Kat and the Crescat: New to Patheos

Kat and the Crescat: New to Patheos September 30, 2011

Well, when I announced that Mark Shea was bringing his blog over, I told you to watch for more developments — at least four more, possibly ten.

Well, here is the second: Katrina Fernandez, whom you might know as the Catholic-Cannonball-Award-conferring, art-loving, gut-busting Crescat, has announced that she’ll be moving her always-entertaining blog to Patheos, within the next day or two — she is unpacking as you read this!

You can take a gander at where the new design is going (and bookmark her new site address) here.

And not only is she moving the blog, but she’s staked out a bit of real estate in our Columnist Row. Today she debuts a twice-monthly column which she calls “More than Mortal Beauty” (yes, taken from the Vespers antiphon) and she pounds the first stake with a sledgehammer aimed at those unhappy women who make it tough for the rest of us, namely, The Shrews:

Like reverse sexism, this belittling of men seems to be 100 percent acceptable. It’s even used as the tie that binds in building female relationships—commiserating over the “miserableness” of the male species. I understand it can be hard to make friends when meeting people for the first time, but making your husband the butt of jokes is not the way to endear yourself to me. It’s not just insulting to your husband but to me as well, a single woman who would love to have a spouse to promise to honor and respect. It’s like waving a steak in front of a starving person and proclaiming it tastes like garbage and tossing it to the floor.

Yep. That’s Katrina. She will keep you on your toes!.

Speaking of which — keep alert. More news, more announcements about some of your favorite blogs and columnists coming soon!
