Take – and Read!
by Anthony Egan SJ
No, I am not going to reflect on St Augustine of Hippo – though I shamelessly quote words associated with his conversion. I am going to make the case for a different kind of conversion: reading!
But, some may object, in a time when we are faced with political corruption, global pandemic and the ongoing threat of environmental catastrophe, how can you be so irresponsible to talk about such trivia as books and reading?
