Internet discussions are excellent for discussing our faith.
One which is loyal to the Church is Catholic Cyberforum, a well moderated discussion group. It has topics on liturgy, all aspects of parish life, social issues, Bible Studies and a really good section based on CASE Where Are They Now? project. They are also currently going right through the catechism, discussing the whole volume, section by section.
I strongly recommend Catholic Cyberforum to loyal Catholics. Whether you prefer the old or the new liturgies, there is good discussion, but no contributions encouraging disaffection with the church get through.

Fr Z (www.wdtprs.com/blog) - a bit single-interest, but if I could read only one blog this would be it. Probably.
and about seven joint-seconds
The Hermeneutic of Continuity (despite Fr Finigan's inexplicable conviction of the importance of the New Synthesis :-)
Seraphic Singles (despite Seraphic's hidden conviction of the importance of Lonergan)
Vultus Christi, when Fr. has proper posts
New Liturgical Movement
ach, the decisions ....
The Curt Jester - seems like a Really Nice Normal Guy
That Holy Smoke blog - gossipy and funny, and some of it Had To Be Said.
icanhazcheeseburger (if it's not Catholic, it should be. Someone persuade Tom Farmer to buy it.)
