Either by way of coincidence (or Providence), this blog was born on June 29, 2013, the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul. Of course, it is Peter’s (and his successors’) Barque, whereas I am merely a humble (and grateful) passenger who God has called to a particular job: to dispense orthodox Catholic joy. The Catholic blogosphere, despite being a wonderful community, is not (at times) without peril. I’ve tried to keep the content of this blog edifying and useful, but I admittedly have fallen short at times and sniped more than I should too. Perhaps you will please say a prayer for me and this blog on this birthday.
