Well, we have added a new Catholic blog to our blog roll, OnePeter5.  Run by Steve Skojec, here is his explanation of its mission:

The four marks of the Church are that it is One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. But sadly, in our present age, much of our unity has been lost.

We need to get back to basics. Belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. An understanding of the Four Last Things, and that Heaven is not a foregone conclusion. Adherence to traditional teachings on sexual morality in a world hell-bent on dragging us away from them. A properly-grounded knowledge of the Church’s thought on religious liberty and social justice, and how these impact those of us living in the post-Christian, deconstructionist ruins of Western Civilization. The re-establishment of long-discarded tradition that once made the Church strong, and can do so again.

The statistics aren’t good. Belief in core Catholic teaching among self-identified Catholics is at an all-time low. Liturgical orthodoxy is an endangered concept. We have a vocations crisis that stems directly from the crisis in the sanctuary and the family. And the governments of the world move closer each year to declaring Catholic belief a hate crime.

We long for the return of Christendom. Of a social order predicated upon a proper understanding of God, His Church, her teaching, and natural law. But to get there, we have a lot of work to do.

OnePeterFive exists as a place to begin rebuilding the Catholic ethos. We’re not just here to zero in on the problems, but to offer concrete solutions. We want to restore Catholic culture, rebuild the Church as a patron of the arts, reinvigorate the family and the traditions that keep it strong, reform the liturgy, support vocations, dust off the old devotions and make them relevant again. We want to help infuse the world with beautiful music, inspiring art, families that pray together, parishes centered around the Eucharist, strong communities, and a new generation of Catholics who can effectively bring the Gospel message to a world hostile to that message.

Our writers come from diverse backgrounds, but share a common goal: to work together to restore the beauty, majesty, and glory of the Catholic Church as the principle force for good in a fallen world.

We have a lot of work to do. There’s no time to waste.

Go here to read the rest and find out why they call the blog OnePeter5.   I am sure I will be a regular reader of this blog and steal borrow blogging ideas from them.

  • Thanks so much for the writeup and the link, Donald. I wanted to give you an updated URL, because I noticed on the pingback that the “about” page was going to a “sample-page” URL.

    The fixed link is here: http://www.onepeterfive.com/about/

  • Thank you Steve. I have corrected the link.

  • Thank you, Steve Skojec. 1Peter5 is good. There are two things to which I must respond. First: The bad translation of: “Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders.” The sovereign human person is always referred to as “WHO” in the HOLY SPIRIT. The Person of Jesus Christ is denied His civil rights, in the public square, in His own Church and in His own Sacraments. When the Son of Man is denied His civil rights, all persons are denied their civil rights. So to restore Western Civilization one must restore the dignity of the human person starting with Jesus Christ.
    Two: St. Hildegard of Bingen is a woman and the patron saint of bakers, especially those who bake for the Community Kitchen.
