Patheos Catholic Introduces Ben Conroy and Tom Zampino

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 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...]

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...]

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...]

Patheos Celebrates 5 Years: The Best Memory is YOU

Happy Fifth

Be on the lookout, for the next couple of days, for horns blowing and confetti flying at random as you open pages here at Patheos, because we're celebrating our Fifth Anniversary online! Woohoo! (#patheos5yrs), and we're making it interesting, too, by giving you a lot to look at and learn about starting with some background on our energetic founding under Leo and Cathie Brunnick, and also a little bit about how we've grown as a 'net presence (the Catholic Channel alone averages over 2 million … [Read more...]

PEG O’ My Heart: Patheos goes Parisian!

pascal-emmanuel-gobry

It is a great pleasure to announce that we've gone "international" with the creation of a new blog here at Patheos Catholic."Inebriate Me" is hosted by Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry (or as everyone on Twitter and Facebook knows him, "PEG"), who is writing from Paris.The blog's title is, of course, the prayerful plea that is part of the Anima Christi, often mistakenly credited to Saint Ignatius of Loyola, and PEG brings a taste for Ignatian spirituality to his blog, where he writes:I like the … [Read more...]

Jen Fitz “Sticking it” to you, at Patheos

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...]

A Catholic Thinker: Patheos’ Newest Catholic Blog

catholic thinker header

Unless you're deeply reading into the Catholic blogosphere, it's unlikely you've ever come across Tod Worner before, but I'm pretty sure that once you begin, you'll be quick to bookmark his blog, A Catholic Thinker, which I am very happy to be bringing into the mix, over here.Why am I so happy? Because the only thing I like better than a good writer is a good writer who likes to really think, and is able to write well on whatever has his head of a moment; as I discovered when I read his … [Read more...]

Patheos Welcomes Billy Kangas and The Orant

billykangas

Up until now, Leah Libresco -- who was baptized and received into the faith just about a year ago -- was our "youngest" Catholic both chronologically and religiously. She's still the youngest among us but she's almost an old-lady Catholic compared to Billy Kangas, who was received into the church last Easter, and has been making a lot of Catholic noise since even before then, and seems therefore a swell fit for PatheosCatholic.If you're not familiar with Billy, he lives in DC, where he is … [Read more...]
