Meat eaters evangelize better that vegetarians

So having gone into a cafe on a Friday and explained, 'No, I won't have the English Breakfast today as it's Friday' Asked explain, I told the whole cafe about the Crucifixion etc.

Today I get to explain that I will have meat this Friday and get to explain The Immaculate Conception. Then a vegetarian goes into a cafe and says "Veggie Breakfast as usual please"

Say the GK Chesterton Prayer to close an abortion centre

Please start saying the GK Chesterton Prayer each day until Christmas Day, asking him to intercede with God to close down one or more of the five abortion centres in Ealing, Twickenham, Whitfield Street, Edgbaston or Cardiff, by the end of 2017. Feel free to add any local centres to your prayer.

You will find the prayer below or you can print a copy off in a number of languages here;

In September 2012 we asked Chestertonians to support 40 Days for Life by praying the Chesterton prayer each day, asking that an abortion centre in England would close down.
The abortion centre in Bedford Square London has since closed down. 

God Our Father, Thou didst fill the life of
Thy servant Gilbert Keith Chesterton with a
sense of wonder and joy, and gave him a faith
which was the foundation of his ceaseless
work, a charity towards all men, particularly
his opponents, and a hope which sprang from
his lifelong gratitude for the gift of human
life. May his innocence and his laughter, his
constancy in fighting for the Christian faith in
a world losing belief, his lifelong devotion to
the Blessed Virgin Mary and his love for all
men, especially for the poor, bring
cheerfulness to those in despair, conviction
and warmth to lukewarm believers and the
knowledge of God to those without faith. We
beg Thee to grant the favours we ask through
his intercession, the end of abortion in this
Country [and especially for one or more of the five abortion centres in Ealing, Twickenham, Whitfield Street, Edgbaston or Cardiff to by the end of 2017 so that his holiness may be recognized by all and the
Church may proclaim him Blessed. We ask
this through Christ Our Lord. Amen

Happy Feast of GK Chesterton?

Today we celebrate the Feast of All Saints. So if GKC is in Heaven, today is his Feast Day, until he is Canonised when the Church may move his Feast. Or will they? Today is the 81st Anniversary of the Conversion of his Wife Frances, if she is Canonised with him maybe today will be their joint Feast Day. 
So, say the Chesterton Prayer today and print a few copies off for friends. Buy 'The Women Who Was Chesterton' by Nancy Carpenter-Brown and do pick up a copy of the Catholic Truth Society 150th Birthday reprint No 1 'Where All Roads Lead' by GKC. Do share this.

Welcome to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Ealing

Welcome to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Ealing. Socialists sign Petition, Socialists Present their Petition, Socialist Councillors then vote for the Socialist motion to support the Socialist petition. But it's Democratic because the public can watch!

And the BBC (Broadcasters of Bolshevism & Communism) told the plebs that the Comrades (Councillors) would debate both sides. And ten Councillors (Comrades) congratulated everyone for speaking in favour of the motion and thus having had a great debate.

Please support The Good Counsel Network by attending their peaceful Pro-Life prayer vigils and donate to help Mothers who choose to continue their pregnancies in the face of opposition.

Yes Cymru's Independence In Your Pocket, I cut mine in half!

Having just read Yes Cymru's Independence In Your Pocket booklet, I went for a stanley knife. I went into the garden for safety and cut it in half.

Straight down the spine the knife went. This left me with one copy in Welsh and another copy in English! 

I stuck a new card cover on the back of each, GK Chesterton Prayer (in Welsh) on the inside and GKC Taffy quote on the outside.

Will now send them to a couple of bods in Wales. Job done 😎

(You can buy copies from Y Lolfa)

Urgent Holiday Warning

Are you going to a Country where they speak one of the following languages; English, Igbo, Latin, French, Hungarian, Portuguese, Irish, Welsh, Maltese, Spanish, Polish, Romanian, German, Latvian, Russian, Croatian, Slovakian, Catalan or Italian.
If so you need to print off some GK Chesterton Prayercards in the local language to leave in Churches or I will be very cross 😉
You can just print them on card or paper if you like, it doesn't have to be on a t-shirt.

95th Anniversary of England’s Largest Earthquake

Ninety-five years ago today, the World was rocked to it’s very foundations by a huge earthquake. The epicentre was The Railway Hotel Beaconsfield, which is no longer standing. The hotel has been replaced by a supermarket, carpark and a Catholic Church.

The aftershocks of the earthquake were felt all over the World. Some people in Argentina even wrote a prayer as a result and the Archbishop of Buenos Aires was even moved to edit the pray. That Archbishop has since gone on and changed his name to Pope Francis.

So 95 years ago Gilbert Keith Chesterton became a Catholic in The Railway Hotel Beaconsfield and shook the World to it’s roots. He has led hundreds or maybe thousands of others into the Catholic Church. He holiness has led hundreds to his graveside to pray. For seven years now there has even been an Annual Pilgrimage in his honour.

Say the GK Chesterton Prayer in the language of your choice; Follow @CatholicGKCSoc on Twitter.
Like The Catholic GK Chesterton Society Facebook page. Read Chesterton, and not just his very good Father Brown mysteries. Many of his books and essays can be read for free online, including his biographies of St Francis, St Thomas Aquinas and Charles Dickens.

And do watch, ‘G K Chesterton; Apostle of Common Sense’ on EWTN (Sky 589 or online Mondays 2pm or Wednesdays 7am or Thursdays 10pm each week. (30 minutes long)
