I have not figured what is going on but seven long time blogging friends who happen to be great Catholic writers all clicked on my blog today.That fact reminded me that even though I created an award for Catholic writers, I only gave it out to 3 people!

Though my own personal corner of the world is fine at the moment, it sure does seem as though the news has been exceptionally full of sadness and strife over the past little while.
