Can you believe it? It’s the latest Weekly TCC Field Intelligence Report! And no, we’re not going to rename it the Monthly TCC Field Intelligence Report. But you know how it is…it’s summer, and things kinda slow down. The offices at TCC are as empty as a ghost town this time of year.
Regardless, we’ve compiled a bunch of great pieces this week accentuating the Good, True, Beautiful, and Whimsical. Summertime is a perfect time to catch up on literature and movies, so we’ve included a couple posts on those topics. If you’re finding that life is moving at a breakneck speed, then check out the Catholic Gentleman’s piece on resisting the cult of forever moving fast (it’s short, too!). We also have an essay from one of our faves here at TCC – Monsignor Charles Pope – on the necessity of friendship. And we finish the list with a short video of laughing babies. Who doesn’t love laughing babies, right?
100% free of political punditry, scandalous skullduggery, and obnoxious opinions. You need good news and encouragement to cap off your week – you’ve come to the right place.
