Even so, the Bear just published three stories that gently used Gospel accounts of the poor and the costly oil, when Jesus left the poor hungry, and God and mammon, to wonder why the Church has lost its taste for the supernatural. The Bear has recently written on the Liturgy of the Hours, meeting an elderly priest whose ministry is blessing items purchased at a Catholic gift shop, and just today, a piece about St. Alphonsus Liguori. Despite frequently writing about Pope Francis, including his psychological effect on faithful Catholics, the author of this blog is by no means a one-trick Bear. Furthermore, the Bear has yet to lose his sense of humor, as his readers (hopefully) know.
That's not to brag. The Bear is aware he is still a pipsqueak compared to more established blogs. And that's okay, because, big or small, the mission is the same. The point is to dispel any notion that conservative Catholic blogs are on the retreat.
Damian Thompson has probably never heard of St. Corbinian's Bear. He's evidently never heard of a a lot of blogs if he thinks the Catholic blogosphere is deflated.
Yeah, saving the world's a big job. But haven't you heard? The Catholic Bloggers aren't going anywhere.
