This week’s cache of newly archived articles completes the little series on the liturgy which was first published at Catholic Digest magazine. There’s my observation that the British have a blind spot about some of their most world famous and excellent writers and a question about the wisdom of Pope Francis celebrating the Protestant Revolution.

These article are reserved for Donor Subscribers. Donor Subscribers have access to a whole range of extra material on the blog as well as special offers and opportunities. The reason I ask people to support the blog by being a Donor Subscriber is because I have resisted all temptations to have external advertising on the blog. There will be no pop ups letting you know that somebody somewhere has been spying on your internet shopping. There are not ads tempting you to look at how plastic surgery has mutilated your favorite star from Gilligan’s Island and no ads you don’t want to look at about men’s underwear or intimate medications.

Also, my blog is just my blog as it has always been. Sure. It’s expanded and updated and looks better and there are podcasts and stuff, but I don’t have a big support team and benefactors with deep pockets financing my mission. Just you.

So if you can support the blog at the Premier level of $8.95 a month (that’s less than $2.25 a week) it would be a great help. If you want to support the work at a lower level you can now become a Podcast Level Donor Subscriber at $4.95 a month. Go here to learn more and sign up!
