TJP may have only been around for a a little more than a month — but we’re already managing to run sequels (Jeff Johnson’s Words, Words, Words – Part II, taking another look at the language of the new translation of the Mass) and even trilogies (Joe Simmons’s Sarcasm Part 3: On Etymology and Jesuit Romanticism — yes, we know we said “etymology”; go take a look anyway).
Which will be the next TJP piece to hit it big and get a second chance? What will be the first headline to make it to Part 4? Will we run prequels? (We promise they’d be better than the Star Wars versions.) The only way to know is to keep checking out the… Week in Review. Other highlights from this week include:
- All Things Linked went on a Lent kick:
- The spirituality of saying “D’oh!” from Tim O’Brien
- Eric Sundrup found a way to link Ash Wednesday and the red carpet at the Oscars
- And instead of imitating Matt Damon’s angel of vengeance, Matt Dunch reminded us of the Pope’s warning about financial idolatry
- Somehow, Perry Petrich and Sam Sawyer managed to work in two posts not explicitly Lent-linked: finding reverence in indie rock and evidence of God in ice
- Jay Hooks, of TJP Germaphobia video fame, returned to grace our pages with a reflection on the most powerful woman in Mexico, looking at how former gang member and current Homeboy Industries counselor Fabian Debora’s art and life has been touched by Our Lady of Guadalupe
- Back to the Lenten themes, a banner week for our bloggers. In addition to Sarcasm Part 3, we’ve also got:
And we’re only one-sixth of the way through Lent! Imagine what we’ve got lined up for this week. Whatever it is — Part 4, or something more — you’ll find it on our pages, and covered, as always, on Week in Review.
