Don't Chew My Face Off For Suggesting This
I am sitting here in Alva, finishing up my shopping list aimed at better food choices. While I am doing this, the image of Chesterton comes to mind. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I often get teary when I read Chesterton. I get teary because I wish I could have known him in this life.
Now, that got me thinking about eternity. If I can't know Gilbert in this life, perhaps I could in the next. Chesterton's works lead me to seek to be a better man, a more perfect follower of Christ. Because they are clear and pure and true, they give a momentary sight beyond this present instance.
Has anyone proposed Chesterton's cause for canonization? If so, whose patron is he, assuming he is in heaven?
