Here at Clarifying Catholicism, we enjoy promoting and featuring great work from all corners of the internet. Today, we would like to feature ten Catholic growing blogs that we thought deserved a shoutout! But first, we would like extend our thanks and appreciation to two larger websites you may have heard about…

Thank you Big Pulpit and National Catholic Register!!!

pulpit

NCR

These two amazing resources have provided our site, and many others, with exposure to the mainstream Catholic media. In fact, many of the featured sites below were pulled from their recommended readings. Every day, Big Pulpit  features dozens of Catholic blogs, and National Catholic Register’s “Best in Catholic Blogging” series showcases the cream of the crop of these selections. We would like to specially thank Mr. Tito Edwards, who manages Big Pulpit, as well as several other websites such as Catholic StandIgnitum Today, and The American Catholic. Without further ado, here are ten Catholic blogs we recommend our readers check out!

 

Of Intellect and Interest

intel

URL: https://johntuttleswriting.wordpress.com/

Specialty: Catholic-based reviews on news, movies, books, etc. 

Description: This blog comes from one of our own: John Tuttle. In addition to writing for Clarifying Catholicism, John writes for the American Watchmen. His style is humorous, intense, and has a matter-of-fact-ness that we appreciate. If you have enjoyed his articles here at Clarifying, check out his personal blog for more of his insight. 

Article of Interest: The Woes of Weinstein

 

Ignitum Today

Ignitum Today (@IgnitumToday) | Twitter

URL: https://www.ignitumtoday.com/

Specialty: Lifestyle and News

Description: This predominantly young adult-catered website provides resources to help Catholics pursue healthy faith lives in a culture that often discourages us to be faithful. So, while our website focuses on clarifying doctrine, Ignitum’s content focuses on encouraging healthy Catholic lifestyles and sharing faith experiences. Over 200 young writers have been featured. 

Article of Interest: Forgiveness, Chastity, and Faithfulness

 

Catholic Sistas

URL: http://www.catholicsistas.com 

Specialty: This blog gives quality insights into how Catholic women can deepen their faith lives 

Description: Just like our site and Ignatum Today, Catholic Sistas features several contributors to provide multiple voices, viewpoints, styles, and interests. Their site has a very soothing homepage, and its writers enjoy sharing their personal experiences with readers. If you can relate to vulnerability, then this blog might help you grow in your winding journey to sanctity. 

Article off Interest: Here I am, Lord…Broken 

 

Title: Those Catholic Men

URL: http://thosecatholicmen.com 

Specialty: Just as Catholic Sistas is geared towards women, this site is tailored to men who seek to grow in authentic masculinity 

Description: Catholic men are charged with the difficult task of balancing “tough” masculinity and empathetic “sensitivity” to care and protect others. Popular opinion says that it is taboo for men to talk about their feelings, which makes this the perfect resource for any aspiring Catholic gentlemen. Many of these writers have experienced the world’s scrutiny and are pursuing true and beautiful masculinity. This site shares practical tips to be a man for both others and God. Its aesthetic also reflects its mission. 

Article of Interest: Be Master or Get Mastered

 

The Underground Thomist

thomis

URL: http://undergroundthomist.org 

Specialty: This blog concentrates on the political and philosophical aspects of our faith. 

Description: Dr. Budziszewski is a professor at the University of Texas in Austin, teaching government and philosophy. He offers articles, talks, books, reviews, etc. for fellow scholars, students, and those who are philosophically or politically inclined. I must say that he certainly lives out the saying “once a teacher always a teacher.”  

Article of Interest: Bad Reasoning about Hard Choices

 

One Mad Mom

one mad

URL: https://omm.foeduscatholic.com/ 

Specialty: This woman has lovely opinionated articles on all things controversial!

Description: One Mad Mom is run by a woman who prefers to remain anonymous for her family’s sake, but that does not stop her from imbuing her personality into each of her articles. I adore the irony, sarcasm, and pure verbal brutality when she talks about how confused our world can be. We hope you will enjoy them as well. 

