Priests and Social Media

I find this so amusing - my first invitation to "friend" someone on Facebook came from a priest.  I didn't even have a Facebook account at the time and months later when I finally caught up with the rest of the world, Father was the only friend I had - at least until other requests came along.

Imagine my surprise when I got an email last week from a well-known priest blogger inviting me to follow him on Linkedin.  I didn't have a Linkedin account either, but I couldn't very well let Father down , could I?  I have an account now and what I'm supposed to do with it other than just let it be, I'm not quite sure.

I wonder if my priest "friends" will return the favor by clicking the Follow button on my blog? 

Incidentally, if you are new to the blog and have been kind enough to join me as a follower, please let me know and I'll be sure to return the favor.  If you have linked to my blog and I haven't returned the favor, please let me know and I'll rectify that right away.

As a rule, I only link to blogs that are authentically Catholic. 


  1. Wow, sounds like you are ready for Pinterest!

    I still dont know what it is, but I think I have an account.

    1. Weird that everyone is suddenly talking about it on this weeks' posts! It's been around quite a while! It can suck all the time out of your day, though! I wrote about it a little today also...must be a January thing. lol

  2. I only recently discovered your blog and have added yours to my follow list.

    1. Thank you, I will do the same. It's a little more complicated with WordPress but I'll give it a shot.


Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
