In this week’s Brooklyn Tablet, editor Ed Wilkinson has an editorial praising the blogging forays of Deacon Greg Kandra and myself. Thanks to Ed and to my “blogfather” Deacon Greg, who encouraged me to start this blog in the first place. This has been a load of fun.

When you love something you want to share it, and I hope this blog helps people appreciate what a rich history we have as Catholics.
