Kneeler Jeopardy - weekend version
Update: Grandma's funeral was postponed because of the blizzard we were supposed to get but didn't. Now it's next Saturday.
Thought that I'd do another round that, hopefully, is the Goldilocks round -- not too hard, not too easy, but just right. This may be the easiest one yet, but it's hard to gage. Sorry, I'm exhibiting signs of Jeopardy addiction. I must go read Adrienne's posts on the topic.

Who sought, in his writings, to turn water into wine, as the teachings of Christ were as wine and the teachings of secular authors were as water.
A rewrite for clarity and for Adrienne: This Catholic writer described his task (his writings) in terms of making wine. He described the teachings of Christ as wine and the wisdom of the secular writers as water. Instead of watering down the Gospel, he sought to imitate Christ and turn the water into wine.
Clue 1: This man was a member of a religious order
Clue 2: Faith and reason are complimentary, not contradictory
Clue 3: Influenced Dante and Chesterton
As always, St. Alexander says to place your answer in the form of a question in the com box, and continue to pray some Hail Marys until the answer is revealed.
