Catholic Cardinals on Twitter -
Seeing all of the conclave articles and stories lately, I realized no one was linking to a comprehensive list of Catholic Cardinals active on Twitter. So, I made my own. Let me know if I’ve forgotten anyone!

”Why do we say speedy?”
Katie Beth tugged on my shirt and quietly asked me this during Mass last night. It was right after the First Reading.
Now, this is a girl who always has something funny to say, whether she means to or not. But I was stumped this time. “Speedy…? When do we say speedy?”
I looked over at Sarah, who heard the question, and she had a huge grin on her face. She could tell I was baffled, so she proceeded to whisper-tell me, “You know… As in ‘Thanks speedy God!’”
I had to think about it for a split second. And then it dawned on me: after the readings during Mass, we say “Thanks be to God.” And my kid has heard it as “Thanks speedy God!” for years.
And then we all did that “my-body-is-shaking-because-I’m-stifling-a-laugh” laugh for the next 20 minutes.
What an amazing way to kick off Lent. I thank speedy God for my family every day.
