Here We Go Again

  1. I’ve come full circle.

    And, I’ve changed the name of my blog again. Way back in the day, in 2002, I started a weblog called “Confessions of a Catholic Seminarian“. It was originally here.

    It was mildly popular until one day, with the pressures of formation, I decided I absolutely without a doubt could not have an anonymous blog.

    It was downhill from there.

    I realized everything I wrote would no doubt be reviewed by the formation committee. And they without a doubt had never heard of a blog back in 2002, and I felt doomed. Doomed I tell you. It was a horrible, dark feeling, and I did not like it.

    Then I accidentally erased everyone’s comments.

    It just wasn’t pretty.

  2. Then in 2006, after recovering a bit from Katrina (which I have strangely never blogged about. Hmmm….) I started a blog here and called it “Confessions of a Catholic Priest”. It died a hideous death in the trenches of spiritual warfare. It’s part of a dark and horrible chapter of my life that I feel compelled to write about, and to share with someone. Anyone.

  3. I’m very rude to you my readers, and I apologize. Why bother keeping a blog if there’s no content for readers and visitors?

  4. Well, there are good reasons I tell you. And they would include

    • to practice writing
    • to help spread the Gospel
    • I’m not sure what other reasons are at the moment, but they’re there
    • .

  5. Blogging is obviously not my forte. That’s pretty obvious, and I’m sure you don’t need me to explain that to you.

  6. Thank you for being here, I promise I’ll try harder to generate content.

    In fact, this is an exercise in content generation. Isn’t it fascinating?

  7. It’s not? Oh.

  8. I’m considering writing my autobiography and publishing it here in installments. I’ve kept threatening to fill out my ‘About’ section and have never gotten around to it. That or at least the story of my Priesthood.

    It’s been an incredible journey so far. An unbelievable one.

    In fact, at times it’s hard for me to believe.

  9. I can’t stand when people use the word ‘Journey’ to describe things like the trajectory of their Priesthood. But it’s different when I use it. (MmHmmm.) I’m not into process theology either, but I can use the word ‘process’ with the best of them. It’s a process of understanding I’m in, within the journey that I’m on.

  10. For whatever reason, I am not listed in the latest copy of “The Catholic Directory“.

    Heads are going to roll!

Well. That’s that.
