With yesterday’s Micah 6 posting, I’ve come to the end of the Reconciliation Lectionary series here. It’s a long one, but still a distant third in popularity compared to weddings and funerals. Those two combined generate at least 90% of the traffic to this site. Some of that is just a quick glance. In and out, as far as I can tell.
I suppose I could do a series on Sunday Mass readings, but there are a lot of other people putting more thought, prayer, and energy into that. I recommend going elsewhere for that.
Another thought is to do readings for ministry to the sick, anointing and Communion. But at this point, I think not.
My foils on the conservative side of Catholicism can take heart, I suppose. Given that ninety-plus percent figure, it doesn’t seem I’m poisoning that many young minds or seducing them away from orthodoxy.
For the first time in a decade, there is no active series here at CS. Maybe that will change tomorrow and some form of dialogue will continue. Who knows? Discernment is still open-ended regarding this site. Once-a-day posts and occasionally a number two have continued. Maybe that’s my sense of not wanting to break a record of several hundred days in a row of scheduling something on this site.
I think it’s safe to say that when I do shutter this place, there won’t be another blogger taking over. If you visit someday and find that the wedding and funeral pages are anchored on the main site, you’ll know I’ve decided to go on hiatus.
The landscape of blogging sure has changed since Facebook, Twitter, and the Elections of 2008 and 2013.
