Frances Chesterton, kindred spirit

Oct. 31, 2011, at 2:11pm

Reading Ian Ker’s biography of G.K. Chesterton this morning, I learned some things about his beloved wife, Frances.  For one, she was prone to depression; grey, wet weather effected her terribly.  Yet her faith was deep and true, and essentially personalistic.

Here is Fr. Ker, quoting from her journal:

Unlike her husband, who enjoyed rain and grey skies, Frances felt like a new person ‘because the sun is shining’, which made her feel ‘warm with the thought of all I have and warmer with the thought of all I am going to have and warmest of all with the thought that Love thought well to include me in his list of favored persons’.

Stay informed
