Weekends with Chesterton: Education

Over the years, I have read a number of books by G.K. Chesterton. However, since I am not currently reading anything by this great Catholic writer, I thought that I wouldn't be joining Sarah for her Weekends with Chesterton. Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's Children and Parents caused me to change my mind. In his book, Venerable Archbishop Sheen quotes G.K. Chesterton.


Sheen explains, "By this he meant that education begins early." I will add that I think that Chesterton is also saying that education begins at home. Parents truly are the primary educators of their children.

  2. Ah! I've never seen this one!

    I had a thought the other day that it would be so great if Chesterton and Sheen were still here with us, so I could read their blogs. :)

    1. I agree. I couldn't help but think when I read it, "Yes, parents truly are the primary educators of their children." I am so thankful that there are books. :)

    1. Oh Elisa, I can't wait for you to join in and I hope that you share at least one of your great photos when you do so. I look forward to eventually reading what you have to share. I might just have to reread a book by Chesterton in the near future or read our oldest daughter's favorite Chesterton book, an old hardcover copy of The Complete Father Brown, published by Wordsworth Classics.
