Sacramento Chesterton Society Meeting

June 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

For our May meeting we started reading Chesterton‘s masterpiece, Orthodoxy. We have read and discussed chapters one and two. For the month of June we will be reading chapters three and four (links below). And instead of our regular discussion we will have Fr. Dominic Savoie with us again on the big screen to talk with us about chapter four, The Ethics of Elfland.  If you heard Fr. Savoie speak to us in April on the Introduction to the book of Job, or, for that matter, his series on the complete book of Job on the parish YouTube Channel, or any of the other series of talks that are posted at YouTube, or if you have heard any of his Sunday Mass homilies, or if you heard his first in a series of lectures on The Man Who was Thursday (interrupted by the COVID April Fool joke last year, and I mean all year), you know he is an engaging speaker with a penetrating mind. The Ethics of Elfland is probably the most central, critical, foundational essay in Orthodoxy, so you won’t want to miss what Fr. Savoie has to say about it.
Here are the links to the readings for this month:
The meeting will be after the 6 pm Mass on June 8th at St Stephen’s, in classroom 2, approximately 7 pm and adjourning at approximately 9 pm.
In other business, there will be a Chesterton Conference put on by the American Chesterton Society in Chicago this summer at the end of July. You can attend onsite if you are willing to travel to Chicago, but since attendance is limited they are also providing online access to all the talks. Here is a link to information on that event – The Laughing Prophet: G. K. Chesterton & the Seven Virtues
Another online speaking conference type event that may be of interest to you Chestertonians is the Troubadours live monthly Zoom broadcast. It is hosted by St. Martin’s Academy in Fort Scott, Kansas (a Catholic boys boarding school) and the speakers are Daniel Kerr, headmaster of St. Martin’s, Joseph Pearce, author and college professor, William Fahey, President of St. Thomas More College, Christopher Check, head of Catholic Answers, and Dale Ahlquist, President of the Society of GK Chesterton. The talk always revolves around books and culture with lots of entertaining digressions. If you register at the website they will send you a link to the broadcast.
