Spirited Talk

Loyola Press has inaugurated a new program called Spirited Talk:

Welcome to Please become one of our Loyola Press Advisors. Join our unique online community of people willing to share their thoughts and ideas about Catholic life and faith. By sharing your perspective, you will help Loyola Press improve our publications and better serve the greater Catholic community.

From time-to-time, registered Advisors will be invited to participate in online surveys. Most surveys will take less than 10 minutes to complete. Membership is completely FREE. And, just by taking these surveys, you can earn cash, gift certificates and prizes.


Your personal information will be held in strict confidence, your participation will be for research purposes only, and at no time will we try to sell you anything on this site. Advisor participation is voluntary, so you may end your involvement at anytime. And don’t feel that you need to be a theologian or "Catholic expert" to complete our surveys—you only need to be willing to share your honest opinions about everyday life and matters of faith, spirit, and what you care about.

The title “Spirited Talk” leads me to ask why readers here are being barred from comment on Msgr. Clark’s situation when I don’t recall a similar favor for the dozens of homosexual offenders posted on in the past.

Okay, David…you want it open? I’ll open it. And I’ll send you the password so you can spend your day monitering it for idle gossip, nastiness and angry accuastions, if you can find the time in between your three children at home, your five projects that have to get done and other repsonsibilities.
I’ll get right on that.

O.K. I signed up.
One caveat: do not use a password on this site that you use anywhere else. The page is not secure, and so I believe the passwords, and everything else about you, go across the internet in clear text, a serious security vulnerability.

Dear Amy,
Thank you for much for your generosity in helping us “get the word out”. Please let me know if you’d like to “know” something via the site.
Best Regards,
