(It’s not linking if it’s done in perfect charity, or something like that…)

Visitors to my comments boxes may have noticed a new voice: the estimable Father Stephanos, O.S.B.. I have had the pleasure of meeting Father, and now you can, too: he’s taken up blogging at One Monk of the Order of Saint Benedict.


  1. Father Stephanos, O.S.B. says

    Thanks for the plug!

    I must confess.

    I prefaced my homily this morning (on Mt. 5:17-19) by retelling the GodsBody bookstore encounter (“How to Make Love like a Porn Star and Be a Good Catholic”).

    The Encounter

    The Homily

  2. Matthew,

    Ah! Something like that….

    Then I shall have a martini or twelve in “parfait charitee,” as Chaucer would say, when the moment calls….

    No offense to you, Father Stephanos – we just need to keep this equivocable young man on his toes…


  3. Father Stephanos, O.S.B. says


    JOB, after twelve martinis your eligibility to be credited for a charitable act of the will would likely be imperfect.

    I would advise that prior to sipping the first glass you raise it saying, “To charity!”

    If by your twelfth glass YOU are still on your toes … um … wow!
