    Hi De Maria, I’m happy to view your blog for the first time. I never knew that I only needed to click on your screen name on the Shameless Popery site to find it! I remember you mentioning it in a recent comment of yours about a week, or so, ago, and thought about trying to find it. Anyway, I’ll take a look at some of your achieved posts, and drop by to comment once in a while. Nice to find you.

        It looks like a great site! I like your style with St. Thomas Aquinas. That my parish is run by Dominicans I can really appreciate your explanations of the Summa, to make it more digestible. I’ll continue to dig through your past posts, but what I see looks like there’s a lot of great information. I also like your explanation of the Brothers of Jesus. I’ve read and heard it explained on Catholic Radio, and on the web, but you do an exceptionally good job with it. So, you definitely have a talent for explaining the deep truths of the Catholic Faith. Keep up the good work!
