Fr. Z's Blog - What Does The Prayer Really Say?

Holy Smoke
Damian Thompson, a writer for the London Telegraph, mans this remarkably good blog, which focuses primarily on issues affecting the Catholic Church in England. Since those include the rise of Islam, the restoration of the Latin Mass, and possibilities for the reunification of traditional Anglicans with Rome, readers outside of England will also find "Holy Smoke" well worth reading.

Standing on My Head
Standing on My Head is the blog and podcast of Fr. Dwight Longenecker, a married Catholic priest and father of four and author of ten books on Christian apologetics. Mennonite by birth, Father Longenecker graduated from Bob Jones University and was ordained as an Anglican priest before converting to Catholicism.

Tea at Trianon
This blog by Elena Maria Vidal, author of the novels Trianon and Madame Royale, features "reflections on politics, history, art, music, books, morals, manners, and matters of faith," all from a solidly Catholic perspective.

Catholic and Enjoying It!
Though his description reads, "So That No Thought of Mine, No Matter How Stupid, Should Ever Go Unpublished Again!" Mark Shea is always thoughtful as he examines the passing world through the lens of a Catholic author and apologist.
