There are two columnists in our Belleville Diocesan Newspaper, The Messenger, that I highly recommend.
The first is REV. RON ROLHEISER, OMI
This past edition there was an insightful column on the relationship of orthodoxy and heresy, “The Other Side of Orthodoxy” that got me thinking I’d recommend his columns to my readers. He has written some excellent columns about dealing with suicide, by the way.
The other columnist I recommend is REV. ROBERT BARRON.
He is a professor at University of St. Mary of the Lake and Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois. Our presbyterate (the priests of a diocese) were privileged to hear him speak at our last convocation last fall. He’s an excellent preacher and teacher. Our Bishop, the Most Rev. Edward K. Braxton thinks highly of him. The web-site, called Word on Fire, is more than his syndicated columns. It is one of his ministries, using the internet as part of the “new evangelization.” It’s well worth your time, read and listen (there are pod-casts of his homilies for instance).
