Tough nuns

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

I came across this web called Ask Sister Mary Martha. The tagline is: “Life is tough. Nuns are tougher. If you need helpful advice, just ask Sister Mary Martha. She’ll help you. Just don’t expect any sympathy.”

Here she blogs about Father Damien, a saint in waiting.

Whispers

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

As I am learning, there are scores of blogs devoted to all things and all aspects of things Catholic. Among the more consistently compelling is Whispers in the Loggia (a great moniker!) written by Philadelphian Rocco Palmo. His posts are serious, journalistic and in-depth with an eye toward church leadership and church politics, from Rome to local dioceses. This post, for example, notes a counter-intuitive notion: in some places in the U.S., the number of new priests entering the ranks is actually increasing. Padre Gaetano Catanoso, recently named the patron saint of parish priests, would be pleased.
