Ever wanted to follow the Way of Saint James, i.e. the Camino? Follow these three priests who are doing that right now. Here is the main post with frequent Camino updates and reflections, and some beautiful photography as well.
Delighted to see Kathryn Jean Lopez of National Review interview Father Lawrence Lew, O.P., Dominican and photographer extraordinaire. He has been on my blogroll from day one, for good reason. Do go read the interview to read about this interesting person and wonderful Dominican, as he talks about social media, photography, and more.
She also has links to his Flickr feed, where you will find things like:

Here at the end of the liturgical year, the Holy Father has today released his encyclical, Evangelii Gaudium .
I have just glanced at it and already see wonderful things in it. As with most any encyclical, too…
all I have to say is: Everyone is going to be uncomfortable by something or another in #EvangeliiGaudium if we are contemplative about it!

Here is a New Advent article on Laetare Sunday.
What color is rosacea anyway? Rose? Pink? Ashes-of-roses? Salmon? Your call – here are some examples.
Flowers, rosacea vestements, etc. today, then back to the more somber violet. Three more weeks until Easter!
