Anonymous asked: What about the National Catholic Register? Which others in Catholic blogosphere do you like? Anchoress?
I also like the National Catholic Register and Catholic News Service for Catholic news. I wish I could recommend more blogs (such as the Anchoress, about whom I’ve heard good things), but I can’t recommend something which I haven’t had the time to read (stupid time-consuming doctoral program). My apologies to other sites/blogs/writers. BUT: feel free to create a list of your own favorite and recommended sites. Or tweet some favorites at me (MaryHomegirl) and I’ll gladly retweet. The more cyber resources and voices for/of the faithful, the better.
I have had many requests from followers that I recommend resources and websites that might help them to better understand and live their faith. Please note that these sites are quite different, but I think that each adds something important and is a needed voice in the harmony that is Catholic theology, spirituality, teaching, and life. Here’s what I came up with:
Favorite Catholic lifestyle/spirituality site:
The Catholic Catalogue: Superb writing and snippets of Catholic spirituality. A truly lovely resource for everyday Catholic life
Favorite theological blogs by up-and-coming theologians:
Daily Theology: “Faith seeking understanding in everyday life,” featuring the world-famous semi-annual Theological Shark Week
Women in Theology: the ecumenical theological perspectives of women in theology
Oblation: Liturgy and Evangelization from Notre Dame’s Center for Liturgy
Millennial Journal: the world’s issues according to Catholic Millennials
Favorite sites run by religious orders:
The Jesuit Post: Young Jesuits “thinking and writing at the intersection of faith and culture” (and sometimes interviewing yours truly)
Busted Halo: “An online magazine for spiritual seekers” run by the Paulists. A great resource for new and returning Catholics
Favorite Catholic News Sources:
NCR: The National Catholic Reporter has all your breaking Catholic news
John Allen: Once at NCR, now at the Boston Globe, John Allen is one of America’s best reporters on the papacy, the Vatican, and American Catholic issues
Whispers in the Loggia: Rocco Palmo is your go-to source for news on episcopal and papal matters, usually before the news even breaks. Feel like a Vatican insider (even if you don’t recognize a single name)
AND I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WARPED NOTIONS I’M DEALING WITH
Thanks to mycontagiouslove for the idea!
Finished + imperfect > unfinished
And I’m sure it’s not creepy at all.
