Just after receiving an invitation from Joseph Pearce to celebrate St George’s Day, I read this splendid article in which he lauds his adopted home of the USA. When the Pearces and Longeneckers get together it is a jolly affair for Joseph the Englishman is married to an American and Dwight the American is married to an Englishwoman.
So Mr Pearce and Mrs Longenecker have a jolly time tearing apart the new world and all its vulgar ways while Fr Longenecker and Mrs Pearce have a jolly time attacking the old country and all her moribund eccentricities.
After you’ve read Joseph’s article praising the USA you might like to read my recent article for The Catholic Thing toot tooting about Her Majesty the Queen and the Pope. To do so go here.
