George Weigel this month released a book collecting remembrances of a range of historical figures, with the goal of exploring "what it means to live a worthy life."
Not Forgotten: Elegies For, and Reminiscences Of, a Diverse Cast of Characters, Most of Them Admirable is a compilation of nearly seventy elegies for diverse individuals, some of whom Weigel knew personally, and some whom he "admired from a distance."
These include such figures as St. John Paul II, Jackie Robinson, and Charles Krauthammer.
"The book is really an exploration of the many meanings of 'vocation' and the many forms of excellence," Weigel told CNA.
