It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

- Pope Benedict XVI, April 16, 2008

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: How many people do you know say they believe in God (even in Jesus Christ), but they feel no need to attend a church. They are perfectly content to "practice their own way in the privacy of their own home." According to the pope anyway, this philiosophy completely undermines the whole message of the Christian faith.
