“Dogma Appreciation 101”

This is just a personal note, but I’ve found Mike Taylor from NTRMin. He’s been blogging, for a time under the pseudonym Miguel Sastre (though he explains why he used that pseudonym). I would heartily commend his blog to anyone who wants to try to understand what Roman Catholicism is all about.

I have some fairly specific recollections of Mike from the NTRMin days – most specifically, the phrase describing the Roman Catholic Hermeneutic as “Dogma Appreciation 101”, both here and at Triablogue. Mike was a Roman Catholic seminarian and a Deacon before leaving. But in the process, he received the kind of education that priests received, and he’s in as unique a place as anyone to comment on it.
