The Wisdom of Catholic Rigorous Vortex AUGUST 22, 2020
Just what is the Catholic Rigorous Vortex?
The Rigorous Catholics often declare something sinful where there is no official teaching by the church that certain things are sinful.
The Vortex Catholics deliver what they perceive as the hard-hitting truth. They believe lies and falsehoods are trapped and exposed by this truth.
I lump both of them together as the
Catholic Rigorous Vortex (CRV)

A Non-Political Post about Encouraging Positive Catholics NOVEMBER 13, 2020
William Hemsworth blogs over at Patheos Catholic The Pursuit of Holiness blog.
Matthew Vincent Chicoine blogs in may different places. Voyage Comics, Epic Pew, Catholic Exchange are his regular websites. In the past he wrote for Catholic Stand, Catholic Insight, and did book reviews for Homiletic and Pastoral Review.
I can’t talk about positivity and civility and not mention.. Jimmy Akin.
Fr. Matthew P. Schneider LC is an example of priestly holiness, gentleness and common sense. Fr. Matthew also happens to be autistic which brings a unique worldview to his role as a Catholic priest. He blogs his inspirational writing over at Patheos Catholic Through Catholic Lenses. He sounds like the priest I would want to hear my confession.
Some of the most insightful insights I receive on my timeline come from President and CEO of Ignatius Press Mark Brumley
and Deacon Steven D. Greydanus founder of Decentfilms.com.
For some reason I really like to talk about the glories of speculative fiction women authors. Avelenna covered Fantasy and Renee horror and for Science Fiction we have Karina Fabian.
Sister Christina Marie Neumann works at St. Anne’s Living Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota. And she also blogs at Our Franciscan Fiat the blog of the Franciscan Sisters of Dillingen in our Hankinson Province.
It is inspiring to watch a young, pretty, energetic and plucky Catholic young woman talk about the truth of our Catholic faith. Lizzie Reezay is unique among modern Catholic apologists. She started out as a young protestant teeny bopper and blossomed into a young adult convert Catholic. She is delightful and worth listening to for spiritual pluckiness.
I find Pope Francis to be a good and inspiring leader of our church and is as clear as a bright sunny day. I don’t care what anyone else says he is our holy father here on earth.
But I’ll end with 1 more inspiring female. She is usually positive and is not cruel or mean. She knows how to laugh hard and can also cry very easily. She is passionate about her faith even if she actually struggles with it. She doesn’t write or blog all that often but when she does it is usually poetic. I just want to hug her because she is so lovely and wonderful. I may be biased but she is just one of my favorite people. Her name is Kristin Wilson
There are so many more people I could put here in detail…
Bishop Barron and Word on Fire ministries who helps me to Love Jesus more.
Fr. Mike Schmitz and Father Casey Cole who help bring practical common sense to spirituality.
Joe Harder who leads the FB group The Best of Everything: A Banquet to Which Everyone is Invited.
David Mills a source of wit and great writing.
Christin Jezak A beautiful young catholic actress.
Lino Rulli– Your source for pure Catholic pleasure and comedy.
Bishop Robert Reed and CatholicTV America’s Catholic TV Network
Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP– who sweetly helps you think of death and meeting God through the ancient discipline of memento mori.
Caroline Furlong another great Sci-Fi female Writer
Bob Rice- Youth Leader. Professor. Family Man. Great Singer. All around great guy.
Jaymie Stuart Wolfe Writer. Mother. Another Great Singer.
Domenico Bettinelli who leads the Catholic Nerd podcast network SQPN
Tom and Noelle Crowe finds the hidden gems and compelling stories of Catholic Americans who have contributed to their nation by virtue of their faith over the past three centuries in the great podcast American Catholic History
A Better Discourse JANUARY 14, 2021
Someone knew that I was a writer and thought that this conference would be a good idea for me. At times I’m not sure people know who I am, but here I was listed in a group of popular Catholic writers that included Father Larry Richards, Brandon Vogt, Mark Shea, Gloria Purvis, Michelle Arnold and many more great writers and thinkers.
I must say being invited to an online conference with so many great and wonderful writers lifted me out of my depression of the night before. Someone knew who I was. It was just what I needed to hear at the time.
