The Good Noise Blog

Sr. Margaret Dynski, SSJ, MD, a Rochester, NY, surgeon, recently wrote to the editor of The Joyful Noiseletter: "In these uncertain and scary times, would it be possible to issue a happy, lift-me-up version of The Joyful Noiseletter? The news media and social media are drowning people in a tsunami of bad news. But the Gospel is always "the good news." So The Joyful Noiseletter has introduced "The Good Noise Blog" on its website that will regularly feature some of JN's most inspirational and hilarious articles from our past 35 years, on the blog and on JN's Facebook. It will enable JN subscribers to share these articles with their friends on Facebook and give them a faith-lift.
