Another Blogger and another, even in Albania

Cardinal Sean O'Malley, the Archbishop of Boston has started it, and another priest friend of mine has threatened to do so, Fr Sean Finnegan has recently started it. Blogging seems to have become the new trend amongst the clergy.
I was speaking to a priest in Albania about the possibility of getting seminarians who are learning English to do one based on those who suffered in the persecution of the Church under Enver Hoxha. he told me about a bishop who succumbed under torture and agreed to work for the police but he used to tell his priests and people, "don't tell me anything I am a spy, I will tell the authorities." Eventually he was shot. Another priest who he works with spent 20 years in prison. I hope Father Martin starts his students blogging soon, in the west we need to know about saints and heroes.
Maybe it might be interesting if in the comment box you left the address of some good priestly blogs or at least Catholic ones, leave them anonymously if you like.
