is the name of the poem published in First Things this month, by our friend Joshua Hren, the impresario over at Wiseblood Books.

It concerns that awful attack in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray last year. Hence the dedication:

Requiescat in pace, Father Jacques Hamel
Martyred at the church of St. Étienne,
Named for the first martyr

As for the rest of us … Wake up, Korrektiv! Wake up!


  1. Quin,

    You beat me to it! I was going to post the same thing – my title post? “Wise Things” – heh.

    Yes, Mr. Hren is truly a Korrektivista at heart, isn’t he?

    Good on him!

    Thanks for the post!
