Welcome to Stomping Crows
This site is here to help explain the teachings of the Catholic Church, and share the joy of the Gospel of Christ. We are a lay run site without any formal authority or approval from the Church. That being said, however, we are 100% loyal to the Pope and the Magisterium. If you ever find anything on this site that is not in line with Catholic teaching, PLEASE Contact Us and let us know. We are always looking to learn and grow in our faith, while helping others to do the same.
After years of studying and talking about God, religion and the Catholic Church we finally decided to create a website where our thoughts, experiences and opinions can be shared with the world. Hopefully they will be helpful to people from all walks of life. You can learn more about the authors of this site on the ‘about us’ page, or just take some time to browse through the site. We are working hard at adding fresh content on a daily basis.
One question that is sure to come up is concerning the name of our site. I came up with the name after reading about Saint Expedite (read more about him HERE). He is a saint from the early fourth century who was martyred. He is depicted in artwork as a soldier who is squashing a crow beneath his right foot. The crow typically has a paper in his mouth with the word ‘cras’ (which means ‘tomorrow’ in Latin).
The legend has it that a crow appeared to St. Expedite when he was considering converting to Christianity, suggesting he put it off until tomorrow. St. Expedite stomped on the crow and converted that day. How much truth there is in this story is very debatable, however, the idea stuck with me that stompingcrows.com would be a nice domain name if I ever decided to start a website about religion, and so, here we are.
One of the main reasons we started this site is because we enjoy talking about God, religion and the Catholic Church so much. I love learning new things about it, helping others to understand it better and discussing it in general. We have lots of topics that we are planning on creating content for over time, but if you have any specific questions or requests, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to write a post (or multiple posts) on topics that you’re interested in.
Thank you and God Bless
