Commonweal readers will be excited to hear that frequent contributor Paul Elie has launched a terrific new site called Everything That Rises. (The title comes from Flannery O'Connor's collection of short stories, Everything That Rises Must Converge.)

Here are some sample posts, though the whole site is worth checking out:

Seamus Heaney and religion

Vermeer and the government shutdown

Faith, deserts, and Richard Rodriguez
