To qualify even for consideration you need not only be talented in writing and knowledgeable about our Catholic faith, you need to write often. That is the kicker.
Many a Catholic blogger has stopped blogging due to an increase in the family unit, new job, blogging fatigue, carpal tunnel affliction, and even death. And that’s just a short list.
This particular blogger didn’t allow a growing family nor inclement weather stop him. Not even a beard that has gotten out of control has slowed down this convert.
Being a warrior for Christ, he is horizontally integrated in various forms of media battling heresy and anti-Catholicism in it’s many forms as well as educating the faithful and non-Catholic in our rich and long Catholic Tradition.
Even when his template was no longer supported or his antiquated version of blogger, he stayed the course, WordPress be damned!
Don’t know who this character of the Wild, Wild Web is?
Here is only a sample of the many publications he writes for online:
Crisis Magazine, National Catholic Register, Catholic Exchange, Inside Catholic, and a whole lot more.
