In addition to better security, I chose WordPress when I had to revive my blog as Monastic Musings Too because it allows me to create pages – static web sites – that are coordinated with the blog.
Oblate pages. I’m beginning the first project with pages: some resources for the Oblates of our monastery. You can see the little link “Oblates” in the upper right corner – it takes you to a front page, and there are links from there to other pages. It’s all under construction, and I’m counting on the oblates themselves to contribute many of the links and resources.
What’s an oblate? Oblates of St. Benedict are Christian individuals or families who have associated themselves with a Benedictine community in order to enrich their Christian way of life. Oblates shape their lives by living the wisdom of Christ as interpreted by St. Benedict. Oblates seek God by striving to become holy in their chosen way of life. By integrating their prayer and work, they manifest Christ’s presence in society. (Copied from the Order of St. Benedict website.)
