Courage in Times of Crisis

I was deeply moved by this address by William Fahey, President of Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, which warrants the fifteen minutes of time that watching it entails. I am a Visiting Fellow at Thomas More College, at which I have taught, and I can say, with no hesitation, that it is the finest Catholic liberal arts school with which I have ever been associated.

What’s New in the Inner Sanctum

The Inner Sanctum of my personal website has new content every week. Here is what’s new this week:

  • The latest in a series of podcasts on “What Every Catholic Should Know About Literature”.
  • The beginning of a new series of podcasts “Revisiting Old Favourites” in which I read favourite essays, both my own and those of my favourite writers. This week I read my essay on “Fascism and Chesterton”.
  • My private correspondence with a Protestant about the history of the Reformation.
  • Private correspondence with a Protestant about the justification of connecting the rise of Protestantism with the Enlightenment and the rise of relativism.
  • The latest “Ladydale Diary” in which I write of my own life and work, at home with my family and on the road giving talks.
