Friends, May I ask you to please read the “About” section of this blogging site. It will fully explain the benefit this site can have on the larger conversation that I believe needs to take place between the Catholic faithful and our religious leaders. In the past six plus weeks this site experienced close to 1700 visits. Individuals from London, England, Nigeria, Australia and all parts of the USA from New Hampshire down to Florida, Chicago in the Midwest and westward to Nevada and California. I hope you are one of them. However, your interest in reading these articles is only part of the experience. I would like to invite all to subscribe to this conversation and take part in the ongoing and important work of communicating openly and honestly on matters of religion affecting our church and world. Looking forward to hearing from you.
