Promising “Headlines and Homilies” as only he can deliver
But the day cannot be allowed to end without attention being paid to a new and noteworthy addition to the pages of Aleteia’s US edition, as Deacon Greg Kandra, late of The Deacons Bench blog, brings his singular brand of news aggregation to our publication with “Deacon Greg Kandra: Headlines and Homilies”.
The page is still in need of curtains and such to make it homey, but (typically) Deacon Greg hasn’t allowed that to prevent him from hitting the ground running in a way Mets fans could only have wished for, giving readers the breaking news, the liturgically interesting stuff, the human and uplifting stories, the faith-affirming excerpts, gentle gripes and—perhaps most helpfully—the expertly-honed homilies that are his grace notes.
Well, that’s all he’s posted since yesterday, anyway. Actually, that’s not all of it. As the saying goes, “But wait, there’s more!
Aleteia is very happy to welcome Deacon Greg Kandra to our crew; we only hope we can keep up with him!
