I want to take a moment to express my gratitude on a number of fronts:
First, thanks to all who registered and for taking the time to contribute with comments. That includes those who don’t have the same view that I, and most other regular commenters here, have.
That brings me to this: I really appreciate the civility on all sides as that makes this space so much more than just a place to do battle. I want this to be a place where Catholics can learn the Faith. Thanks for making that happen.
Last but not least, I want to say thanks to those of you who kindly sent a donation. A number of you expressed in private notes a recognition of how costly it is to have web design work done. True enough, but my hope is that all of us will realize great spiritual dividends in return. I’m especially hopeful that the Forum will grow into a good place for that to happen. (Please make use of it, and invite others to join in!)
On the matter of expenses, I’m investigating the possibility of placing suitable ads on the site to help sustain this effort. There will be some trial and error involved if and when I go that route. We’ll see how it goes. I just want to give you a heads up.
Thanks again to all!
