Collect

Collect for Purity (said at the beginning of every Mass)

Almighty God, unto whom all hearts be open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love thee, and worthily magnify thy holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Music: Florence + the Machine, and Some Other Stuff

I've been getting traffic from some new places since Crisis published my column, so if you're new to Mudblood Catholic, welcome! To get an idea of the place, I recommend any or all of these posts (or you can root through the Warning Labels to your right):

Raw Tact, Part V: Shrieking the Truth in Love, about the problems with some of the ways we as Christians habitually talk to gay-identified people.

An Appendix to Raw Tact, my most-read post, discussing a Catholic view of what homophobia is (and whether it exists in the first place).

Why Not Ex-Gay?, Part II and Part III, discussing the reasons I've taken a gay Catholic approach rather than seeking reparative therapy through NARTH or some such.

And Mudblood Catholic, Mark II, the point at which I kind of reinvented the blog, and in doing so summarized what I chiefly want to do here.

Finally, though it has nothing to do with the above, this song is amazing (and it always makes me think of God):
