A Fellow LOTR Comparison

March 27, 2012

Here is a cool link to a Roman Catholic priest, who sees a connection between the Feast of the Annunciation and the Lord Of The Rings:  http://www.patheos.com/blogs/standingonmyhead/2012/03/ladyday-frodo-baggins-and-happy-new-year.html

Enjoy the reflection. I think it is a good one.

    As you may know J.R.R. Tolkien was a Roman Catholic believer. He’s often called a convert but it was, I understand, at a young age, as his widowed mother converted. She also died young and he was placed under the care of the fathers of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri, the Oratorians, which is a religious congregation in the Catholic Church. I believe he was actually raised by a devout woman with Oratorian supervision. There is much that is Catholic in Tolkien. He also, I believe had a hand in C. S. Lewis’ conversion.
