How Far Is It To Bethlehem? –
Frances Chesterton ( 1917)
“How far is it to
Bethlehem?
Not very far.
Shall we find the stable
room
Lit by a star?
Can we see the little Child?
Is He within?
If we lift the wooden latch
May we go in?
May we stroke the creatures there
Ox, ass, or sheep?
May we peep like them and see
Jesus asleep?
May we stroke the
creatures there
Ox, ass, or sheep?
May we peep like them
and see
Jesus asleep
If we touch His tiny
hand
Will He awake?
Will He know we’ve
come so far
Just for His sake? (…)”

FATHER BROWN
FACTS

created by English novelist G. K.

John O'Connor (1870–1952), a parish
priest in Bradford who was involved in
Chesterton's conversion to Catholicism in
1922.
CHARACTER
 Father Brown is a short, stumpy
Catholic priest, with shapeless clothes
and a large umbrella, and an uncanny
insight into human evil.
 He is characteristically humble, and is
usually rather quiet; when he does talk,
he almost always says something
profound.
INTERPRETATIONS AND
CRITISCISM

conveying Chesterton's view of the world.
