NOW SHOWING AT A BLOG NEAR YOU: CATHOLIC MEDIA PROMOTION DAY

vlcsnap-00001

The day has arrived where everyone with a blog, podcast, or Facebook page is encouraged to list their favorite 3 blogs, 3 podcasts, 3 other media, 3 random Catholic things online. Now, as you can guess by the size of my blog rolls over there, being forced to limit my choices to no more than three seems like something of an injustice, but you gotta do what you gotta do. For my recommendations, I’m going to try and choose those Catholic sites which relate in some way to the themes found here.

BLOGS

Acts Of The Apostasy We like a good laugh around these parts, and if you want humor, then you’re sort of required to stop by LarryD’s place.
Decent Films

I realize there are some people who actually like to watch so-called good movies, so Steven D. Greydanus’ blog is as good a place as any to find reviews of some from a Catholic perspective.

The Sci-Fi Catholic D.G.D. Davidson’s site is actually on (permanent?) hiatus while he’s in the seminary and abroad, but you’re bound to find some interesting book and movie reviews in his archives. Just take care not to upset Snuffles.

PODCASTS

The Catholic Laboratory

A podcast and website about the Catholic faith and science. Not mad science, mind you, but good stuff anyway.

A Good Story Is Hard To Find

Julie D from the Happy Catholic and Scott D. Danielson from Rivets and Trees get together and discuss  books from a Catholic perspective. Some of them have spaceships and zombies in them.

St. Irenaeus Ministries

St. Irenaeus Ministries is a center of orthodox Catholic mission and renewal in Rochester, NY offering some of the best audio scripture studies around.

OTHER MEDIA (For this, I’m going with apps for my Android)

iCatholicRadio

Mostly live feeds from EWTN delivered straight to your phone, but that’s not a bad thing.

Catholic One The interface leaves a little to be desired, but this app gives you a prayer book, a rosary, the liturgy of the hours, the stations of the cross, AND access to the NAB. It’s a pretty good Swiss army knife of a Catholic app.
DivineOffice.org

An excellent audio Liturgy Of The Hours you can download or stream to your phone. Great for those times you’re stuck in the car at prayer time. The Android app is actually still under construction,  but I think they deserve a mention anyway.

Well, that’s my contribution. Be sure to head over to the Wall at Facebook.com/PromoteCatholicism and see what everyone else likes.

Thanks for the plug, kind sir! And if you've read yesterday's post, you would have seen your sage advice put to devious blogging use!

God bless!

I just saw it. A new master of Fumetti is born! I'll have to link to that one.
