Reconquest Episode 28. Saint Robert Southwell: The Truth, the Beauty, and the Gore. Guest: Charles Coulombe
Written by Brother Andre Marie on 06/15/2016
For this Reconquest, I am joined by Charles Coulombe to discuss “Saint Robert Southwell: The Truth, the Beauty, and the Gore.”
Topics include a brief biological sketch of the missionary-martyr-poet, the purpose of his poetry, and some of that poetry itself. His was an amazing career as a hunted missionary who not only exercised a priestly, sacramental mission among the persecuted faithful of Elizabethan England, but who also engaged in an extraordinary apostolate of the pen at the same time. Indeed, his writing — both of prose and poetry — was itself evangelism. And it was a kind of evangelism that marshalled forth his considerable literary skills combined with the Ignatian spirit of a Jesuit during the impressive first fervor of the Company of Jesus.
We can enjoy the fruits of his efforts still today.
