FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: "If you get why we go to confession, if it makes sense, then you are Catholic. If it does not make sense, you may be more of a congregationalist and confession is merely an invasion of your privacy." Fr. Stan Klasinski
QUOTE II - "Over identification with your struggles leads you to the George Washington Bridge." Fr. Gene Fulton

Barb was kind enough to send this site in called Fidelis. "Fidelis (Latin for faithful) is the universal name for a group of Catholic-based political, legal, research and educational organizations whose collective mission it is to formulate, promote, and defend public policies that uphold religious freedom, human life from conception to natural death, and the traditional institutions of marriage and family."
Attention Writers & Readers!Leoness Books is a newly formed small press specializing in Literary Catholic Writing. Leoness has been created due to the dearth of publishing opportunities for Catholic writers whose work can be described as "Literary, yet artfully overt." Leoness is seeking book-length fiction (both novels and story collections) and narrative non-fiction submissions for their Leoness Book Award, and short stories for their Best Catholic Short Stories, 2010 edition. Leoness Books is also seeking dedicated readers who are tired of the syrupy genre fiction that Christian publishers attempt to pass off as "real life," who are put off by the poorly written Apocalyptic novels that misrepresent Bible teaching, and disheartened by the plethora of literary options for nearly every subset of humanity, except for devout Catholics seeking quality literature inspired by faith. There are several ways to become involved and ensure Leoness Books’ success. Please visit http://www.leonessbooks.com/ for more information.
