A musician specializing in Renaissance lute, Julian Kwasniewski is also an artist, graphic designer, and writer. He has been published in numerous venues including The Catholic Herald, Catholic World Report, National Catholic Register, and Crisis Magazine. You can find some of his artwork and music on Etsy and YouTube.
Note: Brad Miner’s rich account yesterday of art in Rome and today’s somewhat light-hearted recommendations for what to do in this silly season in the Church remind us that, though we are always in a spiritual battle and confronted with serious controversies, we have to live as a redeemed people for whom God’s goodness, truth, and beauty are still present in our world. At The Catholic Thing, we’ve always strived to bring you that fullness of the Faith without neglecting more painful matters. You can click here, for instance, to listen to our latest podcast with Francis X. Maier on the U.S. bishops’ annual meeting last week. And while you’re at it, please don’t forget also to click the Donate button. We’re in the midst of our year-end fundraising. And it’s up to you whether we can continue to bring you the full range of things we do in the coming year. It’s easy. Fast. Tax-deductible. Just a click. Do it. – Robert Royal
