Look at the home page of American Catholic.
American Catholic site is a step child of St Anthony Messenger Press. ST Anthony Messenger Press is ‘liberal/modernistic Catholic’. I looked at a couple of other saints on there, they seem to take a modernistic approach, wringing out all or much of folklore from the hagiography of older famous saints. They pretty much wring the stories dry. I find this even less attractive than hagiography and certainly less inspiring and informative.
Although I find myself doing much the same thing when reading hagiographies—mental balancing folklore vs truth, these people have an agenda.

Thanks. That’s pretty much what I figured.
