This week I am blogging over at Word on Fire on Terence Malick’s latest film, which I argue presents a vision of martyrdom that emphasizes the necessity of fortitude for an ultimate act of charity. The analysis comes in two parts, and you can find them here.
Remember the very first episode of Sacred and Profane Love? It was on Flannery O’Connor and Redemptive Love with my favorite Hillbilly Thomist, Thomas Joseph White, O.P. Anyway, I recently gave a lecture at the University Club in downtown Chicago titled, “Flannery O’Connor and the Vision of Grace”, which I am posting for those who are interested in how the thought of Thomas Aquinas informs O’Connor’s artistic vision.
