I'm a 36-year-old lay Catholic from the diocese of Groningen-Leeuwarden. I write about the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. I not only enjoy bringing selected developments to the attention of readers, but I also think that it is sometimes important to allow a wider audience to read about the state of the Church in the Netherlands. That's why a fair number of posts about that topic will be translations of Dutch articles, episcopal writings and whatever else.

  1. Thanks very much for your blog. I think the stats show something significant. The anglophone Catholic zone is not good at languages (fill in the blanks from incompetence to arrogance). You let us know about and give translations of what is going on in the Deutschesprachraum. This is very helpful. You’ve no idea. The Anglophone Vaticanisti don’t speak German either so for the German area (a very important area and I realise that Holland is different) we’re stuck with the self-promoting stuff of Hans Kueng !!!!!! Please give us more insight into what is going on in German speaking Catholic Church. Through the internet we are becoming more ‘catholic’, yes even the English. I can attest that your translations are excellent. English Catholics and American and Antipodeans will catch on. Archbp Mueller will need you. Does Father Finnigan over at the Hermeneutic of Continuity know about your blog?
    Again, many thanks. Katrina from Oberbozen, Italy
