For a long time, I maintained a blog titled Quiet, Dignity, and Grace.  It was the first experiment I had with writing and thinking about current issues through a Catholic lens.  Taking Al Kresta quite literally, I quite often took a newspaper (or news website) in one hand, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church in the other to see what shook out in the wash.

Over the years, I accumulated something like 500 posts.  I didn’t even have kids when it began, so I had a lot more time on my hands back then.  In any event, I lost most of that when my website expired a while back.  But, I have email copies of all of my old posts.  Or, at least most of them.  So one of my side projects (among many others!) will be to restore those old posts one at a time.  You’ll get a glimpse at a younger and less mature writer with maybe a bit too much confidence that he knew all the right answers.  But there’s also at least a few good gems in there.  So look for them in the future!
