Catholic Twitter is Crazy

Chance are, if you are reading this, you are a part of the insanity known as Catholic Twitter.

And, I thought it might be valuable to take a moment to jot down a couple of reasons why Catholic Twitter is completely crazy...

Catholic Twitter is a strange part of the internet that few "regular folks" would dare to adventure.

But, for us faithful Catholics with a penchant for hilarious Mass-themed GIFs or Thomas Aquinas jokes, it is a glorious refuge.'s why it's completely crazy.

  • You realize that there are actually a large number of Catholics just as weird as you.
  • You tweet a joke about Leah Darrow demanding green Skittles before she'll give a talk, and then she actually shares a picture of herself with said Skittles.
  • You just might end up on Catholic Radio, getting a book deal, or starting a podcast without even realizing what just happened. 
  • You get to attend all kinds of conferences without having to get up off the couch.
  • You get trolled by people just for making a joke.
  • You have an opportunity each and every day to respond to people with love and kindness, instead of what you actually want to respond with.
  • You realize there's these things called the "O Antiphons" that you'd never heard of before. 
  • You get to see just how deep the Sedevacantist weirdo thought process goes. 
  • You just mind end up winning a Catholic Hipster contest!
I could go on and on, but now it's your turn.

Why do you think Catholic Twitter is completely crazy? Share it with us on Twitter (obviously) @theghissilent.

  1. There's Catholic Twitter, and then there's Catholic Tumblr...a true nest of strangeness! Lol! "If you see this, reblog and say a Hail Mary."... "Where's your sources?"/"Here's my sources!"... Fr. Angel, puns, memes galore.
