An Important Announcement to All My Readers and Followers


Announcing The End of Our Run



After careful consideration, I have come to the decision to end all future posts to Faith of the Fathers blogs.

It has been a long journey since the blogs were started in 2005, but several factors are indicative that it is time to end.

  1. Our daily visits average has plummeted from 314 per day for all 23 blogs under the “Faith of the Fathers” banner, to just 81 per day for all of them now.
  2. Our blog subscriptions have also dropped off considerably, from a high of 989 to now being 501. Again, that is for all 23 blogs. The stats show that few subscribers are even clicking on posts at all.
  3. The one and most significant reason is, my eyesight has gotten progressively worse, and it is increasingly difficult for me to make any posts, and those I have been able to do have become fewer and fewer in number. In fact, it has gotten to the point, that I am also going to give up driving, for both my safety and for the safety of others.

I would like to thank all of the subscribers, readers, and benefactors over these nearly 13 years, for your kindness, encouragement, and support.

It has been a goof run, and at times a very satisfying one. My two favorite moments occurred when “Catholic Culture” recommended the reading of my post on Saint Polycarp of Smyrna on my “The Early Church Fathers” blog, and also when the “Ignatius Insight Scoop” blog recommended my2 long posts defending Pope Pius XII on my “Church Under Attack” blog. Having my posts recommended by those two sites, was both exciting, and humbling.

The Facebook Page for my blogs will remain, and you can still follow that page if you'd like, as there are several blogs that I follow there, and I have that set to share those blogs automatically. You can click on Faith of the Fathers Facebook Page if you'd like to be aware of those posts.

Once more, thank you all for your prayers, support, and encouragement over the years. May God Bless you, and Our Lady keep you in Her care!
