Under construction: Update 15.aug.20

Behind the scenes, your blogger and a Catholic web developer have been consulting with WordPress and Facebook technical support to determine why Facebook blocked posts from this blog domain at the end of July 2020.

Attempts to remedy the situation have grown incrementally more drastic—and more frustrating—in an effort to identify a specific post that may contain a bad link with malware or some other malicious code embedded in a post.

We have backed up all posts from 25 July forward and deleted the same, but Facebook will not publish blog posts from WordPress with an Open Graph image; simply stated, when WordPress publishes our blog posts to Facebook, there is no featured image.

Facebook has blocked our entire blog domain.

Therefore, we will continue to post here to our blog going forward with our usual daily features and feast day liturgies. We will offer similar publications for our Facebook readers on a mirror Blogger website, also. And, we now publish bite-sized quotes and links to more information about the saint of the day to the Catholic Answers Forums’ Carmelite Quote of the Day topic.

We will take action on the deleted blog posts from July and August when we learn the outcome of an appeal that we filed with Facebook several days ago.

Until then, we beg for your prayers as we entrust this concern to the intercession of Blessed Titus Brandsma, whose 27 July liturgy Facebook marked as spam.

    1. Yes, we have heard of this app. For the moment, we believe that it is important to be present on those platforms where our Discalced Carmelite General Curia is present. We keep our OCD General Secretariat for Information updated on this ongoing situation, since they share the liturgies from this blog on Facebook and Twitter with their own followers.

  1. Thank you for the info. I have just prayed at some length, entrusting this matter to the protection and intercession of Blessed Titus, the journalist. I will be circumspect on this public blog, but I am so sorry it has got to this point. I am not at all sure that when a single app user flags a post as spam, that the principle of the presumption of innocence is always maintained these days, as in so much of public life now. We ought to inform Blessed Titus’ postulator when he sorts it for you. He is one of my favourites among the saints and blesseds; he will be a great intercessor.

    1. It could have been AI that flagged the posts. It’s difficult to say. Whatever the case, the new mirror blog has been created for the benefit of Facebook readers.
