I have been a little tardy with posting. There have been a few selections from the Mass readings these past few days, particularly Palm Sunday, but I wasn’t able to get to them due to other commitments and obligations. After this explanatory post I’ll address them over the course of the rest of this day.
Sober Catholic is an avocation, a hobby so-to-speak and not a full-time duty. I have a commitment to it, but unfortunately it may take a back seat to life at times. Needless to say, some postings may not always be timely. I also regard it as a resource that people may refer to time and again, so it may not matter if, for example, I post about Palm Sunday two days late. Hopefully over the course of time tardiness will be the exception (as it so far has.)
Concerning my commitment: I shall reiterate that the purpose of this blog is to assist people in discovering the riches and resources of the Catholic Faith and her spirituality with regard to keeping their alcoholism (or perhaps other addictions) in check. I have my own particular or peculiar vision of this, namely the reversion path I took simultaneously with stopping drinking. I keep in mind where I was in 2002 when I was looking for online resources for Catholic sobriety and fould little except for what’s in the links section of the sidebar. I keep asking myself “What was I looking for? What did I hope to find?” And for the most part Sober Catholic is it. I never found anything like discussion forums or blogs from a purely Catholic Christian perspective. I never found sites that accepted the fullness of Gospel and Apostolic Truth as taught by the Church, and also accepted the legitimate Authority of the Church and all her authentic teachings. Plenty of evangelical and other non-denominational sites and blogs, but nothing Catholic.
Either I am lousy at Google, or others do not promote their sites. If anyone knows of other blogs or websites that address sobriety from a Catholic perspective, you can email me through this blog (email link is in the “View my complete profile” thingy).
Thanks.Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)"The Stations of the Cross for Alcoholics"
