New in the Inner Sanctum This Week

Please consider supporting my work by subscribing to the Inner Sanctum. Every week, at least three new podcasts are posted, as well as the weekly “Ladydale Diary” and other features. Here is the new content posted this past week:

Home is Where the Hearth Is: Continuing the podcast series on What Every Catholic Should Know About Literature, we look at the Decadent movement in literature and the surprising number of penitential converts to the Faith that it spawned.

Revisiting Old Favourites: Continuing the selection of some of Chesterton’s finest essays, you are invited to listen to my discussion and reading of “The Architect of Spears”.

Poem of the Week: Beginning a mini-series of sonnets, I read and discuss three sonnets by Maurice Baring, a literary convert and great friend of Chesterton and Belloc.

Ladydale Diary: Day-to-day life with the Pearce family, including my appearance as “guest bartender” at an online event “Drinking with the Saints” and the recipe for my own cocktail/concoction, which I’ve called the Chesterbelloc, in deference to its Anglo-French ingredients.
Plus my correspondence with someone on Chesterton and nihilism.
