John Allen in the National Catholic Reporter.

Something I found through the National Catholic Register.

    Here’s another link by way of Amy’s Open Book: Who’s Afraid of Erotic Love?. B16 drops a love bomb on Dan Brown’s comedy of errors.

    Great stuff, Jonathan. I wonder how those fellows visiting the temple prostitutes for spiritual ecstasy (as opposed to physical) knew when to stop? I mean, if it’s physical delight you’re after, the answer is pretty clear, but what if the spirit is willing long after the flesh has become weak?
