UPDATE: A hearty welcome to Mark Shea's lickspittle minions! You'll note I have a tag on the sidebar which will direct you to talks, rants and other Sheavings by the Nefarious One himself! So take off your shoes and stay a while...

LibriVox recording of The Ballad of the White Horse by G.K. Chesterton. Read by Joshua B. Christensen
An English epic poem that follows the exploits of Alfred the Great in his defense of Christian civilization in England from the heathen nihilism of the North. Following a string of defeats at the hands of the invading Danes, a vision from heaven in the river island of Athelney fills Alfred with joy and hope. Though it gives no promise of victory in the coming struggle, it inspires him to rally his chieftains for a last stand against the invading hordes. His adventures lead throughout the country as he gathers his men, and take him through the Danish camps disguised as a minstrel before culminating in the Battle of Ethandune and the prophesying of the enemy's subtle return in the ages to come. (Summary by Joshua B. Christensen)

This is Chesterton's Epic Poem, the last Epic Poem modernity has produced (depending on how you count). This is also one of the very few works Chesterton thought was of sufficient quality to dedicate to his wife. As Mark Shea says, "Check it thou out."

There's a noticeable gap in American Catholic Apologetics with respect to Islam. Steve Kellmeyer, when he's not doing other apologetics tasks, is working to fill that gap. To date his is the best presentation on the topic I've heard. Do give it a listen.

I'm pretty sure I've posted these before, but what can I say? I'm a sucker for love stories. At their heart, every conversion story is a love story. The good part? When you listen to them you can't help but fall in love a little bit as well! Give these a listen and fall deeper in love with our Lord.
