July's Blog of Note: Speak the Truth in Love

Speak the Truth in Love

July's blog of note, Speak the Truth in Love, originates in  Alberta, Canada, and began publication in May, 2010. It features articles on a wide range of topics of interest to Catholics regarding the Church, and current issues within society that enervate the culture. Blog author, Randy, a convert from a reformed protestant tradition, who is "trying to understand Catholicism and help others understand it," offers original, thought-provoking commentary. This husband and father of six knows the joys and challenges of raising a Catholic family amid the increasingly hostile secular mentality. His most recent post: "The Stoning of Soraya M" discussing the film of the same name about an Iranian women who is stoned to death after being falsely accused of adultery; contains this insight that is worth pondering:
What happens when moral principles lose out to sentimental stories? Morality goes backwards a few thousand years. Really with the 10 commandments and a few other ancient moral codes we saw a move of humanity beyond moral feelings and advance towards the notion of moral principles. 
Speak the Truth in Love was a recipient of our 2016 New Evangelization Award for Excellence in Catholic Blogging. This award honors Catholic bloggers for their unique contributions in evangelizing a society that is increasingly hostile toward Judeo-Christian principles and the "culture of life" with content that is faithful to the Magisterium of the Church. This Catholic weblog is certainly deserving of such recognition. It is one of several notable Catholic blogs from our northern neighbor dedicated to advancing and explaining the Good News of Christ. Consider making it a regular part of your internet viewing.
