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...]

The Bishop Who Knows His Way Around New Media

Bishop Christopher Coyne

That would be Bishop Christopher Coyne, lately of Indianapolis, and now the Bishop-Designate of Burlington, Vermont.His move has inspired him to update and upgrade his website, "Let us Walk Together" (aka www.bishopcoyne.org), and it's all-around, pretty great, with a blog, his podcasts his social media activities, which are always full of great spiritual prompts or good humor, and sometimes simply present the bishop talking to us as he's driving, in a very casual and informal way.He … [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...]

The Spirit Moves Through the ‘Net in Mysterious Ways

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...]

6* Questions for Jennifer Fulwiler

fulwiler

Jennifer Fulwiler is one of those people I can't keep up with. I blink and she's got a successful blog. I blink again and she's got a reality show.I come back from retreat and she has another baby, and an annual woman's conference.I get momentarily distracted and she's released a bestselling memoir; I take a little nap and awake to discover that she's got a radio show on Sirus!Seriously? I can't even get through my email, and she's getting through a half-dozen lifetimes! And … [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...]

Patheos Welcomes Kyle Cupp and Rebecca Frech!

firecracker

It is a rare thing for the Patheos Catholic Channel to announce the launch of two blogs at once, and we're only doing it this time, and the next two times, in order to avoid announcing six new bloggers at once -- and great scott, they all look so young! -- which might cause distraction and a general feeling of being overwhelmed.Call it, then, "The Week of Launching New Patheos Bloggers". We take great pleasure in kicking it off thusly:Kyle Cupp is a husband, a dad, and a freelance … [Read more...]

Sometimes you just have to say, “okay, fly away…”

Mama Bird Waves Bye Bye

So, Max Lindenman, one of our earliest bloggers here at the Catholic channel, has folded up his tent, for now. He's gone all Bedouin on us, and is going to be wandering the heated deserts of the secular freelance world:After a long hiatus and a lot of hard thought, I’ve decided to close up shop here at Patheos. With all the loyalty and generosity you’ve shown, you’ve earned an explanation, so here it is:I’m not enough of a Catholic to blog about being a Catholic. At best, my faith is an o … [Read more...]

David Mills Comes to Patheos

button down mind

Early in his career, Bob Newhart won several Grammy awards (including "Album of the Year") for his his debut comedy album, "The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart".Something about David Mills' new blog at Patheos reminds me of that album. It's look is deliberately buttoned-down and unfussy. There are no extraneous photos, and nothing is presented to you but the Mind of David Mills.Whether you think that mind buttoned-down or not is of course a matter of perspective. Some may remember Mills … [Read more...]

Not Firing Anyone: Kiss Hands Before Round 2

Sadly, while I did indeed bring everyone's intentions with me to the Holy Land, I was not able to pray in the holiest of places. I was denied Jerusalem thanks to a case of pneumonia that sent me home and then quickly to hospital. But know I did pray, and even in a hospital bed, gasping for breath, I offered it up for your intentions. It was the best I could do.I will write about Israel later, when I am well and stronger. Right now, I am forced to use this puny amount of energy I possess in … [Read more...]
