Sober Catholic now has a Page on LinkedIn!

I just discovered today that LinkedIn offers Pages, just like Facebook, MeWe and SP3RN. I don’t know how long this feature has existed since I don’t use LinkedIn much (this will now change!) but you can find it here: https://www.linkedin.com/company/sober-catholic-blog/ Please follow it! Thank you! Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? …

Shhh…. This is a cheat post

I posted something regarding the annual Sober Catholic novena to St.Maximilian Kolbe and noticed in my blog editor that I didn’t post at all in July 2021. That marks the first time that has happened since I began this project in January 2007. Oftentimes I notice near the end of the month that I hadn’t …

The Probably Not Gonna Be Happening Sober Catholic Podcast

If you are a subscriber to either the Sober Catholic Facebook Page, the Sober Catholic SP3RN Page, or even the Sober Catholic Telegram Channel, then you know that I was exploring the possibility of starting a Sober Catholic Podcast. This is something I’ve thought and prayed about ever since I began this blog in 2007. “All the cool Catholics” have …

Distractions and anxiety

I noticed the other day that I haven’t blogged in over a month. This isn’t an apology nor an explanation, but just commentary about ‘distractions and anxiety.’ Lots of things have been going on in both the Church and the secular world. The Church passed through Advent, Christmas and on through Epiphany and the Baptism …

Sober Catholic is on Telegram

I recently joined Telegram, a popular privacy- and security- conscious Instant Messaging platform. I joined it because ChurchPop had joined which I thought was interesting. It appears that users can create Public Channels through which they can broadcast messages to followers. I thought that this might be a useful way to publish blogposts, in addition to …

On Bob Waldrop and introducing the Novena of Novenas

Today begins a special period of prayer, the “Novena of Novenas.” This was started several years ago by Bob Waldrop, the late founder of the St. Oscar Romero Catholic Worker House in Oklahoma City. Bob died on August 30, 2019. I never met Bob in person although we had been friends on Facebook for around …

If you can read this, then I am still blogging!

The domain name registration for our blogs (this one, another I barely use, and my wife’s site) became due a week ago and without hesitation we paid for another year. I really should blog more. I know I’ve said that in the past about 89,621 times, and have apologized 64,229 times for not doing so, …

Sober Catholic YouTube Channel (UPDATE)

Just a quick post to let you know that I’ve just spent the last hour or so managing this blog’s YouTube Channel. All that is on there are subscriptions and playlists; I have no original videos uploaded. The main thing I did was to delete all playlists and subscriptions relating to the Camino de Santiago …

WordPress app test post

This is a test. This is a test of a new (to me) posting system. For the next few lines this post will be written by yours truly using the WordPress smartphone app. It’s a handy little thing that I can use to post to this blog and my other one on In Exile. I’ve …

Blogging!

OK, this isn’t an apology for not having blogged in six weeks or so. I have been busy with things, namely the usual stuff like home life and day job… but also I’ve been getting lost in my reading. In no order of importance I’ve been engrossed in a second reading of “Story of a …