Article of Interest: Translogicals 

 

The Scott Smith Blog

roma

URL: https://www.thescottsmithblog.com 

Specialty: Apologetics 

Description: You will be ready to defend your stances as a Catholic once you’ve read this blog. Scott Smith talks about current controversial issues, and because his profession is as an attorney, he gives very compelling arguments and defenses for the Faith. This blog has been running since 2008, and it received the honor of receiving the 2018 Fisher Net Award for Best Catholic Blogs. That alone should be reason enough for you to check it out. 

Article of Interest: Amazing Things About the Rosary You Didn’t Know

 

New Walden

walden

URL: https://newwalden.org 

Specialty: Catholic Transcendentalism

Description: This blog focuses on the essence of being. It has many articles on Catholic interpretations of the philosophical movement of transcendentalism. Its layout is quite pleasing to the eyes . Their commentaries and articles are full of knowledge and practical advice. 

Article of Interest: The Catholic New Agency Misrepresented Key Amoris Text

 

Catholic Family Men

URL: http://catholicfamilymen.com/blog/ 

Specialty: Catholic dads in community

Description: I love this community of Catholic dads, which provides many rich examples of what it means to be a good father. This blog is a great resource for anyone who is a father or is considering fatherhood. These men show their realness in their photos as well as their words. 

One article: Love is an Action Verb

 

The Catholic Mom

URL: https://catholicmom.com/ 

Specialty: Another parenting blog

Description: Let’s be real people: parents need support now more than ever. Women especially need to have a strong community to help them support their children. This blog covers anything from postpartum to new homeschooling tools. You can also find great recipes, books, tech talks, online hangouts, podcasts, and so much that could be part of a mother’s world!

  1. Thanks so much for the shout out! I really appreciate your work, as well. I would like to second what you said about Big Pulpit and Mr. Tito Edwards – he is the best!! God bless you, your work, and ministries.

  2. Ӏ ցot thiѕ web ρage from my buddy who tolⅾ mе
    аbout this web site aand at tһе moment this tіme І am browsing tһіs
    web page and reafing very informative content at this ρlace.

  3. I’ve just been running around the internet trying to fish out Catholic blogs then I landed here. You’re doing a great job promoting the Lord’s work. I’ve actually seen a mom blog I follow on your list. I’ll check out the rest. Would you mind visiting my blog healthysoulties.com and adding it to your list if you find it qualifies? Looking forward to more reads. Thanks in advance.

  4. I am pleased to find Clarifying Catholicism. I am E.A. Allen, author of the recently published mystery/fantasy for Teen and YA readers, “Percy St.-John and The Chronicle of Secrets.” I often tell people that Percy is a peculiarly Catholic Book in its genre and I am always eager to explain why and how. I would be pleased therefore to post to any of your listed blogs on the subject of Writing Teen and YA Mystery/Fantasy for Catholic kids.

  5. Absolutely Not Biden and any other catholic member who supports abortion with perfect knowledge and understanding of abortion should Never be allowed to receive the body and blood of Christ unrepented . The person brings upon himself judgment when they receive the lord unworthily. You cannot say that you truly know God let alone love God and go against him by supporting the murder of an unborn innocent and then expect to receive the Eucharist. A true Catholic/ Christian should know that.

    It is the duty of Christians to defend the faith and pick up their crosses. You cannot be a true follower of Christ and call yourself Christian if you endorse, support or help procure abortions or support any policies or lead an imoral life contrary to the teachings of Christ.

    “Whoever eats the bread and drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of the Lord. A person should examine himself, and so eat the bread and drink the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many among you are ill and infirm, and a considerable number are dying.” (I Cor. 11:27-30)

    The truth is made clear.

  6. I’d like to share Dr. Donna Chacko’s monthly blog named Serenity and Health (https://www.serenityandhealth.com/). She is a retired oncologist and family doctor of Catholic faith who provides information, inspiration, and perspective to help us to enhance our physical and mental health and bring us closer to God. She also offers online programs, a video cast called Pop-Up Conversations (www.serenityandhealth.com/popups) on health of mind, body, and spirit with authors, spiritual leaders and more. I was recently on her book launch team and she’s great!
