Ecclesia Domestica featured at "Shrine of the Holy Whapping"!

(Brendan)

For those of you who don't know what the "Shrine of the Holy Whapping" is, the title of this post is probably something you'd never thought you'd read on this blog. The Shrine of the Holy Whapping is one of the more trafficked Catholic blogs on the internet, as one can see by all of their awards in the sidebar on the right. (I think I used the word "trafficked" correctly there, but hopefully there's no connection with illegal drug activity implied). I've even read their stuff from time to time as I surf Catholic blogs. At any rate, I had no idea that one of the bloggers at "the Shrine," Emily, is actually the Emily from a family with which we are friends from our parish, the Church of St. Paul in Ham Lake, MN. Her mom actually e-mailed Molly and pointed out Emily's post, and now I understand why our blog has been getting so many hits in only two weeks of existence! We've had over 1,100 unique visitors and over 1,350 hits.

You can read Emily's post here.

The comments are really fun to read, and many of them are hilarious. One person suggested that a "liturgical dance studio" might be in order for the home, along with lots of "felt banners." I also liked the suggestion of a 61" HDTV for watching EWTN (of course). I'll have to work those into the plan.

One person who commented unfortunately totally misinterpreted our blog (in contrast to everyone else who posted), but it's natural that not everyone will understand everything we write. Such is the price of blogging :-)

Thanks for the post Emily!
