Honouring Great Catholic Writers…and Old Friends


I have not figured what is going on but seven  long time blogging friends who happen to be great Catholic writers all clicked on my blog today??!! That fact reminded me that even though I created an award for Catholic writers, I only gave it out to 3 people! SOO, I am passing on this award to connect with old, neglected friends by honouring their commitment to writing about the truth, articulately. but also with love.

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.

Nancy Schuman is hilarious. After she recieved the award, she said….

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!

Pinch me.  But not just yet.  I’m not quite ready to wake up.

  1. Thank you, Melanie! We just came home after being on vacation for two weeks and I found your comment on my blog. What a wonderful and thoughtful surprise. I wasn’t planning on writing a blog post for next week but you just gave me inspiration. 🙂 I love the look of the award. Well done!
