Longtime Patheos readers are familiar with Father Michael Duffy, although they may remember him best as Seminarian Michael Duffy, who shared with them his thoughts on the clerical collar as both yoke and witness and the seminary as seedbed for lifelong growth.
Deacon Greg noted his June 9th ordination for the Diocese of Rockville Centre, and today we welcome him as our newest blogger as he launches “Father, Where Art Thou?”; A Newly-Minted Priest Explores His Fatherhood.
By beginning the blog, Father Duffy is heeding Pope Benedict’s call for Catholic priests, religious and layfolk to “give the internet a soul” and thus serve the New Evangelization. I expect we’ll be treated to some thoughtful takes on faith and the life of service — particularly interesting through the eyes of a priest in his first years — and to some homilies and some fun as well, so check out Fr. Duffy’s blog, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter (or subscribe to his RSS Feed)!
