Catholic Blogger Syndrome

How do you know it is time for a vacation from the task of being a Catholic blogger?

Yesterday, I received an email entitled "Two Cardinals Receive Gold Glove Awards" and I assumed immediately that when I opened the email, it would contain an article about the always polite but always obvious mutual dislike between incoming Cardinals Raymond Burke and Donald Wuerl.

Instead, the article was about Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals' baseball team earning awards for fielding.

This week, we celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our podcast, NCR in Conversation. Catch the latest episode here.
