First Things Essays

We are taking a few days break from our mealtime reading of The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope by Austen Ivereigh. For the next few days we will be reading two selections from the April 2016 edition of First Things. We will read an opinion piece by Charles L. Glenn titled “Muslims in the Melting Pot” and an essay by Pierre Manent titled “Repurposing Europe.”

 

from Rule of St. Benedict: Chapter 38. The Reader for the Week

Reading will always accompany the meals of the brothers.
