When Catholicism becomes a hobby

It is indeed a rather time-consuming thing. Properly, chant is my apostolate, but I do have fun with it. The article is a good warning for me. Fortunately, I have real hobbies; I know there are plenty of young trads who actually have no significant interests outside of trad-dom. So, blogging about theology or liturigcal rubrics (not a bad thing in itself) is pretty much all they do for fun.

That actually was my initial impression, but I wanted to give the author the benefit of the doubt for good intentions.
