I’ll make this note short and sweet, because I’ve listed lots of great articles for you to enjoy with your Saturday brunch.

I’m trying not to drown in a tidal wave of Catholic news, as Salt Lake City prepares to welcome our new bishop during a ceremony on Tuesday. The installation serve is predicted to span 2.5 hours, which will be a new record for me in terms of sitting still. Wish me luck collecting lots of interesting, sensory details and using Catholic vocabulary correctly. I can’t wait!
