The Glories of the Past Ancient Egypt was a unique culture whose magic reaches down the millennia to us through words such as mummies, pyramids, the Sphinx, Tutankhamun, pharaohs, and curses. Napoleon Bonaparte’s expedition to Egypt in 1798 initiated the modern era of Egyptomania: We can say that Bonaparte, Vivant Denon (the head of his scientific team), and others discovered ancient Egypt for everyone. The publication of the Description de l’Égypte and the discovery of the Rosetta Stone can be… Read more

But there are some simple things we can do to help stop the spread so we can then return to regular normal life, if that is actually ever possible. Recently in Covid News I personally had a friend who died from Covid-19 and her whole family. Broadway actor… Read more

We live in an age where anybody can post anything online anywhere.  But sometimes people want to break into the big time. They want their small no-nothing blog to be uplifted and given an bigger audience. And of course sometimes the person in charge has to discriminate and stamp a big fat NO on their request. Well readers, I looked into the archives of Patheos Catholic and read some of the people whose blogs have been rejected for one reason… Read more

Dear African Americans, Hello, most of you don’t know me.  Statically speaking almost none of you do.  My name is Kristin Wilson.  I was born and raised in the United States, though according to one of those spit collection tests I am primarily Irish, with skin white like snow covered in brown dots that look like they are trying to reach out to one another, otherwise known as freckles. I call it my Celtic pigment. I am sorry for the… Read more

The Catholic Bard is still new and getting the swing and hang of the whole blogging thing. As much as we would like to, we often skip commenting on significant Catholic feast days, memorials and solemnity’s, as well as celebrated national American holidays. This is not done on purpose or protest or neglect or out of disrespect. Sometimes you forget, are unaware or just don’t notice what day it is. So, I thought it would be good to actually give… Read more

When I sent out questions for my fellow Patheos Catholic Writers  to answer most of them answered with short precise answers. But Fr. Stephanos Pedrano from Prince of Peace Abbey went above and beyond the call of duty and gave a portrait of his life as a Benedictine monk. His two answers he gave to my first two questions were a tad bit too long to include in my composite post. Such are the tough choices made as an editor…. Read more

One of my goals as the Catechist at Catholic Bard is to bring Patheos Catholic Writers together.  Several of my posts have brought snippets from different PCWS to form a composite narrative on a particular subject or theme.  I decided that a creative collaboration would be a good idea and so I sent out a bunch of questions and asked our blogging family to answer them. Those who decided to participate in this endeavor, you can read in this post… Read more
