I have made a few additions to my blogroll in recent weeks:
- Ibo et Non Redibo: This is a new blog by a group of young Canadian Jesuits in formation. Among them is our good friend Adam Hincks, who has been a faithful reader of All Manner of Thing since its first day, and to whom we are happy to repay a debt of thanks. Their blog has been running since the beginning of Lent, and is well worth your time. If you click through, you can find out where the blog’s name comes from too…
- Bad Catholic: It seems I am a little late to the party, for I only recently discovered Marc Barnes’ delightfully feisty blog. Marc is evidently something of a controversialist, but he writes with good-natured wit and admirable enthusiasm — and anyone who quotes Chesterton in his blog banner is a friend of ours. This may not be the best time to recommend the blog, as it is currently on hiatus while Marc works on something “a million times larger in scope than BadCatholic, incredibly more involved, and 20 times more offensive”. I don’t know what that might be, but presumably Bad Catholic will return, and there is a sizable back catalogue in the meantime.
I’ll also mention that James Kalb, whose writing at Turnabout is always worth attention, has in recent months began contributing a column to Catholic World Report. Kalb has an analytical mind, and his thoughts on modernity and culture are frequently illuminating.
