That would be a longtime FOB (Friend of the Bench) Pat McNamara, who is bringing his superlative historical self-titled blog to Patheos.
Elizabeth has the scoop:
I’ve been pestering him to do it for a while, and today he does, so ladies and gents, may I introduce you to McNamara’s Blog, at Patheos — a little feast of American Catholic history served up by a fellow who is never so happy as when he is focusing his lenses on Ages Past and then bringing his gleanings to the rest of us.
He’s Irish, he’s from Queens, and now he’s all ours!
Welcome aboard, Pat!
Check him out. And plan to revisit often.
