‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty’.

For those of us who are drawn to the Catholic faith above all by its beauty, and who may have been deterred by the dryness of theological argument or the ugliness of faith in practice, the writings of Stratford Caldecott, whether in print or online, have been a literal Godsend. Caldecott died recently, and this timely Festschrift is an admirable tribute to his many interests and achievements.

As the above image indicates, I’ve just taken delivery of my copy, courtesy of Amazon. I was first alerted to the book’s appearance by this review in Crisis magazine, itself a splendid tribute to ‘Strat’, as he was universally known, by Tracey Rowland.
