This week: The latest issue of New Evangelists Monthly awaits your perusal with over 100 faithful Catholic contributing authors! Spirit Juice Studios has released a new vocations video. A promotional video from a FSSP parish on chapel veils is offered. A Jeff Harris cartoon, as usual, hits the “nail on the head.” An NFL star who sees a bigger picture. Tim Hawkins ponders what an “atheist camp” might be like. Snow, the final frontier for drone automation?
