In Union With Rome- my new quasi-blog

Glory to Jesus Christ! Another day, another blog- In Union with Rome! This new, 'under-construction' blog will become a definitive and current listing of all those great active blogs and websites that are educating and evangelizing the world about the Catholic Church and more specifically the Eastern rites of the Catholic Church.
 I would appreciate any links that you would care to share and also notifications if a link goes 'dead' before I catch on. 

At this point, I will not be writing original content for this blog (find me at Fear Not Little Flock for original posts), but I would like to feature blogs or websites that I especially appreciate. In Union With Rome is just a clearinghouse for great Eastern Catholic blogs and websites. Bloggers- your blog needs to be current (a post a month maybe?) and occasionally talk religion to remain on the list.
'Ecumenical' links will be listed for those friends who are Orthodox or Anglican and/or who are 'Catholic-friendly.' If you have an ecumenical blog and want to be on the list, please let me know. I don't want to assume that you would want a wee bit of traffic from this blogroll.
 
If you would like your blog or website included, please comment at In Union With Rome or email me at remnantofremnant.gmail.com.
 
Thanks for bookmarking or following In Union With Rome!

  5. after reading your comments on other blogs, there is something not quite right with you...my guess is that your husband is a liberal.

    1. if having 'something not quite right with me' means that I am a sinner working out my salvation in fear and trembling, then yes, you are correct.

      I write my experiences, not my husband's. I don't know why you would equate my imperfections with my husband being a 'liberal.' He celebrates our Divine Liturgy ad orientam and with exact rubrics. His preaching has never been against Biblical principles, sacred tradition and the Holy Father. But he is kind to people who are unchurched. Perhaps this is what you suspect as 'liberal'

    2. Anne of Green Gables comes to mind- "yet if you only knew how many things I want to say and don't, you'd give me some credit for it."

    3. Yes- I realize that 'beth' is one person out of the 200 or so that read this blog today- but I have gotten this complaint before. 'Where am I coming from?' and 'why is this blog all over the map?' First of all- this blog is trying (perhaps very badly) to write my church-spirituality-family-marriage-homeschooling experiences with a bit of anonymity to preserve our privacy and my husband;s dignity as a priest. But just because we are who we are does not mean that we are saints. We are normal people.

      We do our best to follow the official teaching of the Catholic Church. Sometimes this looks 'conservative'- absolutely pro-life (anti-abortion, anti-fetal stem cell research, anti- artificial birth control), praying in the church, fasting, etc. Sometimes this looks 'liberal.' anti-death penalty, subsidiary economics (which is really in between), to 'eat simply so that others can simply eat,' etc.

      But Beth- I would be interested in knowing what I wrote that disturbed you so much as to make you think that my husband is a bad priest. While I might not fit into anyone's 'box,' I would never want to make that impression. That is completely contrary to my life, this blog and to any of my interactions on the internet. I would appreciate you being specific so that I can learn from my mistakes- I really can't recall any interactions that would seem 'liberal' or non-Catholic.

  6. That was a very interesting comment. I am particularly intrigued by the idea that it's your comments on OTHERS' blogs that make her think "Something is not quite right." Makes me mentally go over all the comments you have left on mine -- how did I overlook how not quite right you are?? It has eluded me so!! :)

    Anyway, if you thought it would fit, could you include Like Mother, Like Daughter on your list? Thanks!

  7. Well I for one am always happy to see a comment from you on my blog. If you're "off", then you're my kind of off. Oh and I like your current background print. Very pretty.
