Willa Cather, Catholic Literature, and What It Means For You

When we think of literature that is Catholic, the first names that come to mind are those of well-known Catholic authors – J.R.R. Tolkien, G.K. Chesterton, etc. What makes these writers stand out is not only the quality of their work, but also the richness of the worldview they espouse. They highlight beauty, make liberal use of good humor, and aren’t hesitant when it comes to tackling the theme of the battle between good and evil. In some cases, these authors write explicitly on theological matters (in the case of G.K. Chesterton), but even when Catholicism is never mentioned outright, it is clear that their faith influenced their work.
Some of the best Catholic literature, though, was written by people who never “crossed the Tiber.” One such author is Willa Cather...

And, just for fun, what I wore Sunday. (Solo Mass, since the birthday girl and her big sister were sick, so the pictures were taken while opening presents when I got home!)
