Weigel and GKC

"In his remarkable little primer, “Letters to a Young Catholic,” Mr. Weigel took his readers on a series of pilgrimages to places where great Catholic personalities have struggled to reconcile this world and the next, places like the bar in London’s Fleet Street, where G.K. Chesterton used to drink. Chesterton was as worldly a scribbler as ever drained a pint of beer, but whereas the hack work of his journalist contemporaries has perished, his books and essays still glow with an insight that owes everything to his faith. What makes Catholic Christianity distinctive among religions is, in one sense, its worldliness."
