Live and Let Fly…but not before you read it!


I am always on the lookout for good fiction. When it’s written from a Catholic worldview, that’s a bonus. When it includes tough nuns who have a sense of humor that makes me want to know them in real life, that’s gonna keep my attention. When it has a mystery, adventure, and humor, it might […]

Government Pork


In 1905, G.K. Chesterton wrote, in Heretics, People wonder why the novel is the most popular form of literature; people wonder why it is read more than books of science or books of metaphysics.

Recent Reading: What I Read Last Week
