Patheos Welcomes Marge Fenelon!

Marge Fenelon

You've heard her mellifluous tones gracing the airways on Relevent Radio's Morning Air program, and EWTN's Son Rise Morning Show, and you may have recently caught her providing live coverage and commentary for EWTN's coverage of the the international broadcast of the Schoenstatt Movement’s Centennial events. In fact, if you're looking up these days, you're likely to see Marge Fenelon, somewhere, including -- in 2014 -- Israel, where she covered Pope Francis' visit, and Rome, where she p … [Read more...]

Anchoress Blog Hits the Big 1-0!

10 years

This morning I realized that it was just about ten years ago that I was ignobly kicked out of a political discussion forum and found myself needing to opine endlessly, without a vehicle for blabbing. As we all know, no one puts Blabby in a corner, so Blogspot accessed -- the easiest blogging tool for a technophobe like me to handle -- and thus was thrown together The Anchoress Blog:In the beginning was the persona, and the persona was weird. And the persona was anonymous because I already … [Read more...]

Our "Week of Adding Many Bloggers" is coming to a close, (although there may yet be one more name added by Friday!) with two bloggers who may -- for now -- be only marginally familiar to Patheos readers. It is surely a nice, and a gratifying thing when we can add well-known authors and writers and thinkers to our ranks, but being a baseball fan, I appreciate the value of creating a kind of "farm team" too; spotting good unknown writers and giving them a platform has often proven to be just the … [Read more...]

Patheos Welcomes Dr. Pia de Solenni to the Mix!

One of the great pleasures and challenges of assembling the Catholic channel at Patheos has been presenting a broad-but-balanced-view of Catholicism -- one that is not-too-conservative, nor too-progressive in scope, but finds the more common middle area between those extremes, wherein most Catholics reside.For most Catholics, in fact, arriving at Catholic Orthodoxy is a process. Our faith is difficult, sometimes; that's what makes it great.Catholicism demands not "blind obedience" but … [Read more...]

StickingtheCorners banner

Possibly, in visiting our channel's landing page, you have noticed a new thumbnail on the left side, one that suggests this image:That would be the banner of a new blog by Jennifer Fitz, who wants her readers to "Live it like you mean it" -- it being the faith, of course, but knowing Jen, I think she also means every aspect of our lives: marriage, illness, parenting, work -- live it all like you mean it.Between living her own life like she means it, writing here and here, and here, … [Read more...]

It's only taken seven years, but a member of the mainstream media is finally asking "what are they thinking?"That would be the formerly "respectable" Howard Kurtz, the Columbia J-school grad who wrote for the Washington Post and worked for CNN and the Daily Beast, before he fell from grace and landed at Fox News, where he writes: What on earth is the FCC thinking?The last thing we need is the government mucking around with news content.The title of this Big Brother-ish effort by the … [Read more...]
