G.K. Chesterton with Msgr. Patrick Gaalaas – Episode 53

Special thanks to Dr. Mike Malloy for sponsoring this episode of the Catholic Man Show! We appreciate your help and generosity!

Msgr. Gaalaas is a diocesan priest in the Diocese of Tulsa and the pastor of St. Bernard parish in South Tulsa.

Msgr Gaalaas said, “One of my favorite authors is an Englishman named Gilbert Keith Chesterton. When Chesterton was a young man, he was seriously tempted to find the world meaningless. But, thanks be to God, he snapped out of it and became a very happy (and very grateful) man. Almost everything he said or wrote was filled with gratitude. One of his early poems is titled “Evening.”

Here dies another day

During which I have had eyes, ears, hands

And the great world round me;

And with tomorrow begins another.

Why am I allowed two?”

Msgr. Gaalaas has been studying and reading Chesterton for almost 50 years! It was a great conversation!
