He’s Bishop Kevin W. Vann, of Fort Worth, and this week he launched his very own weblog, aptly called “Shepherd of Fort Worth.”

The good shepherd, of course, joins a number of other merry bishop bloggers, including most notably Boston’s Sean O’Malley (“Cardinal Sean’s Blog”) and New York’s Timothy Dolan (“The Gospel in the Digital Age”).

As Bishop Vann notes, in launching his blog:

I believe that this is another way to promote what I called a “spirituality of communion” which is so much in the writings of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. This is also another way of living what is called the “New Evangelization.” As I write these reflections, I certainly write them above all in a sense of gratitude to the Lord for the many blessings of these over five years here now in North Texas. So, in this new Church year, this new year of grace, this is a new moment and venture -not only for me–but for our Diocese and beyond.

Read more and visit often. It looks very good.

And welcome to the blogosphere, bishop!
