C.S.Morrissey recently sat down with the legendary Peter Stockland for a Q and A about the Catholic magazine Convivium:

CSM: In Latin, "convivium" means "banquet." The Greek equivalent would be "symposium," as in the title of the philosopher Plato's famous masterpiece.

"It implies a certain good cheer and hospitable spirit, as found at a festive banquet, a convivium," he writes.
