A Reading From Jean de Joinville’s “Life Of Saint Louis” (Podcast)

Today was a difficult one to bear. We grieve, and feel dismay. I wanted to honor the spirit that created Notre Dame by reading some selections from Joinville’s Life of Saint Louis. He was the king of France known to history as Louis IX, and he lived from 1214 to 1270. The pious and selfless ethic he professed infused every stone, every brick, and every timber of Notre Dame.

France, do not forget your dead king.  Vive la France.

  1. I appreciate this podcast, Quintus. Things are tough right now in Europe but thankfully people aren’t disparaging. We’ll grieve over our loss but we’ll also grow stronger from this. In a way, we needed this wake-up call.
