Normally we post links to interesting articles on the Reader. Every once in a while I find an article that I think you absolutely must read and put it here on the main page.

Michael Brendan Douherty’s piece at “The Week” is one such piece. It puts so many of the currents in today’s Catholic debates into perspective and accurately perceives their weaknesses. I commented on Facebook simply the “I wish, I wish, I wish I wrote this.”

Give it a read and let me know what you think.
