Loose Lips in the Loggia (Vernal Equinox Edition)

The twisted dance goes on in the world of Catholic new media, as various subgroups among the faithful turn on one another. Whether it's speaking the Truth in Love, or just whoring for attention, there's no reason we can't just sit back and have a little fun with it.

Meanwhile, here's what's bouncing around the bandwidth of Believers lately:

Earlier this week, the planet's axis did a slight realignment. If you felt it, it was right about the time Mark Shea congratulated Michael Voris for the release of the latter's statement against openly attacking the Holy Father. [Catholic and Enjoying It]

In a related story, there is concern that Mark is becoming more like Mike, and Mike is becoming more like Mark. In the midst of this unexpected love fest, who do you suppose wants a piece of the action? [The Tenth Crusade]

Elsewhere, there are more than lies and falsehoods getting trapped and exposed, and David Gray is searching for the meaning of it all. (Good luck with that, by the way.) [Catholic Stand]

In other news ...

If you're looking for an alternative to macaroni and cheese, you'll never guess what else qualifies as seafood. The Friday night fish fry just got a little more interesting. [Catholic News Agency]

Lent is also a time to reflect upon the lives of the saints, especially the weird ones. [Mental Floss]

Given all of the above, is it time for bishops and bloggers to meet at the table, once they agree on a committee to organize the seating arrangements? Don't hold your breath. [Catholic Herald]

Finally, and on an uplifting note (for a change), we bring you a web-based documentary on the “Cristo Redentor” (Christ the Redeemer) in Rio de Janiero. With arms wide open, and in spite of ourselves, He awaits us. [BBC]

Well, that's our story and we're stickin' to it. Remember to attend Holy Mass this Sunday. Until the next chattel of church chat, stay tuned, and stay in touch.
