Welcome to v.25.0 of the Weekly TCC Field Intelligence Report! Yes, there was no FIR last week – sorry about that. Turns out, FreakyDoll crashed while searching for stories and articles on the Good, True, and the Beautiful in the wake of the presidential election. All the filters and screeners and extractors reached critical mass and simply overloaded the system. She needed a break along with the rest of us, it seems.
So we scrubbed the whole thing down with copious amounts of bleach, Febreeze, and prayers over the weekend, and voila! All systems go! FreakyDoll set the Post-Election Navelgazingometer to zero, properly calibrated the Angst Minimizer, and disconnected the Papal Offthecuffremarkoscope. Which means you get links to stories about the Real Blessed Lucy, a couple pieces on preparing for Advent without going crazy, a post on keeping everlasting love in your marriage, a look on supporting Catholic Arts & Letters, and a whole lot more.
