"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Augustine still speaks truth All is apparently not lost in France, as actor Gerard Depardieu has apparently found God, with a little help from my good friend St. Augustine.
In the Catholic weekly Le Pélerin, Depardieu said many of the questions he had posed during his film career were answered by Augustine, who lived between 354 and 430, but remained an example of 'accuracy and modernity'.
'I have a mystical, religious temperament, coloured by a persistent temptation to ask: Why? In Augustine, I have rediscovered these questions, the quest for truth - the why of what we are.'
I think more people today should rediscover Augustine, and in his writings discover That which he discovered.
