Custos Fidei News Feed Expanding, Growing, & More!

The news feed you all see on the righthandside of the Custos Fidei blog is going to be upgraded, big time.

Many of you mostly come here to read those breaking news stories arriving from around the world. Well, some of you may not know that I use Custos Fidei to test new ideas, ie, the Global News Site that I benched for now among other things ( was fine tuned on Custos Fidei before having it's own website).

For roughly three years I've been searching for ways to create a website for this news feed and after many trials and errors, I am getting close to launching it. It works like a feed, ie, feedly, but an audience is always available for such a site. Especially for breaking global Catholic news stories. The site already has a name and it will be up and running on Monday, July 21. I will announce the 'Go-Live' here and at The American Catholic before the end of July.

If you have any ideas on how to improve what you already see on the news feed here at Custos Fidei, please leave comments or contact me via email or both. I promise the website will be spiffy, engaging and expansive (and continuously in development, always improving).

Anyways, I'll still keep the Custos Fidei feed, but you may just switch after it's launched.

The Focus of the New Aggregater Is Narrowed Down

Thank you all for reading this and trying to understand what this new aggregater is going to be.

Yes, it isn't Catholic, but once I give you my newest definition, a much more focused definition, you'll understand like Blessed Cardinal Newman.

I want to offer a service that involves geopolitical issues, ie, offering news analysis and opinion on international matters.  And if possible, within a historical context.

The goal is to offer global news that gets you to think about the international implications.  To understand where we came and where we are heading to.

I have a name, but I need to secure the rights to this name.

If you are reading or skimming along, you (hopefully) will have an idea of what I'm trying to pull off.

Think of it as RealClearWorld with a little bit of RealClearHistory, but better.  Much better.

New Aggregater Starting Tomorrow

Yes, it's been awhile, but I've been busy building up my other websites that is my livelihood.

Anyways, if you all remember that I used to post a daily round-up of posts from the Catholic blogosphere that later evolved into it's own website.  Well, I'm at it again but in a different genre.

Beginning tomorrow morning I'll be posting, daily I hope, on news analysis and opinion from around the world on society, history and culture.  Yes, it's a bit vague, but it's much better than my abortive attempt when I launched Big News Wonk.  Which was an amalgamation of politics and world news.

The politics portion of Big News Wonk returned to the God & Caesar website, but the world news portion I've been working on and tweaking all 2014.  Before I launch it, I'll be posting what I think are important global news links on society, history, and culture daily.

So enjoy!

Dr. Kathryn Karges and Women’s Health Care

I wanted to get the word out about a special talk coming up at St. Theresa's in Sugar Land.  Tuesday, October 22nd at 7:30pm, Dr. Kathryn Karges, MD, CFCMC, will speak about her special pro-life OB/GYN practice at St. Joseph's Hospital in Houston and the advances of Natural Reproductive Technology (NaProTECHNOLOGY) to help identify and treat a variety of women's health problems.

Dr. Karges is one of only 10 fellowship-trained NaProTECHNOLOGY surgeons in the U. S.  She applies the innovative science of NaProTECHNOLOGY to treat women for infertility and a full range of gynecologic health concerns.

Dr. Karges has special interests in the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding, polycystic ovarian disease, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), post partum depression (PPD), recurrent miscarriage, minimally invasive surgery, and the diagnosis and treatment of infertility.  In addition, she has received specialized training in da Vinci Robotic-Assisted surgery as well as microsurgical training for repair of damaged fallopian tubes.  

The talk will take place in Room A of the Family Life Center at St. Theresa Catholic Church in Sugar Land (705 St. Theresa Boulevard, Sugar Land, TX).  Child care is available.

Ignitum Today Update

The Ignitum Today website has been down for a day and counting.

We are working to resolve this issue and how have a timetable to offer. IT should be up by Monday morning if not earlier, barring any other issues.

We were not attacked, we are just experiencing growing pains of a surge in visitors and and increase of database resources that will be resolved shortly.

The other websites are also suffering slow down issues, but nothing to worry about.

Thank you for your understanding and your prayers are appreciated.

 In Jesus, Mary, & Joseph,

Tito Edwards
Co-Founder of Ignitum Today
