Around the 'Net . . .
- Steve Mattson ("In Formation" -- back online!), on finding some balance the Balthasar way. Welcome back, Steve -- although I certainly could understand your leave of absence, your voice is greatly appreciated.
- From Fr. Rob Johansen: A Pinellas County, Fla., teacher -- who is disabled and works with disabled students- - claims she is being fired because she voiced her support for Terri Schindler Schiavo.
- The Meandering Mind of a Seminarian shares his thoughts on hypocracy and Christianity.
- Please pray for Peter Nixon's grandfather
- Claude Muncey ("One Pilgrim's Walk") reflecting on the provocative article "Factions In The Church" by Catholic musician/monk John Michael Talbot:
- Recently, on another blog, someone asked where all the liberal Catholic bloggers were. One response, which I will paraphrase (and therefore take responsibliity for) was that they were "too busy working on soup lines and such." This did not go over well -- but I find that there is more than a little truth there. . . . some of the self proclaimed "orthodox Catholics" that I have run into, on the net and off, have spiritual lives that seem to me just as unbalanced spiritually, while being perfectly correct doctrinally. There is more to the spiritual life than correct doctrine and practice, as necessary as that certainly is. Too many are trying to live a Christian life with a orthodox mind and an angry heart. And I cannot think of a combination more likely to drive away those we need to attract, to pass on that which we have been given."
- Not sure if A Saintly Salmagundi has discovered this yet, and it would probably fit his wacky sense of humor -- but check out The Hebrew Hammer (and don't forget to play Gentile Invaders!)
