View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

I'm talking about ending this blog.

Sorry if I have once again caused confusion.

Good bye.

Thank you for all your insights on this blog. I don't know your reasons, but I do know you are an intelligent, thoughtful, and holy man and have put this to prayer. May God bless you and I hope to one day meet you. Thank you!

It'd be sad to see you go, Lee. I've enjoyed following your blog, but totally understandable if you don't wish to do it anymore. There's probably a bunch of reasons, but do you care to share some of the bigger ones?

Lee, I'm very sad that you have decided to end your blog. Hopefully, it's a temporary leave of absence. I pray that it is...

Rats! I haven't much looked in on anyone for a few weeks, and I come in to find a g'bye?? Aw.. farewell, if not-blogging's better for you. But maybe you could do a compilation post only now and then --weekly? monthly? Chased with a haiku? Even a bad one (though yours are all good)?

God bless you. I'm keeping your Franciscan self in my prayers.

Love the Clash, hate the decision.

Good Luck on your Lay Franciscan formation.

Lee - I'm sorry that you're leaving blogdom. I have always enjoyed reading your take on things, even if I didn't agree, but mostly I did agree. I pray that you do well in the SFO. I hope you get to meet my friend who has also entered.

Remember you are always welcome to come to the Tridentine Mass. It would be so good to see you.

Remember, the Lord said if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. If blogging causes you to get angry and say angry things, then maybe it's best for you to stop and spend more time with God.

Good luck.

Oh, cyberchurch really doesn't cut it anyhow, does it? What have we seen online for the most part, but regal authors who also happen to be professed secular Carmelites, priests with Paypal buttons for fattening their garden archways and reading lists and blogvotes, apologists who find some damned fun way to make money out in the foyer near the pigeon-sellers, an alleged nun who takes Don Rickles lessons, and of course the many whited pitchers of Mel Gibson koolaid. For the most part, St. John Vianney would beg of us directions to the nearest Catholic church.

I'm not alone in the dismay of having seen very little of Christ's prayers being answered online, and certainly it is atheism/antichrist and divisions we need to confront and/or inform and heal with His love and His peace. If I can't be part of that solution here, I will at least not be part of the problem-- and that's why I left. How I thank God that our Papa is always a jump ahead of his children who'd monopolize God into one covered wagon.
