For those of you who don't know me (which I am sure is most of this readership) my name is Br. Allen Martin. I am a currently finishing up my novitiate with the Carmelite Order, professing my Simple Vows this June. I have a degree in Philosophy from Loyola University Chicago and I am a graduate of St. Joseph's College Seminary. Andy and I were at the seminary together last year (I was a Senior when he was a Freshman). I recently came across this site and became hooked. I think that this is a wonderful way of responding to Pope John Paul II's call for a "New Evangelization" and I knew instantly that this was something that I wanted to be a part of. The use of all "new media" is turing out to be a wonderful new means to spreading the Gospel to people of all walks of life.
I will be writing posts here (regularly I hope, but at the very least from time to time) looking at a variety of games from Catholic point of view, and even unlock the "secrets" of some of these popular games. And just so you know, where I say "secrets" I am not referring to the hidden weapons, turing on "God-mode", or how to get unlimited ammo. No, when I say "secrets", I am referring to the Catholic undertones which run throughout many of todays popular games.
So to close this introductory post, I want to say that I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you, and I am also looking forward to hearing your thoughts and perspectives.
May God Bless you, and Our Lady keep you!
