The American Catholic
As Donald noted yesterday, it’s been a year since we started here at The American Catholic. I know we’ve all been pleased both at the quality of the writing from the team as a whole, and also from the interest from our readers.
Looking back over the last year, we put together a list of some of the our favorite posts.

I find it hard to believe, but The American Catholic is celebrating its one year birthday today. I’ve enjoyed writing for the blog over the past year immensely, and I hope our readers and commenters have also had some fun. Contributors will be linking to some of their favorite posts. Here are two of mine:
1. report-to-the-emperor-first-draft-I posted this on Good Friday and I think I will make this a blog tradition of doing so each year.
2. triumph-of-the-king-This I posted on Palm Sunday.
My friend and colleague Christopher Blosser is having some computer trouble. Two of his posts that I greatly admire are:
In regard to Chris this list would be quite lengthy if I included all the posts he has written which I wish I had written! Writer envy, it is a terrible thing!
I am sure the next year will be as crowded with events as the last one was. The American Catholic will be here to comment on the passing scene, as Americans and Catholics, with, I trust, a leavening of humor and at least a dash of common sense.
