It is my goal to try to point readers to what I perceive to me some of the more interesting blog posts and articles available online. I try to post a set of links like this one every other Friday (though that is not a guarantee). For more frequent suggestions visit our After Emmaus page on Facebook. 

If you would like to see something included next time please leave a comment here.
