THe Louisiana Catholic Bogger Roundup for the 24th of August

Starting in the Diocese of Lafayette

Catholic Tube has a new vid up. This a tad different. It is about Mitt Romney's answer to a question if Bishops should deny communion to Pr Choice politicians.

We go up to the Diocese of Alexandria

Thoughts & Ruminations from Fr. Ryan has two good post up. Here is a post he has that links to article about the Masons. I recently helped priest move to a Church in the Diocese of Alexandria. I was kidding with him that the local Masonic lodge was directly across from his house. He also links to a story in the UK that we have talked about before. That is how Bishops there are supporting a book that is going against Pope Benedict among many other things

Cajun Cottage Under the Oaks has two post since I last checked. Check out Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and And to think... which is a special prayer request

Our Blogger ,which is currently in Texas but is from New Orleans Fr. Victor Brown’s Catholic Daily Message has a post up on the memorial we had yesterday too.

On to the Diocese of Baton Rouge.

Full Circle has a series of posts up today. First he has a post up regarding charges that Bobby Jindal converted to Catholicism simply for political reasons. I like how he makes the point that often folks that convert to the Catholic faith often how our motivations questioned. Bobby is simply a very big publicized version of that. He has a post The Journey Home round table presentation and discussion . This is about the talk he gave at his Church about his conversion to Catholicism. I did not realize this but he wrote 4 articles for Catholic Daily recently. Those articles are Discernment on the internet , Balancing technology with the spiritual life , Getting more out of St. Blogs , and YouTube Evangelists .

Is strongly suggest you read his post Democrats are desperate in Louisiana. He has a series of statements from Democrat elected officials that are not happy with these anti Catholic ads that the State Democrat party is running

The Brown Pelican Society has a series of post up as usual. They have a pro life focus. He also has a link to the Catholic News Agency article on How Bobby Jindal is being attacked for his faith. Read his other posts
