Christian Carnival XXVI

| | Comments (2)

The Christian Carnival is at From the Anchor Hold this week. It's growing by leaps and bounds. We even outgrew the Carnival of the Vanities this week by a couple entries. Next week it will be at Mr. Standfast, so stay tuned for details. Patriot Paradox now has a schedule up for the next few weeks of hosts. I'm doing the week right after the last one on that list, August 18. I don't think it's a good idea to do it while I'm teaching, so that might be the last one for me until December or January unless I change my mind on that (or unless there's a good week when I'll have Wednesday off that isn't Thanksgiving, which I think does happen with the Mass of the Holy Spirit -- the benefits of teaching at a Catholic school).

My post on evangelicals and politics is part of it, along with a number of other posts on similar matters, including a roundup of some of the best at Digitus, Finger & Co. Given that Karen Marie was hosting, it shouldn't surprise long-time Carnival readers that a number of others from the Catholic blogging community showed up, including The Curt Jester, who is themed his blog on a Jesuit monk whose life he greatly respects, combining prayer with punditry, in this case giving some excellent reflections along the same lines as posts in Neil's aforementioned roundup. The Society of Jesuits pays my salary, so I have to be nice to them people who base their blogs' themes on them, but it's a good post independent of my own prejudices.


Thanks for the kind comments, but I am not a Jesuit priest but a lay person and convert from atheism. The picture on my site is of a Jesuit who was martyred in Mexico. He was known for his sense of humor, practical jokes, and was called God's Jester. Thus he seemed appropriate for my site.

Facing the firing squad he said, "May God have mercy on you. May God bless you. Lord, You know that I am innocent. With all my heart I forgive my enemies." and then "Viva Cristo Rey!" Long live Christ the King.

Sorry about the confusion. I've edited it to reflect that.
