July 30th, 1922

ChestertonPortrait1922: In response to the news that Chesterton had been received into the Catholic church, George Bernard Shaw exclaimed, “No, Gilbert, now you are going too far.”

Today, July 30th, we celebrate the anniversary of Chesterton’s formal entry into communion after his long intellectual and spiritual journey. Lucky for us, we can follow along with him posthumously, encountering surprising friends and kindred spirits on the path, while recharging in those necessary supplies of hope, humor and common sense that each of us desperately needs for our own journey.
