"Look! A black Catholic!"

One of the most enjoyable perks of having this blog is that I get to introduce new, fresh, original, orthodox, and fun Catholic bloggers to the world! 

I seem to do this wonderful thing about once a year.

First, it was Danya's blog, HE Adopted Me First. Remember that? It was almost two years ago that I wrote this post, introducing one of the funniest and most uplifting blogs that y'all now know and love. (And I don't mean to make anyone jealous, but she is even funnier and more inspiring in real life. Yup, she is.)

Then, last summer, there came the introduction of Steve Gershom to the world, when I published this guest post. That piece is still going viral and is by far the most popular Bubble post ever. His blog is doing quite well. :)

And today, I am sooooooo excited to introduce a much-needed voice and perspective, that of my dear friend, LT Horton, whose fabulous new blog is now officially unveiled...


I took this photo of LaToya in my backyard on Easter Sunday. Neither of us had any idea then that this would soon be the face of a blogger! Yee-haw!


LT kicks things off:

Once upon a time there lived a young college student, far from home, enjoying the freedoms that came from the post-feminist/civil rights era  that enabled her to party like a Dionysus groupie and worship the golden calf. As time passed this student grew emotionally wearied by this lifestyle and felt a growing emptiness. One evening she found herself crying uncontrollably. She didn't know why, but she couldn't stop. In the wee hours of the morn, still unable to gather herself, she felt a need to leave her home and find peace. She hopped into her dilapidated truck and drove a quarter of a mile down the road to the nearest church. Pulling into the parking lot, she cried and prayed. She prayed harder than she had ever prayed before in her life. She prayed that the growing emptiness in her heart be filled by something...by anything.  She sat in that parking lot and prayed. Finally the crying ceased, she went home and emotionally exhausted, fell asleep. In the morning, when she awoke, she knew she had hit a crossroad and things would forever be different.

Read the rest of her introduction, here.

And expect very good things to come.

Please, go over and visit and give her a warm welcome to the blogosphere!!
