Budding Theologian

Not to be confused with Buddhist Theologian

By Frater Bovious

The Global Exclaimer, being an attempt at an online newspaper, has lain fallow for lo these many months. There are many reasons, not the least of which is starting a new job, and starting a Master’s course in theology.

I am now employed as the Director of HR for Nautilus Hyosung America, Inc., a maker and distributor of Automatic Teller Machines.

I am also enrolled at Ave Maria Universityin Ave Maria Florida and pursuing a

Tom Monaghan - The Early Years

Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) degree through their Institute of Pastoral Theology. This is a Catholic University started by Tom Monaghan and so this is Catholic Theology. I state this up front for a couple of reasons:

  1. Many people used to follow this blog as a replacement for the late, lamented Print Edition of The Global Exclaimer – they may or may not be interested theology in general and Catholic theology in particular. So, they may want to un-join, un-friend, un-rss, or whatever. I would like to say I will write other articles which many had told me they enjoyed – particularly the Puppycat Page and the Cigar Notes. That may or may not happen.
  2. However, it might be worth hanging around for a two reasons –
    1. The Puppycat Page and Cigar Notes were – in my mind – at least philosophical in nature. And philosophy, classical Aristotelian philosophy that is, is a necessary precursor to faith. If people liked reading those sections, then, I can reasonably state that there is some interest in “things that matter” and this is because:
    2. Philosophy and Theology are interesting.

I have been asked to blog on a Catholic Blog called Joe Catholic, and am trying to decide if I should blog there and link here, or blog here and link there. I do know that I won’t have much time to do either – the course is intensive and requires copious reading and a fair amount of writing. And this semester the three classes will be fascinating, and it will be difficult for me to pull away from what I am doing to write. However, it always seems to help me to write as this seems to be when synthesis occurs.

But, again, this may be of little or no interest to any subscribed to this blog.

Regards,

Frater Bovious

  2. Thanks Vickie! How are things? Yes, many things are different, yet many are the same. I’ve been so busy with the new job and with the Master’s course. But, I hope to be able to do some writing from time to time. Toodles!
