Mid-year recap

Hi everyone,

 

It’s been too long since I posted.  I have good reason (sounding tired every time I say that).

First, the articles.  Those of you who are on Facebook and members of the Quidquid Facebook group know all about my recent articles published throughout the year, including the ones published through Those Catholic Men.  Many of these post continue the mission of this blog, namely that they are works of Catholic apologetics.  Two of the articles look at the Inquisition and one examines the Galileo controversy.  I recently published one that is more centered on recent eruptions of violence in our nation, less on Catholic apologetics, but it should interest readers of this blog.

 

So there’s one reason I’ve been away from the blog.

 

Another exciting one is because my wife and I were planning a trans-Atlantic trip to England.  We both submitted paper proposals to the 2016 Tolkien Seminar in Leeds, UK; both were accepted, and we gave our talks at the beginning of July.  Unfortunately, my wife’s talk was not recorded, but mine was, and you can watch it here.  It was a great trip (albeit a bit stressful, as all traveling is), and it was great to talk to people interested in one of the greatest writers of the last century and (maybe) even evangelize a little.

 

So that’s the other reason. . .

 

Hey, did you know today’s the feast of St. Martha?  That’s right, she has her own feast day.  AND there’s a Quidquid article on her and her sister Mary which you can read to tide you over until the next blog post which will hopefully be sooner than. . . seven months from now.

 

Remember, if you have any questions about the Faith, what the Church teaches on something, or an objection to the Catholic Church, ask away!  See the top of the blog for how to do that.

Where is he?

Hey everyone!

Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about the Laudato Si series.  In fact, I have the next part almost ready to post!

But I’ve been really busy.

School started, so there’s been all of THAT chaos going on.  Plus there’s Rosebud 2.0 coming in November, so all of that’s been fun.

AND if that wasn’t enough, I’ve also been reading a book to review for Homiletic and Pastoral Review, running a series for young adults at St. Veronica’s in Chantilly, and I had an article published on Catholic Exchange.

I also had the chance to go to Philadelphia with some of my students to see Pope Francis.  We did get to see him Saturday, as he drove into the Festival of Families.  So exciting!  Earlier last week we watched his speech to Congress live.  That was really exciting for me. . . maybe not as much for my students, but definitely for me.  I liked his speeches, at least the one’s I’ve read.  He did clarify some points that he had made in the past and, contrary to what some people say, he hit on some important pro-life points.

Read through his talks, when you get the chance.
