Today we had two guests joined us. Anthony Ryan shared a new book by Abbot Jean Charles Nault, O.S.B., The Noonday Devil: Acedia, the Unnamed Evil of Our Times. It is a fascinating book, and Anthony does a wonderful job explaining the real meaning of acedia, why it is important to know of it today, and how to counteract it in our lives. The book is available at Ignatius.com, and your local Catholic bookstores.
Brent Forrest joined us from San Antonio, Texas. Brent’s article, All Roads Lead to Rome-and None of Them are Smooth, appeared in Gilbert Magazine March/April 2013. It is a great look at God’s providence, His care, and the Eternal City that is full of stone that has been pressed into the service of God. We spoke of his conversion, and the annual American Chesterton Society Conference that will be held in San Antonio, TX this August. For more information, go to www.chesterton.org.
