The Quest for Shakespeare

Joseph Pearce, author of Literary Converts and of biographies of Chesterton, Belloc, Oscar Wilde, and more, joins us all the way from England to talk about his upcoming series on EWTN in which he makes the case that the greatest writer of all time was in fact a recusant Catholic. His talk is illustrated by scenes from Shakespeare’s plays acted out on stage!

Socrates Meets Jesus

Based on the best-seller by Peter Kreeft, this play answers the question – what would happen if Socrates came back to life and went to college in modern America? How would he handle the mushy modern mind? And what would he make of this character everybody’s talking about?

Kevin, What a delight to listen to your story of your journey home last night on EWTN. Happily three
of my sons were watching too--one of whom just earned his second degree from the Knights of Columbus-age 20 years! Wishing you and your family a must wonder-filled Christmas. Fondly, Regina
