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

The South (Dixie) Produces The Best Catholics - Too Bad There Aren't Many


THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The image above represents the Catholic population in the United States. You may click on it for a larger view. Areas shaded red represent regions of the country where the Catholic population is 25% or greater. Areas shaded blue represent regions of the country where the Catholic population is 5% or less. Interestingly enough, some of the most conservative and orthodox Catholics come from the blue shaded area. Living as a Catholic minority in a Protestant based culture is probably the refining fire that solidified their Catholic identity. Some of the most traditional Catholic communities can be found in the Southland (Dixie). Likewise, some of the most conservative and orthodox Catholics come from the Bible Belt. EWTN is broadcasted from Alabama. I think it's high time we support and assist our faithful Catholic brethren in the blue shaded areas.
