A friend, Francis B., requested a list of my sources for pro-life news. So, in no particular order, my favorites:
Education and Education-Related
Catholic Education Resource Center
Catholic Education Daily (from Cardinal Newman Society
Ignatius Insight Scoop
Catholic News Agency
National Review Online
Women of Grace
What Does the Prayer Really Say?
Homiletic and Pastoral Review
and because sometimes, I just need a humorous take on all those:
Two ways I organize my news sources:
and when on Facebook, Lists, where I have lists for a) Pro-Life Leaders and Writers, b) Current Events, and c) my mom friends and other close friends who keep up with the same concerns.
Every so often, I go on Twitter to see what people are talking about, but I prefer getting my current events from the above.
I also like taking a peek at how the Catholic youth view their faith and current events from time to time, so I check out Catholic Tumblr blogs.
Note that many of these overlap in terms of the news they report/comment on. It goes without saying that I am not capable of reading all these sources every single day, so it just depends on what time I have. Sometimes I go on FB to catch up on news, sometimes I go on Feedly, other times I rely on friends and family to keep me informed. I try to not to overwhelm myself with too much input, especially during Lent. I process/digest things throughout the day — blogging and journaling helps at times — and when I feel that I’m inundated I shut things down and focus on prayer and family.
Hope that helps!
