A Christmas Greeting from the Chesterton Institute

The G. K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture wishes you a blessed Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!



G. K. Chesterton


Go humbly…it has hailed and snowed…

With voices low and lanterns lit;

  So very simple is the road,

  That we may stray from it.


  The world grows terrible and white,

  And blinding white the breaking day;

  We walk bewildered in the light,

  For something is too large for sight,

  And something much too plain to say.


  The Child that was ere worlds begun

  (…We need but walk a little way,

  We need but see a latch undone…)

  The Child that played with moon and sun 

  Is playing with a little hay.
