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.

I haven’t been in a cooking mood in some time. That changed last week. Two nice batches of vegetable chili and now, dinner tonight. South Asian purists might wince, but no ghee or even butter (alas) to cater to the … Continue reading
Some Christians fuss about the 31st of October. I don’t recall this being a thing until this century. Maybe it was in the 60s, but my parents were rather overprotective. We got those suffocating plastic masks and assembled sugary loot … Continue reading
Two experiences today in social media. First, a facebook friend mentioned the amount of food way, way past its expiration date they receive at the food bank where she volunteers. My comment on her thread: The American way: let them … Continue reading
The context of this quote is receiving a concern about immigrant students, and their difficulty of adapting to new foods of their host culture. … if health permits someone to habituate himself even to water, beer, or cider where these … Continue reading
I was noting some headlines involving Rick Santorum’s quote: We birthed a nation from nothing. I mean, there was nothing here. I mean, yes we have Native Americans but candidly there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture. Some … Continue reading
This week, we get a brief overlap in our Jewish and Catholic traditions. At Mass today, Esther’s prayer to God: God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, blessed are you. Help me, who am alone and have … Continue reading
One advantage to claiming tomato as a fruit is that strawberries with a nice combo of romaine lettuce and black olives topped off with a lite raspberry vinaigrette is not so weird. Ages ago I was on a plane trip … Continue reading
Some foods I find difficult to cook. Exotic stuff like squid. Cakes from scratch. Eggplant, definitely. That last one is a vegetable I would like to master, but the best I can do with it is meh. And the worst, … Continue reading
A human being who can digest dairy is a GMO. If you are one of these, your digestive tract can make something healthy for you from that milk sugar molecule on the right. This article sums up something I read … Continue reading
Local sports talk radio was debating the choice yesterday. Growing up, my mom loved to bake and we loved to eat. As I remember it, she made five pies many Thanksgivings: one mincemeat, my dad’s favorite; two pumpkins, and the two … Continue reading
Our local grocery superstore began stocking these a few weeks ago. One of the produce guys was enthusiastic about it. (They usually are if they sniff a sale.) It even has a facebook page. It’s now my favorite melon, and … Continue reading
Today was First Communion for our parish’s youngsters. I had some fun with the group. Neither priest showed up at the group rehearsal yesterday–that’s not a big deal actually. It’s one of the jobs of a liturgist to make sure … Continue reading
In an alphabetical listing of posts on this web site, we have a new last entry. After church tonight, I sautéed a small zucchini in olive oil. I added poppy seeds. I wanted a hint of sweetness and I noticed the young … Continue reading
Okay, so I have a few questions about the Australians considering a restoration of year-round Friday abstinence from meat. Why do we need bishops to tell us when not to eat meat? The US bishops have advocated abstinence and fasting … Continue reading
