Why This Canada Day Vatican II Thinking (Religious Liberty, Respecting Cultures, Evangelize From Within) Gives Hope When Previous Catholic Mindsets Failed and Resulted in Residential Schools (Religious Restriction, Destroying Cultures, Evangelizing by Force)

As a Canadian Catholic I have much to think about this Canada day over the discovery of more unmarked graves of children from residential schools run by Catholic missionaries and churches.

Chesterton – “The Napoleon of Notting Hill”: and Where Magic and Poems Come From in the Liturgy

I did not find The Napoleon of Notting Hill by Chesterton to be my favorite novel. There were several long winded and over done passages in my opinion, but that being said – the overall twist that the novel offers were some of the best ever written.
