Rick Yoder on Flannery O'Connor, Philip Neri, Julien Green, and more.

Posting here has been infrequent here in the last little while, mainly because I've been busy enough as a priest and a graduate student that I haven't had much time for blogging. Though my writing here has slowed to a thin trickle, I'm stubborn enough to stick with it even if posting is likely to remain infrequent. I am grateful to those readers who have expressed appreciation for what I write, but I'll also admit that, like many other writers, I ultimately write for myself: this blog is essentially a kind of commonplace book where I record things that I want to remember and also don't mind sharing with a broader public.

In the absence of much new content from me, I would like to commend your attention to a relatively new blogging venture by my friend Rick Yoder, The Amish Catholic. I referenced Rick's work here a few months ago in a post on The Young Pope. Since then, Rick has been churning out excellent posts on topics as varied as the seven sacraments in the work of Flannery O'Connor, Benedictine resonances in the life of St. Philip Neri, and writer Julien Green's relationship with the University of Virginia. Having recently graduated from UVA, Rick will be heading to Oxford this summer to begin graduate school. I wish Rick well as he begins the next stage of his academic life, and as he moves on I hope that he will find time to continue to update his blog. If you appreciate the content that I try to post here from time to time, you may also enjoy The Amish Catholic. AMDG.
