|New member of the Guild of Blessed Titus, Matthew Schellhorn|
It is very encouraging that the Guild of Blessed Titus Brandsma is able to attract Catholics who are do not have their own Catholic blogs to the Guild, as contributors. The Guild serves Catholics and the Church, as well as making a contribution to the evangelisation of the world through the internet and I would like to remind all of our readers that we are happy to accept contributions to the Guild from those who do not have active blogs of their own. Recently, we have had two excellent contributions by a Catholic layman, Nicholas Bellord, on the concerning developments that surrounded both the 2014 Synod and the highly controversial preparatory document for 'Synod 15'.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all members and readers of the Guild of Blessed Titus Brandsma a very happy feast, in these challenging times for all Catholics who remain faithful to the Magisterium of the Church and to thank all who contribute to the Guild, members who continue through their own blogs the mission of the Guild and those who contribute to the Guild blog, as well as those who support the work of this Gatholic bloggers in this Guild with their prayers. Do keep the Guild and all Catholic bloggers in your prayers. We need heavenly assistance in our work and we do not know for how long the freedom of speech we have long enjoyed will remain a right, rather than a privilege granted by hostile Government in an age that wishes to smother the message of the Gospel. On this subject, as well as the other challenges we face today as Catholics in an increasingly hostile secular society, I have written a post on this, Blessed Titus Brandsma' feast.
