It’s v.27.0 of the Weekly TCC Field Intelligence Report – grab your coffee, or tea, or preferred adult beverage and scroll through this week’s selection of Links That Have Nothing To Do With Politics Or Crises. It’s not that we don’t think those things are important – they are, and can be – but let’s face it: we’re all super tired and worn down of the noise, right? This is where you can catch your breath and catch a break.
With Christmas rapidly approaching, slowing down is a fine remedy – so we headline with Sr Theresa Noble’s piece from Aleteia, on 10 simple ways to sloooooow down this Advent. FreakyDoll found quite a few links pertaining to the liturgical season, along with a smattering of other uplifting and interesting links (100%-free of Russian hacking, too, as far as we can tell!). Be sure to check out ‘Victorian Humour’ at the very end – if it doesn’t make you smile, it’ll surely make you groan.
