About This Site

quilceneYou have arrived at the main page of a mostly-inactive site. That said, there are no plans to dismantle, edit, or further organize the posts assembled under the header. Most people visit to find or get advice about Scripture readings for their funerals or weddings. If you are such a surfer, I hope you find what you need. If you write a question in the comment form provided, I cannot guarantee I will see or respond quickly. Better is to look to the sidebar on the right and contact me personally. I respond to email within a day, usually. Best is to review the readings, then consult your priest, minister, or loved ones and move from there.

In 2003, others began to come here to read or to be bothered by an alternative to the Catholic blogosphere of the time, a place I found to be earnest, striving for truth, but unfailing conservative. Like a person hopping around on one leg.

That web setting has changed over the years. Bloggers have come and gone. Some voices are softer, and new harsh tones are easy enough to find and feed. I once read or tracked a few dozen sites regularly. These days, just a few.

My hope for this site for a period of about three to ten years ago was to attract a few friends, not necessarily like-minded, to present an online voice that was sensibly Catholic. A collaborative and creative effort of some kind never quite materialized. And for the past few years, I’ve toyed with the idea of shutting things down, or at minimum, walking away from daily writing here.

Other efforts beckon, so there it is.

  1. God has enriched you and us for this valuable website, Todd. Rest up for new adventures.

    Thanks for your contribution over the years, for showing us that there is such a thing as a “Catholic Sensibility”. Along with Andrew Greeley’s idea of a “Catholic Imagination”, it is something we need to keep before our eyes, and nuture in our hearts and memories.
    Always enjoyed visiting. It has become a rich resource on many topics. Best wishes for any future projects.

  3. FrMichael says:

    May God prosper your efforts for His Kingdom!

  4. Liam says:

    Words can’t adequately express my gratitude for your gift of this blog.

    Don’t forget to wear your sensible Catholic shoes on your new journey as a Homo Viator.

    May you hear a whisper of the last words of a novella well known to you: “Surprise me.”

  5. Devin Rice says:

    Farewell and thank you.

  6. Bari Colombari says:

    Todd,
    A sumptuous thanks to you (i.e., your blog postings) for being a part of my morning routine on a daily basis.
    May you enjoy a much deserved rest!

  7. Deo Gratais – your bite-sized reviews of church documents are superb, and I’m sure I’ll be back here again even if you are not making new posts. All the best for the new ventures.

  8. Anne says:

    Wishing you many blessings! I will miss checking in here.
    Thank you!

  9. Jim McCrea says:

    As Sts. Roy and Dale used to say: Good-bye, good luck and may the Good Lord take a likin’ to ya.

    You posting will be sorely missed.

    I wish the Christian presence was more known on the Internet and in the world. It seems pages regarding desires of the flesh outshine us though. It would be a Good Idea to leave your Site up so we keep the tally for our Team high. (At least get through Lent and then make your decision.) Thank you God Bless

    May you have a blessed, peaceful, and spiritually beneficial Great Lent, leading you to the Bright Pascha of the Lord!
