Congratulations, Mike Aquilina!

The judge has rendered a decision. Having drawn his name from her favorite cowgirl hat, Rebecca Pursiful has officially declared Mike Aquilina the winner of this year’s Blogiversary Writing Project. As soon as he gets back to me about which book he would like to receive, it will be speeding his way.

I’d like to thank Mike for his devotion to making the Fathers of the Church seem a bit more accesible, his occasional comments on this blog, and especially for the pun-ishment he often inflicts upon his readers in his post titles!

Thanks, Mike. I’m glad I’ve gotten to meet you, at least digitally.



  1. Mike says:

    I feel like the winner on “The Price Is Right.” I’m jumping up and down right now. As soon as I stop typing, I’ll put my hands over my mouth and start weeping.

    Thank YOU, Doc, for a website that’s remarkable for its reason, civility, and good writing. Happy day!

    Somehow I missed that the entry was supposed to be posted on my blog (duh), so it is late, but you might still be edified by my verse. Check it out. šŸ™‚


  3. D. P. says:

    Mike: As long as you don’t try to kiss me…

    SingingOwl: Your entry was a true gem, and I entered you in the drawing proleptically at any rate.


  4. What, no prize? Oh, well, I gave the only entry for Smyth, so that’s worth something, personally. And I liked all the other entries. Congrats, Mike. And thanks, Darrell, for a fun contest.
