Any questions or comments?


  1. Yes, Ma'am! 8-D

    Okay, okay, okay... I'm actually on a blogging hiatus with my own blog for the time-being, but I promise to post comments in here more often. I'm on the last three pages of my first (and very slow) read of GK's "Orthodoxy." It's like boarding a passenger train for a casual siteseeing meander through the countryside, but by the end of the book you realize that you're on a freight train heading straight downhill and building up speed.



  2. Trub:
    Slow is normal for reading Orthodoxy, believe me. Took me 20 years to read it the first time. ;-)

  3. Took me four months. I must be a regular jack rabbit. ;-P

  4. I'll try it in english. I'm very interesed in this blog -actually, I've one, in Spanish: spanishchesterton.blogspot.com- and I'm afraid I've to learn a lot of the Chesterton Blog... as far as I can, I'll post comments here.

  5. I've never read "orthodoxy," but I'm working my way there. My 1st Chesterton discovery was his magnificent play "The Surprise." Once I read this play, I was ecstatic and full of passion. Since then I haven't stopped speaking on all the issues! Chesterton gave me inspiration and courage!
    G.K. Chesterton Rocks!

  6. I just wanted to let every Chesterton fan out there know that I am producing Chesterton's play "The Surprise" in my home town on North Wales, Pennsylvania! It has been a long road so far, and I'm not even CLOSE to finishing yet! Wish me luck! The performances are on June 7th @ 6:30pm and June 8th @ 3pm! Any and all prayers are welcome:)

  7. Hi! I'm Carlos Suárez, a university student from México. Here in Mexico City we have just started with some meetings that are being held periodically, we discuss different topics basing our opinions on Chesterton's perspectives. We could use a lot of help, specially should you contact us with any GKC Society in Mexico, or by proposing us some interesting topics. My e-mail is: carlos.s18@gmail.com, please try to reach me, we really need your help. Thanks

  8. Carlos,
    I passed you note on to my contact in Mexico City. God bless you and keep reading Chesterton!
