A few years ago I was at dinner with two of my sons at a college president's house. The college president and I were discussing our educational journey. I made the comment that my sons in their homeschool curriculum were reading all these books (giving examples of the entire Bible, Homer's Odyssey, etc) which I wanted to read but never had-my education was lacking.
One son looked at me incredulously - "You haven't read everything you make us read?"
Well as time goes on, I am trying to catch up.
This week I have started Homer's Odyssey. I read something today from Anthony Esolen:
"Homer is relevant to me because Homer is relevant to man."
So I read what is relevant to man. So far, good!
Oremus pro invicem!
