What a joy to have had Dale Ahlquist join us again! Dale is the president of the American Chesterton Society, Host of EWTN’s Apostle of Common Sense, co-founder of the Chesterton Academy, author, and scholar of G.K. Chesterton. Today was a good day to speak about conversions to the Catholic Church – and so we spoke about Chesterton’s conversion, and then those of Dale, and 400 plus others. In addition, Chesterton has been an influence in very many vocations to the religious life. And speaking about religious life – why not talk about Chesterton and the Popes! And, because Chesterton was such a big man – we covered many other things. After listening, you can find out more about Dale Ahlquist and G.K. Chesterton at chesterton.org.
