The Queue

How the Reformation Happened was a most welcome breath of fresh air, a scathing rebuttal of & rebellion against the polite, accepted, & virulently anti-Catholic history so often presented in the English-speaking world, dominated as it has so long been by Protestantism & Protestantism's logical successor, nihilistic atheism. Not that How the Reformation Happened spares the Church, whose many failings are laid out & condemned. I look forward to reading more Belloc, though for the nonce none of his other books have been added to the queue.

I'm not going to read anything else until I finally finish Amoris Lætitia.
