This is for The Crescat.
… For something as seemingly infinite as the internet, things are starting to feel a bit crowded around here. Stifling to the point of suffocation.
She’s taking an indefinite leave from blogging. I was going to send this in private email, but it wouldn’t send (stormy weather here)…and so I decided that God is telling me to just post it here.
Just read your post. I feel your pain. Literally. I feel the same way. I even have a similar experience that you mentioned in the first part of your post, with another Catholic blogger who used to be my best friend and who now despises me. I’ll spare you my story but just know, it’s all very similar to yours and I have left blogging several times. Do you know what’s worse than leaving? What’s worse than leaving is realizing you don’t really have better options and coming back to it and explaining that you were wrong to leave. That’s embarrassing…but following God’s will, as it turns out, is a very bumpy road. At least, it has been for me. So, I want you to know that if you stay gone, I admire you, and if you come back, I will welcome you (and admire you, too.)
You’re among only a handful of my fellow Catholic bloggers who have ever treated me like I am an actual human being who has value beyond what can be measured in pixels, megabytes, grammar skills or rules about “manners.” For that, I thank you.
May the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ Be Ever in Our Hearts.
Honest people are the loneliest people…especially when it comes to politics and religion.
