Welcome to our newly redesigned “From the Heart” blog, sponsored by The Visitor newspaper. You’ll find all the same great Catholic content featured on our old site but grouped into new categories that make it easier to find your favorite writers and blog themes. If you’re new to the site, take a tour and see what it has to offer.

“From the Heart” was launched two years ago, and it has gained a number of faithful followers here in central Minnesota. It also has garnered some top awards from the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada. Last year, it was honored with first place for best group blog. This year it garnered second place for best publication blog. Here’s what one of the competition’s judges said:

“I have reviewed this blog for several years now and I enjoy it every time. I love the variety of posts from cooking recipes to inspirational messages to tips on bringing Catholicism into your everyday life. I think that this blog does a great job of capturing day-to-day life in Minnesota and captivating its intended audience. I like that they use photos and clip art throughout the blog posts to keep them bright and interesting.”

I hope you enjoy the blog and the new look. Kristi Anderson, multimedia journalist with The Visitor, does a superb job coordinating the posts and serving as the blog editor. She and graphic designer Barb Simon-Johnson worked together to produce this new look. And, especially, thank you to all the writers who make this blog such a success!

We’d love to get your feedback. Just click on “Contact” at the top of the blog and send us your message.

Joe Towalski is communications director for the Diocese of St. Cloud and editor of The Visitor newspaper.
