The Catholic hero who loved beer, atheists, fairy tales, and debates
G.K. Chesterton was a large man—likely over 300 pounds—who made a similarly large splash as a writer.
He’s one of the most quoted figures in English history, and was enormously prolific. As a journalist, novelist, poet, playwright, mystery writer, social reformer, literary critic, and Christian apologist, he wrote thousands of essays and hundreds of books.
His writing has a freshness and originality about it that combines verbal acrobatics with an overflowing joy and intellectual playfulness.

An excerpt from
POPE FRANCIS: REJOICE AND BE GLAD
The summation of the Law
61. In other words, amid the thicket of precepts and prescriptions, Jesus clears a way to seeing two faces, that of the Father and that of our brother. He does not give us two more formulas or two more commands. He gives us two faces, or better yet, one alone: the face of God reflected in so many other faces. For in every one of our brothers and sisters, especially the least, the most vulnerable, the defenceless and those in need, God’s very image is found. Indeed, with the scraps of this frail humanity, the Lord will shape his final work of art. For “what endures, what has value in life, what riches do not disappear? Surely these two: the Lord and our neighbour. These two riches do not disappear!”
