Take Your Tolkien

Have you read your Tolkien lately? Don't settle for watching Peter's Jackson's film version, extraordinary as it is for lending you images for your imagination. Rather, delve into the long conversations and deep, poignant thoughts, and mythopoeic narrative of a thorough-going Catholic thinker and writer, devoted to the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist.

Here is not "escapism" so-called. Here is sub-creation and magic that comes not from without relationship, but from within that which we call Providence.
