As long as you don't skip reading Stella Borealis and the other good Catholic blogs from Minnesota and the vicinity, I guess I don't mind giving you good folks a great reading tip.
There is a relatively new Catholic "Webzine", I guess, out there, entitled Catholic Daily. And they are recruiting the best of the Catholic writers from around the country to obtain their articles. Give it a try. We all know that there are a lot of good writers in our area and two have been selected.
Julie Olson of Epiphany Parish in Coon Rapids was just selected as one of their authors and her article, "The Value of One Holy Communion" heads Catholic Daily's offerings today.
Julie, an "old pal o' mine", is currently a graduate student in the Ave Maria University Institute of Pastoral Theology that will begin offering classes at St Charles Borromeo parish in St Anthony in the Fall. They are looking for students if you are interested.
Erin Bissonnette, of St Peter and Paul Parish in Mankato, has been a Catholic Daily author for some time now. Erin, a wife, mom and part time family nurse practitioner, also between writing articles and blogging at Our Lady's Tears, singing in her choir and her other avocations, must spend a great deal of time just planning her schedule. Raising children must be demanding (and rewarding) enough.
Her current article in Catholic Daily is titled Compunction of Heart.
I'm not going to tell the folks at Catholic Daily about all our other great blogging writers here. Losing one to them is bad enough. Let them do their own searching for authors.
Congratulations to Erin and Julie. May the authorial Muse strike hard and often!
- O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
- The brightest heaven of invention,
- A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
- And monarchs to behold the swelling scene! Henry V, Act 1
