Lo and behold, I return from a four-day retreat with Trappist monks — four days spent blissfully chanting the psalms at four in the morning, conversing with geese, napping at mid-day, and devouring brandy-laced fudge at dinner — when what do I find in my e-mailbox but a cheerful note from my favorite blogger in a wimple, alerting me to the news below: I’m a finalist!
I’m sure you all have better things to do, but if your weekend is quiet and you feel compelled to vote for me…well, okay. Go ahead. I won’t stop you. Just click on the logo above (or on the right in my sidebar column) and go to Best Religious Blog and vote.
