The One Great Thing

"Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament. There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves on earth..."
- J.R.R. Tolkien

What to Exalt, What to Forbid

"It has been left to the very latest Modernists to proclaim an erotic religion which at once exalts lust and forbids fertility."
- G.K. Chesterton (G.K.'s Weekly, Nov. 1933)

Clutching Faux Pearls

Sad news today in Boston, one of my favorite cities.

Said Paul: "Let's not have a culture that embraced 'The Company You Keep' now clutch its pearls over 'incomprehensible' bombings...anger at killers, and at those who hold their coats, is a proper and necessary reaction to murder...for license to engage in post-terror film criticism I take the example from Foggy Bottom after the Benghazi invasion last September. All I can say is that plenty of thoughts are going out to victims as if they died from an act of God."

Well put. Boston deserves better.
