"We both went to church, although Marcia was more involved. Still, I felt a nagging call to do more over the course of our marriage. I engaged in debates online where I used Catholic apologetics to explain and defend our faith and doctrine and looked for other outlets for scholarship and in-depth knowledge. Still, that was tempered by a reluctance to commit fully, even though I became increasingly aware of a gap in my life, in meaning and destination."
"Our trip to Rome was a kind of watershed in my life, and an unexpected one. Marcia and I had always wanted to see Rome, for overlapping but not identical reasons. I joked with Marcia about 'getting our Catholic on,' but that's exactly what happened. I've spent the last year since trying to discern what I should do to commit further to the church, and where my talents can best be used—even if at times in that period I stubbornly clung to my distance from engagement and commitment."
"In all of this searching, it's been important for me to find a path where both Marcia and I can serve together, at least in some aspect. The impulse in me to delve deeper is firmly attached to our relationship. Without my marriage to Marcia, I would not have been capable of connecting to my faith as I have done over the last eighteen years. In Marriage Encounter, we used to have a poster that showed an equilateral triangle, with the husband and wife at the bottom and God at the top. The closer both spouses draw toward God, the closer their union becomes. We have lived that experience in our marriage, and perhaps I understand its truth better now than ever before."
"We both have been feeling a strong tug of the Holy Spirit toward something, individually, for quite awhile. He is calling to us in a deeper way in our lives of service. We both have been praying for discernment for where this is leading us. Although we have both been praying individually, in talking this over we discovered that in our dialog we were both being led in a similar direction."

Ed Morrissey: Age, Parents, Ethnicity
Ed Morrissey was born on 3rd April 1963 and before coming to Minnesota’s Twin Cities, he lived in California, USA.
Details about his father and mother are not disclosed. His ethnicity is Caucasian and has attended Cerritos High School.
He is America’s conservative blogger, columnist, motivational speaker, and talk show host.
In 2003, Ed launched his original blog, “Captain’s Quarters”, and operated it from October 2003 to February 2008. It had far-reaching implications on media and debate that he just couldn’t have envisioned at the time.
He wrote about national foreign policy, the presidential election, and the failings of the mainstream media to vanguard the New Media movement.
Captain Ed was the one who revealed a scandal that could’ve otherwise toppled the Liberal Party in Canada. He is instrumental in bringing accountability in conventional media such as CNN in connection with ethical journalism and reporting.
Chief Blogger is at the forefront of the international blog-o-scene and has successfully expanded this blogosphere into other communication channels.
By 2007, even the members of the National Republican Senatorial Committee were on friendly terms with the Conservative Captains Quarters and reported them as one of the five “best-read national conservative bloggers.”

Ed Morrissey & Responsible Reporting
#1.Adscam or Sponsorgate
Adscam is a scandal involving the Federal Government Sponsorship Programs in the province of Quebec in Canada, and the Liberal Party.
This program was initiated in order to raise awareness of the Government of Canada’s contributions to Quebec industries and other activities. In the same vein, this program would counter the separatist activities of the Parti Québécois.
In 2005, a Canadian judge issued a gag order and banned Canadian media from the hearings of the Gomery Commission.
A source in the Canadian legal media, publicly unknown yet circumvented the gag order, feeding the details of the Gomery hearings to Morrissey, who in turn published them on the blog.
Consequently, the Captain’s Quarters became one of the most-visited news sources, sometimes with as high as 400k views in a day. Since the majority of the viewers were Canadians, it was key in the Conservative victory during the national elections.
From April 2007 up to 2008, Morrissey worked in a call center as a Manager. Thereafter, he became the full-time Political Director with Blog Talk Radio.
His job responsibilities were to host daily internet talk shows, write for one of the company’s blogs, and lead outreach and development for the company among politicians, candidates, and political bloggers.
Early on the 1st March of 2008, Captain Ed joined HotAir and began blogging as a full-time blogger. He joined the pseudonymous Allahpundit at the Hot Air News website. This was a blog created by Michelle Malkin.
Later Captain Ed also became the host for the daily Ed Morrissey Show.
