Doxos is the blog of a Roman Catholic Christian working out his salvation in San Francisco, The California Republic.
This blog contains a good number of things, sometimes religious, sometimes not. Please remember me in your prayers.
Seduxisti me Domine et seductus sum.

(Closing lines of the Táin Bó Cúalnge)
