Let's hear it for laity on the Internet! Hurrah for Catholic bloggers!

Some of the bishops may consider lay bloggers on the Internet pesky and judgmental but Mike Voris points out how we and solid, orthodox websites are renewing the face of the Church. The insanity of the 60s and 70s is on the wane while the truths of the faith are ascending thanks to truth tellers with keyboards.

This is something to celebrate. So remember Hillaire Belloc's poem that "wherever the Catholic sun doth shine, there is music, and laughter, and good red wine." At the end of an Ignatian retreat there's always a toast to St. Ignatius. Let's spread the tradition and toast all those who walk in the footsteps of the man who founded what used to be the pope's shock troops. The new legions are among the laity. So choose your vintage and lift your glass in celebration of orthodox Catholics writing on the internet. Make mine a merlot.
