My editor here at Patheos Catholic, Sam Rocha, has a note for all of you at The Font.
The Font, as Sam says, is a repository of a lot of good writing that used to be curated by the former channel editor Elizabeth Scalia. In this post, Sam wants to publicly acknowledge the debt we owe to Elizabeth for starting this thing and how we are continuous in that vision, even though we are forging ahead. My favourite part of this vision is that I get to do whatever I want here, which is music to my Eastern Catholic ears – I think sometimes we Eastern Catholics are still reeling from the exhortation by the Latin Church to actually be Eastern.
Of course, this means that I will continue to write about Sam. On the big throat-clearing Pope Francis post, I in fact wrote about how he influenced my journey toward Eastern Catholicism. But this is not about him; it is about his letter, which of course is about his personhood, but I don’t have time to get into it yet. Go and read it.
