News Aggregators

Bloggers of our kind love using Catholic news aggregators. These are sites grouping all sorts of news concerning the Catholic world, all of them linked for yours convenience. 

When I started blogging, “New Advent” was the first Catholic aggregator I used regularly, particularly because it was the only one I knew. But I never was satisfied with it, because the smell of molasses is too obvious to be tolerated for very long. Some good bloggers are featured regularly, but they also have a rather continuous presence of that particularly abrasive blog with the red beard, and another blog specialising in innocuous platitudes for Catholic mothers thinking they fight the good fight by reading her platitudes on the Internet. 

In a word, “New Advent” is rather lame. Not much better is “the”, though I’d say the latter tend to have good content more often. 

The best I have found up to now is the “Pewsitter”, pushing the Catholic agenda without any shyness. If you follow only one news aggregator, I suggest you follow this. 

The “Pewsitter” is, though, prevalently focused on the USA, at least from what I can see. 

If anyone has (or had) good experiences with other sound Catholic news aggregators, I would be very grateful if he could share them with us.
