about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.

In a fruitful coincidence, Andrew Krivak’s spiritual memoir arrived for reading as my personal discernment on the future continues. The author is a poet, but he has obvious abilities that transcend that genre. I’d enjoy reading his fiction, were he … Continue reading
