The Mirus Sessions
I do not think any of us foresaw this, but over the last two months, I've held several recorded conversations with Thomas V. Mirus, for his CatholicCulture.org podcast series. First, on The River of the Immaculate Conception, then on my unexpected collaboration with the Catholic painter Andrew de Sa, and finally, in a series of three afternoons, on The Vision of the Soul: Truth, Goodness, and Beauty in the Western Tradition.
Both admirers and detractors of that latter book have commented it is dense and difficult. That was certainly not the intent of the author, but Vision was a book written in conversation over many years, and as the conversation with fellow writers deepened, the book began to bear the imprint of that depth. I think the argument of the book is one that every person, without exception, needs to hear; it is a book that attempt to recapitulate the wisdom of our tradition that instructs us all how to be more fully human and to live lives of transcendent, finally sacred, purpose. How pleased I am, therefore, to share the three interviews on Vision, along with the previous two, in hopes that those who might be put off by the book might still get a sense of its bigger claims. We were pretty thorough. I hope you enjoy them. Click on the icon at left to hear a particular episode.
