I’m relieved to announce that there will be no catholicsensibility.catholic. Very relieved. That much-coveted suffix will be for Catholic organizations only, not bloggers or other individuals. In the case of “.catholic,” individuals — whether religious bloggers or a cleric — … Continue reading
Rochester’s local media dissects Bishop Matano’s presser yesterday. Are numbers important? There is hope that a new bishop will bring new energy and life to a diocese. Bishop Matano focused, it is observed, on settling sex abuse cases. Is that … Continue reading
Thanks to Rocco tweet-whispering my skeptical take on Rochester-is-progressive, this site enjoyed a top day for views yesterday. Still, people looking for readings for their wedding, or for a funeral topped the Rochester musings. So I haven’t been a total … Continue reading
One more thing about that Joseph Swain interview in CWR. He mentions three “conflicts” at the conclusion of the chat. I think I see them as more tensions. But yes, in some places, especially on the internet, conflict breaks out. … Continue reading
Adam Wood and I are getting into a decent discussion on participation at the Café. Adam is a good egg. I think he’s colored somewhat by his surroundings, and takes a little too much time to harp on what he … Continue reading
I was thinking back to the Catholic blogosphere, and to what finally got me to start blogging about a decade ago. I was skeptical about it. I wondered if blogging had already jumped the shark. Probably too late to join … Continue reading
We have about two more weeks of Redemptionis Sacramentum posts, and three of Go and Make Disciples. The latter document will wrap up the observance of the Year of Faith. Unless someone suggests another idea to carry over past early … Continue reading
The Anchoress summarizes no less than twenty Catholic bloggers on Pope Francis. I’ve been a pretty happy camper the past several months, and I don’t feel the need to gorge myself on an apologetics-fest on the Holy Father. But if … Continue reading
I cannot escape the sense that elder brothers and sisters are being unmasked in the Catholic Church. Robert Royal wrings his hands: (H)e uses phrases that make you worry – as well as think. And unfortunately, it’s looking more and … Continue reading
So the rumors are swirling again that Pope Francis will name Marini I to head CDWDS. Except for the entertainment value this appointment provides, I don’t care that much. One commenter: I don’t know what all this anguished grumbling is all … Continue reading
A few related threads from different sources in the blogosphere caught my attention today. This essay that follows doesn’t have a clear conclusion, really. It’s more an unfinished line of thought. So if you readers have more to add, to refine, feel free. … Continue reading
As the inimitable Father Z scrambles to a new niche in the post-conciliar Church, I did notice a little twist of commentary, and so did someone else. In a blog post that sought to downplay the significance of Francis’ interview, … Continue reading
Most often, I meet authors through their books, and them amble over to their web sites or blogs. More rarely do I read a book by someone I’ve known first as a blogger. Elizabeth Scalia’s Strange Gods is featured in … Continue reading
Over at RNS, Mark Silk isn’t above tweaking ideological foils. He takes aim at Rod Dreher’s piece here. A lot of Catholic handwringing, even the little that’s coming from the Left, seems to me to be more “elder brother” fussing. … Continue reading
