Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas

Happy Feast of St. Thomas, patron of theologians and of the Paulist Fathers!

More on last week's ecumenical events and yesterday's opening of Isaac Hecker's cause in a little bit...

Which Church Father Are You?

You are St. Justin Martyr!

You have a positive and hopeful attitude toward the world. You think that nature, history, and even the pagan philosophers were often guided by God in preparation for the Advent of the Christ. You find “seeds of the Word” in unexpected places. You’re patient and willing to explain the faith to unbelievers.

So here's what we'll try for a bit...

A few weeks ago I set up a tumblelog on tumblr.com, following the example of my older brother, who's always been the pathmaker for my technological journeys (in other words, he early adopts, and my dad and I tend to follow him...).

So I've re-vamped the format of BaptizedPagan with an emphasis on simplicity, and in the upper right hand corner, you'll notice a newsfeed entitled "Meanwhile, in other news..." That's where I'll be posting random news stories, short statements of my current state of being, etc., while I'll continue to use this mainspace for more substantial posts, images, commentary, etc. We'll see how this all goes.

I almost closed BaptizedPagan on Dec. 31st, and still might do so, but I'm giving it one more shot.
I realized over the break that while I don't have the time in my life these days to sit down and write a well-crafted, well-thought-out multi-paragraph post on a regular basis, I was feeling guilty for not doing so...and that the idea of having to put something witty down on here was keeping me from even starting to write.

So I'm going to be making BP a lot more like a Tumblelog...more random linking, less my direct voice. I'll still comment at greater length once in a while, but I'm more likely to point you toward something else that I've been reading, hearing, or doing, than to provide you with lots of original content. There's this whole teaching/researching/jobhunting thing that has taken up just an eensy-beensy bit of my time...
