Hilaire Belloc: Prophet for Our Times

"Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine / There's always laughter and good red wine / At least I've always found it so / Benedicamus Domino!"

Immortal quotes such as this one have kept readers returning again and again to the voluminous works of Hilaire Belloc, not only for his sharp wit and scathing social and cultural critiques, but also for spiritual consolation and biographical portraits of the great figures of modernity.

Knowing that Belloc has many things to tell us today, Father C. John McCloskey, Scott Bloch and Brian Robertson have compiled some of his best quotes and put them into a new book, "The Essential Belloc: A Prophet for Our Times" (St. Benedict Press).
