Imagining saints as bloggers

Dylan's report on the third meeting of the Guild of Blessed Titus Brandsma includes a summary of the talk given by Fr Rupert McHardy of the London Oratory. I was sorry to have missed this (parish schedule) but glad to read some of the points that he made.

I do like the idea of imagining St Jerome and St Philip Neri as bloggers, as well as the more obvious candidates such as St Maximilian Kolbe and our patron Blessed Titus Brandsma. As with the blogosphere today, they would all have had their own style. St Jerome would probably have been one of those "vitriolic bloggers" that people proudly profess not to read, while St Philip Neri would perhaps have been tolerated for his kindness (though he could be quite devastating in the jokes that he played on those he thought in need of a bit of humility.)

Dylan's post has a list of blogs, some of which are not yet on the blogroll here. I recommend you go over and have a click on them. I'll do so as soon as I have a chance.
