Feel free to skip this post, I’m writing mainly to have as a perma-link in the sidebar.
Thank you for emailing me! Since I unfortunately cannot respond to all the email I receive, I thought I’d put together this post with some answers to frequently asked questions:
“Will you publicize an event/blog post by linking to it?”
I am happy to check out any information you’d like to send me, but please understand that I receive many requests of this nature and am not able to honor them all.
“Will you add my blog to your blogroll?”
I always love it when readers send me links to introduce me to their own blogs! It’s great to discover new sites and hear other people’s perspectives. Unfortunately I can’t honor every request to add new sites to my blogroll (and, honestly, I’m terrible about updating my blogroll anyway since it takes a bit of work and I follow the sites I read on a feed reader).
“I’d like to hear more about your ‘Reckless Experiment with Prayer‘…”
Here is a post where I answered some common questions about my experiment praying the Liturgy of the Hours.
“Will you explain why the Catholic Church believes X?”
I get many questions related to Catholic teaching, so here are links with some basic information about some of the most common subjects I get asked about:
- The Catholic stance on contraception
- Papal infallibility
- The Church’s belief that non-Catholics and non-Christians can receive salvation
- Sacred Tradition
You can also read the Catholic Catechism online here (there is a topical index here). I also encourage you to feel free to ask any questions on these or other topics at the friendly Catholic Spitfire Grill email list.
“I have a loved-one who is an atheist. What can I do?”
Here are some posts you may find helpful:
- When your spouse is an atheist
- “My son is an atheist — what should I do?”
- How to talk to an atheist about Christianity
- Love and conversion
“I am an agnostic/atheist. I’ve tried searching but don’t seem to be any closer to finding God. Any thoughts?”
I encourage you to check out the post Finding God in 5 Steps — and be sure to leave a comment (even anonymously) so I’ll know to pray for you!
Again, I post this not to discourage anyone from emailing me, just to offer some resources in the event that I’m not able to reply.
