A New Blog...

Hello readers and welcome to my new blog! In case you're wondering about the title, it does not refer to me! It refers to the great 20th century author J.R.R Tolkien, to whom this small personal endeavour is dedicated. Perhaps not many of you know that he was a Catholic, indeed a very devout Catholic, and that his great mythopoeic work is profoundly religious. I have often found, in reading Tolkien, that my mind and heart are elevated to loftier regions, far removed from the general ''sameness'' of everyday life, and I get this from no other modern author - I do, however, get a similar feeling from devout participation in the Sacred Liturgy of the Church; albeit in a different way.

Needless to say, this is a ''Catholic Blog,'' with a view to focusing on issues surrounding the Church in general, particularly the Sacred Liturgy, a topic of which I am especially fond, but also other things of my own personal interest. I hope you all enjoy reading them!
