Hello Everyone,
 
Our October meeting is coming up this Monday, October 12 at 7:15 pm. We will meet again in person at Risen Christ Catholic Parish at 3060 South Monaco Parkway. We are continuing with Chesterton’s masterpiece, Orthodoxy, and will be discussing Chapter 5, The Flag of the World.
 
It has been an October tradition to read aloud Chesterton’s poem Lepanto, and we’ve even been treated to a couple of wonderful recitations from members of our group. This year we will have to rely on a recording. Here are two YouTube videos featuring historian Christopher Check. First, he discusses the battle with Adrian Ahlquist (posted just yesterday!). Next is Chris’s explanation of the battle and his reading of the poem. Enjoy!
 
I hope everyone is doing well and look forward to a lively discussion on Monday.
 
Mark
