Faith and happiness

I’ll be at the lecture advertised above tonight. For those who don’t read Dutch, the topic will be French author Marcel Pagnol and his ideas of faith and happiness (a very Catholic idea, of course). French literature is hardly my forte, and I can’t say I have ever heard of Pagnol, but I have at least heard the speaker speak before. Dr. W. Bots knows a thing or two about French Catholic authors and has been a guest speaker in the parish a few times. he knows an awful lot about his topics, so I have hopes that I’ll be able to learn a thing or two.

The lecture is not organised by the student parish, but we have been asked to advertise it on behalf of the St. Martin’s parish. We do, after all, share a cathedral, parish house and priest.

One thought on “Faith and happiness”

  1. I just read Pagnol’s play, “La femme du boulanger.” Though Pagnol was not a practicing Catholic, his literature is imbued with Catholic sentiments and images. This comedy, full of hilarious and very imperfect but sympathetic characters, is a beautiful and powerful tale of sin, repentance, and reconciliation. I highly recommend Pagnol.
