When Anthony Esolen and Angelico Press team up… well… it just doesn’t get any better than that.
I was really excited at the notification that Anthony Esolen (whose translation of the Divine Comedy is terrific) had written an in depth reflection on the Prologue of the Gospel of John. I’m working through it now.
As a priest who uses the Vetus Ordo, the Prologue is “daily bread”, for it is recited at the end of almost every Mass.
If you frequent Mass in the Vetus Ordo your active participation will be massively increased through reading and weighing Esolen’s work. And – think about it – give a copy of this book to every priest you know who says the Vetus Ordo.
So, far, every single page has been enriching.
