I love Pope John XXIII’s Continue reading

A Theology Blog – Worth the Read


I want to introduce you to a new blog hosted by Saint Joseph’s College of Maine, where the bloggers are my professors. They are a group of highly educated, gifted professors who have so much to share, that they have created their own website to blog about Catholic Theology. Each professor will cover different topics, based upon their expertise. I highly recommend this new site to my followers. You can read the inaugural blog post at:
