GANDALF, O.P.

Naturally, Gandalf came to mind when I saw this frontispiece in the book Mémorial Lagrange:

Marie-Joseph Lagrange "the White", O.P. (1855-1938)
Biblical scholar, founder of the École Biblique at Jerusalem and wielder of the Flame of Anor

  1. Oh my word. Please tell me you've forwarded a copy of this to the Sisters in Stillwater?

    PS- It's "Flame of Anor", no R. ;)

  2. Thank you for the correction; fixed it. Though I have to imagine the pronunciation may be Arrrnor in some of the northern parts. I'll see that the Sisters get a copy.

    FYI: Thomas Merton sightings decrease by 50% or more during the winter months in the Northern U.S. and all of Canada.
