Why He is Catholic
Tired of controversy? How about something, as Monty Python used to say, completely different? Here goes: Webster Bull runs a company called Memoirs Unlimited, which helps authors write personal and private family memoirs. In 1988, he and his wife started a company called Commonwealth Editions, which publish books about Boston, Cape Cod and Maine. Why am I telling you this? Because recently Bull started a marvelous blog called "Why I am Catholic?," which answers the question of why Mr. Bull was recently received into the church. As he puts it, "A friend, a fellow convert, asked me out of the blue one day, "So, Webster, why Catholicism?" I was at a loss. I couldn't say. So I started this blog. Each post is a partial answer to his question. I invite you to provide your own answers." That's a great question, he's a terrific writer and it's a lovely blog. Dip into it and see. Full disclosure, a friend alerted me to his blog because Bull wrote that he liked one of my books. No matter, read the blog anyway! Besides, aren't you glad we had an excuse to include this marvelous painting, which hangs a few blocks away from our offices, of Joan of Arc?
