A Chesterton Blog

I've recently been browsing on this helpful blog, The Hebdomadal Chesterton, the purpose of which is to provide us with longer portions of G.K. Chesterton's writings than the thousands of one-line quotes one can find online. The host takes passages from many different books by Chesterton.  I just read "Too Liberal to Be Likely," which is still quite current, though written in 1925. It consists of a paragraph from The Everlasting Man, a book that got my head spinning delightfully God-ward many years ago when I read it the first time.

Hebdomadal, I learned, means "appearing weekly," which the posts seemingly fail to do, as I look at the dates on the archives. But that's not much of a problem, when G.K.C.'s ideas are so richly provoking, and keep the mind busy for much longer than a week at a time. And if one is hungry for more, there are several links to other places where similar nourishment can be found.

I enjoyed visiting there -- thanks for providing the link. Yes, I can last several weeks pondering one Chesterton passage.

Hebdomadal...but not? That's one reason I don't make any promises about how often I'll post on either of my blogs...it would be so easy to not keep the intention. I suppose I could say, once a year for sure, but even that is going to need a "God willing"...

Thanks for linking this resource.

Cool...my goal is to be hemdomadal, then!
