Happy Thanksgiving!

In lieu of a full episode today, we’re bringing you a reading of a poem by this podcast’s patron, St. John Henry Newman.

Many are unaware of just how prolific and skilled a poet Newman was. We hope to remedy that with this podcast, and to bring you more of his poetry in future episodes—but for now, this mini-episode will serve as our introduction to his verse with a single poem, aptly titled: A Thanksgiving.
