“Confessions of a Liturgy Queen” is another of those new blogs that I came across while following the useful information on the WordPress dashboard, identifying sites from which readers had followed links. In this case though, I found it not from my dashboard, here, but at the Open Tabernacle.
Ross Lonergan describes himself in these words:
I am a resident of Vancouver, Canada. In 2006 I returned to the Catholic Church after 40 years of “lapse.” Since that time I have developed a passionate interest in many things Catholic, especially the priesthood, being gay and Catholic, and Vatican II. I am keen to learn more about the history of the Church and about theology, about Catholic writers of fiction and non-fiction and their works, about Judaism.
Ross and I clearly share a lot of interests, among them an exploration of theology and Church history, the nature of priesthood, and the obvious issues of being gay and Catholic. (I also like many of the books on his f”avourite fiction” list, notably “At Swim Two Boys”). He is clearly thoughtful, keen to learn and share, and writes clearly of his findings. Ross began blogging in December 2009. I hope he will continue a long time. Go across and have a look for yourself:. (These are some of his posts that caught my attention):
