The Pope's Resignation -- Where to Get Your News

"Thanks very much. I'll be here all week."

Pope Benedict XVI announced he will step down from the papacy as of the end of the month.  The next few weeks should be very interesting in its commentary on all this.

If you're interested, a couple places you might check to keep up:

America Magazine's In All Things blog  and its main website -- they'll have some of the best stuff you're going to find over the course of the next few months.

Commonweal Magazine, too, will have extremely strong coverage. I particularly recommend their blog, dotCommonweal; a wide variety of strong points of view. 

Googling God, a blog written by long time youth minister Mike Hayes. Mike writes a lot about issues for young Catholics, but I'm sure he'll have some very interesting commentary over the next few months. He's got a great piece up right now collating a lot of what others are saying.

I hear a lot of good things about The Deacon's Bench, written by Deacon Greg Kandra.  Greg's a very fine writer. I'm sure he'll add to the conversation.

If you're on Twitter, definitely follow Tom Reese's feed, Jim Martin, and Grant Gallicho (from Commonweal).  Between the three of them, you'll get access to a lot of others doing the best stuff day to day.

If you're looking for an international perspective, I always recommend Australia's Eureka Street -- I think Andy Hamilton over there is one of the best columnists on Catholic things that you could find, and Michael Kelly also always brings interesting and important things to bear.  You might also check out Catholic News Asia for a different take on things.

If you want my advice, stay away from CNN.  They just don't cover these things terribly well.  Major networks are not much better, but what are you going to do?

And if you're looking for a little more of the silly (see below), you might check my Twitter feed.



Pope waves goodbye to Cardinals, sings Meryl Streep classic "I'm Checkin' Out". 

More of my own take on all this tomorrow.
