My Writing in Other Places

Unfortunately, I’ve been letting the blog slide a quite bit lately (though I do hope to have some new posts up soon.) Part of the reason for the lack of posts here is that I’ve been busy with other writing projects. Here are some articles of mine, which I think will be of special interest to “Sponsa Christi” readers, that have recently been published in other places:

The Oldest Form of Consecrated Life Is Also the Newest,and It’s Growing! (February 11, 2016, on Aleteia.org) – Some of my reflections on the recent international symposium for the Ordo Virginum held in Rome to celebrate of the closing of the Year of Consecrated Life.

In Lieu of Female Deacons, a Proposal (November 11, 2015 in Crisis Magazine) – Wherein I opine that, rather than spending time and resources discussing the possibility of instituting some sort of female diaconate, it might be more fruitful if the Church focused instead on promoting and supporting the Ordo Virginum, as consecrated virgins could easily fulfill many of the perceived pastoral needs which tend to prompt discussion of women deacons.

The Vocation of Consecrated Virginity (February 18, 2015 for Leonie’s Longing) – Some information and advice for former religious Sisters who may be considering becoming consecrated virgins.
