    Personally as a new Catholic so to speak, I want to absorb any and all things Catholic on your blog.The good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Father, your blog is a delight and has a wonderful, definitive “voice.”I especially appreciate the liturgical eye-candy, like the current picture in World views.

    Well, I like everything you post. I think yours is one of the few blogs I follow that I always read every post.What keeps me coming back most, though, would be spiritual musings and all the satirical pieces. I don’t know if I could choose between your alternate identities to pick a favorite.

    Most love Mantilla the Hon…but I will adnit, I like it all.Keep going Father!

    Defining what the Church teaches, is ways we can all understand.

    The top pick for me are probably your pieces like ‘Angry and Aggressive Atheism’, ‘God is Good’ and the like. I guess those come under Spiritual Musings.Next up, the satirical pieces.I also like hearing about what’s going on in your parish/school community, which I find sometimes blends into liturgical stuff.More poetry wouldn’t hurt.

    I really like liturgical “stuff” but that’s one of my main interests.Overall – you have a nice mix of diverse postings. Todd is really funny….

    Hey Todd has expanded my vocabulary:unctuous: revealing or marked by a smug, ingratiating, and false earnestness or spiritualityOne certainly must think; and will likely learn something when reading Standing on My Head.

    I like it all, and yes, more poetry would be appreciated. I rarely have a day in which I don’t check your blog to see what’s going on. Thanks, Father!

    While I very much appreciate the satire, the poetry and the pretty pictures–I truly do love it all, Father–I especially love it when you delve into the depths of the whys and hows of all things Catholic. It is eye-opening to read your blog…it is soul-searching which keeps me coming back for a good read day in and day out. The humor, the intellect, the depth of compassion–it is all here, and it is all wonderful.

    I wouldn’t ask us lot(your readers),we’re rarely satisfied.I dunno how you put up with some of the appalling comments(yes I do mean me)!”Unless the Lord directs the posts,the blogger labors in vain”I think God has His Framework well established,even if you can’t see the finished building until the next world.Just commit the work to Him,and relax.Oh,and insist we all pray for you too.

    I like your news, opinions, and stuff on spirituality and liturgy. Mantilla’s pretty funny, but I’m not a fan of the other personalities. But I’m probably too sensitive on certain issues. Overall I definitely love your blog and your sense of humor. I miss our RCIA class.

    I enjoy all of your blog, but especially liturgical stuff and parish stuff. I know a number of people who are coming around on liturgy, and it’s helpful to hear well-articulated explanations for why we do what we do.

    There is not a piece you have written that I have not read…having said this, my personal preferences are (3)spiritual musings and (7)personal stuff. You don't "get personal" too often, but when you do, healing occurs! BTW, anyone here who has not read & worked through your books–particularly "Rosary for Healing" and "St. Benedict and St. Terese"–has missed a wonderful opportunity for spiritual growth. These days, for sanity and soul reasons, I stay away from political & secular stuff as much as possible. Gets too rancorous and probably not gonna get me to heaven…Blessings on all you do in His name

    Not the new Anglican Rev: the tone is wrong; it’s Anglicanism that you should be criticising, not Anglicans. You sound uncharitable rather than teasing.But please, please, carry on with the rest.

    Fr L. I enjoy it all. Just found your site recently and look forward to checking in a couple of times a day. Don’t want to miss anything. I do have to admit that Mantilla is a favorite and Todd is a close second and now comes the Vicar…. One has to wonder how many other personalities are still awaiting to come out.Thanks Fr. for some common sense, interesting and thought provoking reading.

    I agree, I read every post with relish! My personal favourites are the sort of polemical posts where you justify a Catholic viewpoint in a very persuasive & accessible way. Both on specific Church teachings and more conceptual points about society & atheism & general prevailing mistaken attitudes.I first tuned in when you were talking about Sola Scriptura, Friday Fish & stuff – very useful, because so many of us find it very difficult to have to justify what we do to atheists, protestants and more liberal-minded or apathetic Catholics alike. You have a clear style of argument, and incisive insights into our culture.Satire is brilliant, but depressing that the media is indeed like that. And I always love to hear good old Blighty affectionately ribbed from across the pond.Blatant fan ;)
