Bishop Malone Enters the Blogosphere

Add Bishop Richard J. Malone to the growing number of bishops, archbishops and cardinals who are blogging.  Bishop Malone’s early entries, which were originally published as columns in the Western New York Catholic newspaper, have had a distinct Year of Faith flavor.  His first post focused on Christmas during the Year of Faith while his second blog contains reading suggestions during the year, which Pope Benedict XVI described as a time for new evangelization in the Catholic Church.

The Year of Faith began last October to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council.  It continues through Nov. 24, 2013.

“Blogging is another opportunity for me to reach out to the faithful, particularly during this very special year in the Church” Bishop Malone said.  “I look forward to using my blog to evangelize pew Catholics as well as those who have become inactive in the Church and people who are looking for a spiritual home.  It is important that we bring our message to where the people are, using all available technologies.”

The bishop expects to blog two or three times a month.  His blog is on the diocesan website at www.buffalodiocese.org/News/Blogs.aspx  

Other prelate bloggers include Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, Cardinal Seán O'Malley of Boston and Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington.
