Be Proud of Being a Catholic! PRODIGAL CATHOLIC WRITER - April 13, 2013 Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift. Below are excerpts of an article written by non-Catholic Sam Miller – a prominent Cleveland Jewish businessman: "Why would newspapers carry on a vendetta on one of the most important institutions that we have today in the United States , namely the Catholic Church? Do you know - the Catholic Church educates 2.6 million students everyday at the cost to that Church of 10 billion ...http://prodigalcatholicwriter.blogspot.com/2013/04/be-proud-of-being-catholic.html
One's Parish Is Not One's Property AND SOMETIMES TEA - March 11, 2013 I know, I know, the Catholic blogosphere is supposed to be all Papabilia all the time this week--who do you want to see elevated to the papacy, who would be a disaster, is it time for an American pope (short answer: h-e-double-hockesticks no!) and on and on. But if I joined the other Catholic bloggers in endless chatter about this stuff, you might end up missing the story of the Indiana Catholic parish that is bitterly divided over a ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2013/03/ones-parish-is-not-ones-property.html

Wolfer, as we were of a different ...http://fatherschnippel.blogspot.com/2013/01/good-bye-to-brother-priest.html
