I don't post links often, but these two today are so good.
The first is on the exciting filibuster last night! Senator Paul spoke from real conviction, and ended up with a bunch of bipartisan support and applause. We watched this history-making episode for a while--and that 's a lot for this mom who really never watches TV much less C-Span. It was a reality-classroom. CatholicVote's takes are excellent!
The second is a gem I found in Patheos... abut the prayer life of Blessed John XXIII.
