Just a little over two years ago, Benedict XVI, called on us to make use of the Internet to spread the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ.  In a General Audience, our Holy Father said:  "Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God’s infinite love for all people, will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world (General Audience, 5/20/09)."

So even though I began blogging in a limited way back in 2004 (which is like decades in the digital world) which led to my posting homilies on MySpace (remember that?) and then eventually on Facebook, it seems like the next logical step that my parishioners urged me to do was to begin an actual blog site.  So here it is!  I usually post my homilies on Sunday night after I edit them because a homily isn't a homily until it's preached.  Who knows?  Maybe I'll starting blogging about other things like I used to do back on MySpace (sports anyone?).  Whatever this evolves into, I pray you enjoy this new little missionary endeavor as we continue to follow our Holy Father's call to proclaim the Gospel in this digital world.
