My New Favorite News Agency

Though many bloggers hope to parlay their writing into a paid position, I never considered myself one of them. But thanks to the fortuitous recommendation of a certain Kevin Knight, I am now a part-time staff writer at the Catholic News Agency.

Here's the lead to one of my reports, this one discussing Archbishop Burke's analysis of the worthy reception of Communion:
In an essay certain to have an impact on American politics, Archbishop Raymond Burke of the Archdiocese of St. Louis has criticized lax attitudes concerning the reception of the Holy Eucharist. His words continue a long-standing debate about whether Catholic politicians who support abortion rights should receive communion.

The archbishop's full paper is here.

It feels so very good to be working again after nearly four years of disability. Though my health is still not optimal, and probably never will be again, I think I can now aspire to forge a career in something or other. Journalism seems as likely a field as any other, and I am most thankful for this opportunity.

Sorry to be late to this, but I second the above and hope it works out wonderfully for you.

They should give you a byline, btw.

Heh, not even my boss has a byline or a credit anywhere on the site. Perhaps that means I can appeal to his own desire for recognition.

Thank you all for your kind words.
