local paper on Catholic blogging

A local paper recently featured Catholic bloggers and the recent events at the Vatican last month as something comparable to what the November elections last year did to political blogs. Catholic blogging it said is growing.

There is a lot of interest out there on Catholicism, precipitated perhaps by the death of John Paul and the election of Benedict. In a way Catholic bloggers help to fill the demand for information out there about matters Catholic.

Now, with regards the election of Benedict, the article quotes priest-blogger Jeff Keyes--author of the blog the New Gasparian--as saying that "He's [Benedict's] Pope for less than 24 hours, and the rest of the world already has him in a box...It's not that he's conservative. He's Catholic for crying out loud. He is a brilliant man and when is dealing with people, he is incredibly compassionate."
