The Shrine of the Holy Whapping
"'Catholic Nerds' at the University of Notre Dame share their thoughts on Catholic identity at ND, cultural reviews, and other musings (or 'moosings' as the case may be) with the rest of the world" reads the description of an intelligently written blog titled The Shrine of the Holy Whapping. These domers err on the conservative side. I don't just mean orthodox (they are of course), but they definitely lean right. Their blog is creative and amusing. It is good to know young people are so concerned about their faith.
They have recently posted the new list of cardinals (in Italian). Archbishop O'Malley of Boston is on the list. They linked to a blog dedicated to my favorite subject of late, the discussion of academic freedom at ND (I have yet to visit this site because I'm trying to cut back).
The Shrine of the Holy Whapping is worth a visit.
