My son treks from our little suburb into the big city (Pittsburgh) for Mass on Sunday nights, because he likes to go to Mass at the Oratory. “The Oratorians give it to you straight,” he says. I tag along every now and then, so I know he’s right. Most of the times I go, it’s Father David Abernethy saying Mass. His liturgical manner is edifying, his homilies memorable and quite clear about what we’re supposed to be doing.

So it’s a joy for me to announce Father David’s entry into the patristiblogosphere. He’s discussing the Desert Fathers at Philokalia. Check it out!
