No, this blog is not abandoned. Early last week I suffered a medical emergency that necessitated major surgery and a week in hospital. I'm recuperating now and hope to be back to regular blogging once I'm back up to speed.
I see that in the meantime quite a bit has unfolded, mainly the none-too-surprising results of the "youth sin-nod". Many have reported on that already and I suggest you plug into them. From Lepanto we do see that the CCHD continues to funnel Catholic dollars into organizations that foster mortal sins. Please boycott those collections in a few weeks.
Meanwhile I appreciate prayers for a speedy recovery.
