From Canterbury to Rome

Fr Taylor Marshall, prelato anglicano e celebre blogger, ha annunciato il suo passaggio alla Chiesa Cattolica, insieme alla moglie ed ai loro tre figli.
Qui racconta le ragioni della sua conversione, iniziando con una grandiosa citazione:

It is impossible to be just to the Catholic Church. The moment men cease to pull against it they feel a tug towards it. The moment they cease to shout it down they begin to listen to it with pleasure. The moment they try to be fair to it they begin to be fond of it. But when that affection has passed a certain point it begins to take on the tragic and menacing grandeur of a great love affair.

- GK Chesterton
