"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Shea and Fisher taking it on the road ...

BREAKING:


I bet they go to the Remnant now.

What?

Just kidding.

NCR maybe?

So.  They are writers.  Writers usually don't stay in one place forever - especially if they 'rock the boat'.  As Martha Stewart would say, "It's a good thing!"

Congratulations and best wishes to both Simcha Fisher and Mark Shea ... Amy Welborn is living proof there is life outside the EWTN universe.  (LarryD too - look how his career took off after leaving Patheos.)  Not to worry ...

Who can turn the world on with their smile? 
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? 
Well it's you guys, and you should know it 
With each glance and every little movement you show it 
Love is all around, no need to waste it 
You can have your own sites, why don't you take it 
You're gonna make it after all 
You're gonna make it on your own!

What?

I only read Fisher once or twice, maybe even, thrice, but I'm not all that interested in mommy-blogs or women's issues (not that there is anything wrong with that) - which is one reason why I don't often read Aleteia Keys, except to harass Fernandez occasionally.  That said, Fisher will do fine - it's a woman's world these days.

Mark Shea will do well also - I think he's a good writer, I like his calling a spade a spade and his honesty.  Someone has to call those people out when they fasten their phylacteries a bit too tight and swing their tassels around the blogosphere threatening excommunication and hell fire.

    1. I think I know how you missed them, but that would be giving away my age.

    2. The song made me remember an interview I read a few months ago regarding the "marriage" according to Ms. Tenille. She said it was "in name only and she was miserable the whole time."

      And here I thought they had a marriage made in heaven ... ah well.

    3. Here's some of the interview though I can't find the one I read where she is quoted in my last post herein.

    1. She definitely will - I think they both will now have more freedom to write the way they want. In the arts, you can't really ever lose.

    1. No worries about them. Like I said - they are both good writers and writing is a profession and the more experience under their belt, the better.
