Καθολικός διάκονος: Year in review

Below is my selection from each month of this past year that I think best captures what I was experiencing during that month. So, this is not really a best of 2010 list, but a representative sample of this past year here on Καθολικός διάκονος:

December- Faith and the morals: the Church and the world

November- Fleshing our Advent, incarnating it

October- Where the "less trivial elbows the important things"

September- Burning the Qu'ran is not the way a Christian acts

August- A rambling remembrance of Allan Bloom on music

July- A thought from the road

June- "And don't come back until you've redeemed yourselves"

May- Love is not neither a sentiment nor a sediment- what discipleship looks like

April- Heads Goldman wins, tails you lose (and they win)

March- Deacon Dad

February- Parshat Acharei Mot

January- Personal and philosophical ruminations for a Tuesday

I certainly invite both of my readers to chime in if there are any posts from this past year that struck you in any way.
