"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
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).
