Every day in every way, this man is Larry D.

You may have noticed a disturbance in the atmosphere. Or the appearance of arguments backed up with numbers and statistics.Do not be afraid.It is just the Catholic Channel, expanding again, to accommodate two new bloggers, Larry D's Acts of the Apostasy, which strikes out in satire, and Jane the Actuary's um...Jane, the Actuary, which brings a mind locked into the logic of numbers to bear on subjects as disparate as politics and prayer.Larry really is a satirist. Jane really is an … [Read more...]

Launching a Lenten Rescue of my Brain

Image mine, click to enlarge

The other day a friend asked me what I was doing for Lent, and I immediately launched into plans for articles I hoped bloggers here in the Catholic Channel would be undertaking."No," she said. "I meant you, personally, what are you planning for Lent?"That inspired a longish reply full of lugubriously spiritual yearnings all introspect-y and lumbering gracelessly toward what passes for deep thoughts in my plebeian brain, but somewhere in there was an acknowledgement that I'm feeling a … [Read more...]

In celebration of the Year of Consecrated Life, today is a particular sort of "open house" day for many religious orders; nuns and brothers and priests are greeting guests in parlors and chapels, showing something of their homes and how they live their lives.Kathryn Jean Lopez got a bit of a jumpstart on the day by sharing tea and laughs with the Summit Dominicans who, when we last left them, were rescuing an older nun from a freezing elevator.Religious tend to be optimistic and … [Read more...]

Andrew Sullivan is Done With the Dishes…

angry-typewriter

...he's looking for another way to live and work:Why? Two reasons. The first is one I hope anyone can understand: although it has been the most rewarding experience in my writing career, I’ve now been blogging daily for fifteen years straight (well kinda straight). That’s long enough to do any single job. In some ways, it’s as simple as that. There comes a time when you have to move on to new things, shake your world up, or recognize before you crash that burn-out does happen.The second i … [Read more...]

Patheos Catholic Welcomes Michael Novak!

novak banner

While introducing readers to a new Patheos Catholic blogger, particularly one who has great writing chops but may have flown under the radars, biographical information can sometimes be a little thin; sometimes research is required.This is not the case with Michael Novak, whose new blog, Coming Down to Earth debuts today with a reminiscence of Lithuania and the Divine Mercy. In Michael's case, the biographical material is so plentiful it needs its own editor, or I'll get nothing else done … [Read more...]

Image Source

Got a wonderful email from a reader who is being received into the Catholic Church in 2015, and it is in many ways thanks to internet web sites, both secular and religious. Writes this reader, whose privacy I am protecting, but who is very excited to be entering the church:In the beginning was National Review Online, back when Jonah Goldberg was starting it up and the blogosphere was young...NRO named lileks.com as their Site of the Day. I started reading the Daily Bleat, and I noticed two … [Read more...]

Patheos Adds Artur Sebastian Rosman & Lisa Mladinich!

shutterstock mind gears

Yesterday, we welcomed Kyle Cupp and Rebecca Lane Frech to the Catholic channel, and today, as promised, we introduce two more bloggers to the mix.When you look up "Phenomenology, Catholic" in a search engine, a few names will instantly surface: Pope Saint John Paul II, Saint Edith Stein, and, in time, I have no doubt, Artur Sebastian Rosman. Not because he's a saint (who am I to judge?) but because, as Sam Rocha notes, he writes on Phenomenology** a lot!Please make welcome the great … [Read more...]
