Two of My Favourite Things

I got this email from a friend this morning:

This is an easy way to support LifeSiteNews!

Amazon has good prices. They sell things in many areas, both big and small!

My wife needs to buy a laptop and Amazon prices were very competitive.
Depending on how many other people buy things throught the LifeSite
Amazon portal, LifeSite will get between $50-90 from our purchase

Please forward to others!! Please share on social networks and with
fellow parishioners and parish administrators.

I imagine 100 parishes and pro-lifers could easily get LifeSite up to
8% of all purchases every month!

PS: You must use the LifeSite Amazon portal!

Here is the hyperlink.

Happy shopping!

New Additions

I think women-bloggers are beginning to be encouraged that they have a valuable place at the SCCB! So, our latest is Catherine, who blogs at Sacred Sharings for the Soul.

And, it's about time, a LifeSite editor whose blog will link with ours! (I have tried to link to LifeSiteNews many times, btw.) This one is by their Canadian Bureau Chief, my old colleague, Patrick Craine, who blogs at Pilgrim's Journal. His wife's blog has been on our list for many moons: Last Things First.

Updating the List

I got rid of blogs that have not updated in over six months. I hope Michael Coren updates soon - he's next on the chopping block.

Why Don't I Bash More?

Some readers and participants might be a little disappointed in me, that I don't take on the kind of editorial leadership that one might expect of someone like me. Why don't I more often condemn what needs condemning, and praise what needs praising?

Short answer - that's your job. I just rebroadcast your thoughts. They're more interesting than mine. Also, I do some of that on thetheologyofdad.

Longer answer - truthfully, I think many Catholic bloggers would share my thought: if you don't have anything good to say, why be just one more blog pointing out the bad? If people didn't get the point from reading Fr. Z, Akin or Shea in the U.S., or Socon or Bust or Heresy Hunter in Canada, why do I think they would get it from my reiteration? I'd rather celebrate the Culture of Life than spend my time decrying the Culture of Death. I think a blogger can't ignore patent evil, but he does equally wrong when he fails to celebrate the life we've been given in Christ.

Often it hardly seems like we have good stories to share. But then again, Sunday marks the ninety-third anniversary of the end of World War I. That's a good story. That marked, just as World War II marked, the victory of freedom over tyranny. We can certainly hope for other victories to come.

Anudder Mudder

I am happy to announce the addition of Stephanie Potter's blog - Woman.Wife.Mother.

I have the feeling that mothers represent the largest demographic among Catholic bloggers, and yet, alas, so many of them want their blogs to remain private. (Some of my friends know that I am talking about them here.)

Anyway, welcome aboard, Stephanie! We look forward to reading.

Great New Blogs

I'm happy to present a new blog that I was just informed about, that of the well-known Damian Goddard who didn't tote the party line on marriage at Sportsnet:
