I have not been blogging regularly as of late. Any writing that I have been doing has been for my graduate studies. The same goes for reading. The good thing is that I am studying precisely what I enjoy studying: philosophy and theology. I have also been taking a break from reading a lot of Catholic blogs. I started to get frustrated with the political nature of the blogs, whether it is on the Vatican or American politics. The more I study Church History the less I worry about the Church. Yes, disturbing things come up, but that is how it has always been. Perhaps when I have time, I can revamp some of my writing to focus more on holiness and less on the Fallen nature of the world. There needs to be a balance, but I want my writing to help people on the journey, not fuel anxiety and anger.
I want to thank any of you who have supported Help Nasara. The plight of Christians in the Middle East is dire. We have raised $429 for CNEWA. Please continue to get the work out as well as pray and fast.
