Not dead…just not here!

I’ve noticed that there’s been quite a bit of traffic passing through the blog in the last couple of months so I just wanted to remind visitors that I no longer actively blog on this site. If you’d like to see what I’m writing these days, you might want to check out

Just a reminder…

Hey guys…

David Bates here…just to make sure you know that I’ve moved my blog over to

I’ve been writing pretty regularly since I moved to my own domain. On Tuesdays I usually publish my Lectionary Notes for the Mass Readings the following Sunday. Every week I post an inspiration quotation as part of Wise Words on Wednesdays. And, naturally, I’m still continuing to post funny stuff on Fridays as part of Friday Frivolity.

In the intervening days you’ll find posts in which I review books, ponder issues such as celibacy, as well as have the occasional rant.

So! Please update your RSS readers and email subscriptions and I’ll see you over at!

The Restless Pilgrim Has Moved!

Dear All,

In rather ironic news, it gives me great pleasure to announce that the Restless Pilgrim blog has moved!

Up until now, my blog has hosted for free but it has now moved to its own domain:

I have been blogging since June last year and accumulated over a hundred posts so I decided it was time to commit to this blogging malarkey!

Life has been rather busy the last few months, what with having a vacation back in England, but I have been working hard and a large collection of posts should soon be seeing the light of day…

So, please, head on over to and update your email subscriptions, Google Reader and RSS Readers. See you there!

Thanks for reading,
