Because Blogging For Christ Is Like Being St. Philip
Above is a snapshot of the last 500 visitors to this space. If a picture is worth 1000 words, then this one is worth 1500. As such, I'll be brief. After baptizing the Ethopian eunuch, the Holy Spirit whisked Philip away to evangelize somewhere else. That is what it is like to be a Catholic working in the apostolate of St. Blogs.
the Spirit of the Lord took Philip away suddenly and the eunuch saw no more of him, but went on his way rejoicing.—Acts 8:39
I could kid myself that no one reads the stuff that is shared here, or on the other hand, that I "know" many of the readers who stop by. But the humbling truth is, I don't know you. I didn't e-mail you to please stop in. Something, or more accurately, someone, prompted you to stop in here today. You may have had no intention to do so, and yet you wound up here.
From the looks of it, you come from all over, from "every clime and place." You are all welcome, all brothers and sisters of mine. And you are all God's children. And you are not alone...
Thanks for stopping by. I pray your visit was a profitable one. Come back again soon.
