News From The Blogosphere
When Blogger had the nice little feature of being able to put clips of other Bloggers' posts on your sidebar, I found that an easy and nice way of sharing what was new and noteworthy around the Blogosphere. Then they did away with it. I tried to do one on my own, but found that keeping up with it on a post by post basis was a bit tedious. So here is what I will try next...
Each week or so I will run a post with links to some of the blog posts I have read over the course of the week that I think are worth sharing-some of them need sharing! Some are from priests' blogs, some from bigger, more well known blogs, some from small and not widely known.
Here are my favorites from the past week:
Bitter Herbs Before the Exodus from These Stone Walls- Fr. Gordon MacRae, whom I have written about before on this blog, has told the story of one of his prison mates who has made known his desire to become Catholic. It is a story that fits right in with this Lenten season and is filled with hope and redemption.
Msgr. Charles Pope over at the Archdiocese of Washington blog has a wonderful reflection on yesterday's Gospel about the Transfiguration of Jesus in Beams of Heaven As I Go. This one is definitely worth the time. I recommend reading it prayerfully when you have a few extra minutes to spare.
Ryan A MacDonald at A Ram in the Thicket has some more insight to the news regarding Fr. Gordon MacRae's possible retrial as well as the not so nice goings on with SNAP and VOTF in his post Why Do SNAP and VOTF Fear the Case of Fr. Gordon MacRae?
And finally, but certainly not least, Victor at A Time For Reflection is serving up lobster with his newly created Lobster award. I would like to thank Victor and Michael at Reach Paradise for this tasty award. Be sure to check their blogs out for more about the award and other wonderful posts
Well that's it for this week. Enjoy!
