I had long toyed with the idea of blogging. This itch had been held firmly in check by the conviction that a blogger should be one of two things: either a very interesting person or at least someone with something very interesting to say. Ideally, one is both. Fearing myself neither of these things, I contented myself with wearing out my local archbishop, pastor, friends and family with my screeds over developments in the Church, especially during these past few years following the issuance of Amoris Laetitia. Yet, an article published in Vatican Insider on the La Stampa website prompted me – against my better judgment that I lacked both of the aforementioned qualities – to enter the blogosphere to comment on the events of our time with my initial blog article (see Pope Francis’ Predecessors come to the Defense of his Magisterium? Well–Yes and No, Mr. Walford) .
