being contrarian and jerkish. Much of the heckling works if you are into that sort of thing, sort of like a 13 year old’s heckling [Read More...]

My Friend Lals Bids a Moving Farewell to Fr. Tom

His Vigil will be at Blessed Sacrament 7 PM tomorrow. The funeral will be the next day (same place) at 10 AM. Get there early for both because I think it will be extremely crowded: a beautiful testimony to a man much loved. I’ve already started to ask his intercession. Santo subito! [Read more...]

Uh Huh This is the sort of story that the Spirit Daily Personality and the Pathological JPII Hater will both eat up–and draw diametrically opposed conclusions: “He’s a Saint consumed with the Fire of the Holy Spirit!” “He’s a damned sinner roasting in the pits of Hell!” Personally, I think when the Church shouts “Santo [Read More...]
