Celebrating Great Catholic Writers


Just as I was designing a new award for Catholic writers,  at the exact same time Nancy Shuman was in church . She describes the moment:

“Pinch me.I have just received a newly minted Catholic Writer’s Award, fresh out of the box, from none other than Melanie Jean Juneau.  And to make the whole thing even more interesting, Melanie was writing about this while I (not having a clue that any such thing was being done) sat at Mass with what I considered a ‘distraction’ suddenly popping into my head.  Wouldn’t it be nice, thought I, if there were a simple, attractive, no-strings-attached-Catholic-bloggers’ award, one acknowledging really good faith-blogging.   I came home, turned on the computer, and found It Had Just Been Done.  Then, even as I was reeling from the timing of that, I discovered that I was actually one of the first recipients.   Pinch me.   The award itself is beautiful (isn’t it beautiful?!!!!?!), and I love what Melanie wrote about it.  Which can be found here: https://melaniejeanjuneau.wordpress.com/2014/05/17/a-new-catholic-writing-award/ ) ‘
What a wonderful job you have done, Melanie.  May this beautiful award spread far and wide”

The joy of living as a child of God

Matthew 18:2-4

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

THIS AWARD HAS NO STRINGS ATTACHED
