I love the part about a third-grader who, in a restaurant, recited 40 lines from Dante’s Inferno for Mr. Esolen. That impromptu delivery manifested the kind of education she was receiving at the Academy of Classical Christian Studies in Oklahoma City.
Crisis Magazine, Anthony Esolen: “But we must face the truth. Some people lead bad lives, and look with longing upon the goodness they do not share. But other people hate the good, and the better it is, the more they hate it and wish to spoil it. This may be the choice the Church faces in our time: to be despised by her enemies for being lukewarm, or to be hated for being good. Christ was not lukewarm.” Full article is here.
