I am an American, Chicago born…oh wait, that’s a different Bellow character.

Actually, I’m not either of Bellow’s fictional characters but I’m using them for this blog.  Like Augie March, I too was born in Chicago, but that’s sort of where the similarities end.  I was born to the grandchildren of immigrants — unlike Augie (and Bellow) my parents are a mix.  My mother is Italian and my Dad is a Jew.  I adopted my mother’s Catholic faith, drifted away from the church in my 20s and 30s, and thanks to some brilliant Protestant friends, came back to Christ and the Catholic church within the past couple of years.  Praise be to God, He does work in mysterious ways.

This blog will be about Christianity, politics, Chicago, culture, etc.

    Just discovered this site via the Gormogons and the Czar. Enjoyed it very much, and have added it to my favorites. Keep writing.

  3. Sorry to contact you like this, but I just reviewed my email for my blog and noticed that you commented back on May 13th. I was genuinely distraught when I saw it, and so I reposted your comment. You can find it here:


    I’ll be replying to it shortly after I make this comment, but I just wanted to inform you of the mistake. Again, my sincerest apologies for this happening. Thank you for contributing.
