There are two bloggers whose posts I cannot wait to read.
One is The Anchoress. She has has become a goto person for me for all things Catholic and has been a tremendous boon to my faith. Of course I recognize she's human and will at some point let me down, nevertheless, she's a must read for me personally.
The other is Tod Worner and his latest piece confirms for me why I love to read what he puts up:
We are observing the wreckage of ISIS from positions of great privilege. From our convenient perches in the West, we can wear several layers defending against an autumn chill, warmly sip a cappuccino, peer through our half-moons at the full expanse of the Sunday New York Times and shake our heads at the larger world we live in. As we consider the groceries we’ll order or our next iPad upgrade, we find ourselves jarred by the image of a refugee child, a grown man on his knees pleading for his life before execution (in vain) and a woman our mother’s age navigating a rocky mountainwith a walker. Whether we know it our not, in this moment – in this very moment – we are being confronted with a truth that shatters all the “enlightened” theories we have been dreamily nursed on for years.
In the post-modern world, we have been led to believe that truth is relative to person, place, time and culture. This notion has led many to approach different faiths, cultures, nations and people with the exalted virtues of open-mindedness and tolerance. By allowing our “firmly-held” principles to be subordinate to the principles of others, we are commended as being enlightened and unofficious. But there are two important logical conclusions that follow from this practice.
Now, there's lots of context here so please, do yourself the favor of reading the whole thing and to consider passing it along.
It will be beneficial, for you, and for others who'll read it.
