About the Blog:
Newsandals.blogspot.com began in May 2008 after I was accepted as a postulant to the Capuchin Franciscans of the Province of Saint Mary (New York/New England).
The opinions expressed within these pages (blog posts and Twitter) are solely my own and do not represent the opinions of the Capuchins, nor the Church Universal.
Enjoy my daily musings on religious life, theology in general, the sad plight of the New York Mets and just about anything else rattling around my brain.
