Four articles are uploaded today into the Archived Articles section of the blog.
This section is reserved for Donor Subscribers. As a reminder of the benefits Donor Subscribers receive, each month I send out my Boox Grab Box–about twenty or so new (or slightly used) books free for the asking. It’s first come, first served and my list of Donor Subscribers drop me an email and I send them the book they ask for. Today they received a free offer I negotiated for them from Catholic Productions – Dr Brant Pitre’s lecture in audio or video form of the Jewish Roots of Holy Week. They were also able to receive a free copy of my book Slubgrip Instructs. Learn about the benefits of being a Donor Subscriber here.
The Donor Subscribers share in my online ministry and help to make it possible for the blog to remain free of all third party advertising. The majority of blog posts and podcasts remain free of charge to all readers and listeners and Donor Subscribers help to cover the considerable costs of hosting, design, promotion, software and development. We take it for granted that online content is free, but of course it is not free to produce. If you can help by being a monthly Donor Subscriber please consider it! There are two levels you can choose and you can unsubscribe at any time.
The four articles for Donor Subscribers today are:
Eliot’s Agonies – an article on the women in T.S.Eliot’s life and how he learned from a disastrous marriage and finally found happiness.
Utilitarianism. Good Works or What Works is Good? – this is the chapter I contributed to the book Disorientation-How to Go to College Without Losing Your Mind.
The Simplicity of St Benedict – When considering the “Benedict Option” it is the saint’s balance and simplicity which counters the confusion of our modern and decadent world.
What’s So Bad About Sexual Sin? – The complexities of the spiritual life and sexual sin and how priests should deal with it pastorally.
A head’s up on what is coming up on the blog: I’m recording my Lent Book “The Gargoyle Code” as a Lent podcast. It will be available here on the blog for Donor Subscribers. I am also working on a project I am really excited about. Renegade Priest is podcast fiction. I’m taking the part of Fr Max Fisher–an inner city priest who falls afoul of criminals in the church hierarchy and beyond. This serialized podcast story will be available soon here at Standing on My Head.
