Ora Pro Nobis: The Anchoress' New Column at The Catholic Answer

She kicks it off with some G.K. Chesterton.
G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “There never was anything so perilous or so exciting as orthodoxy.”
The Catholic Answer kicks off the Anchoress' new column by making it available to all ... so go by and read it.

For those, like me, who have very little Latin ... Ora Pro Nobis means "pray for us." (Thank you, Google, for making it so easy to find that out.)


  1. Thank you for this, I had to go look up the Chesterton poem. It was one I hadn't read before:

    "Here dies another day

    During which I have had eyes, ears, hands

    And the great world round me;

    And with the tomorrow begins another.

    Why am I allowed two?"


  2. Lawrence, thank YOU for that! I made a mental note to figure out why he had "two" and then (as so often happens) I forgot! This is going straight to the quote journal!
