Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.

The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

Jamie Beu: (extremely patient) Amateur Catholic

My blog, Orthodoxy - right teachings for a right moral compass, takes its name from the G. K. Chesterton book.

I am a cradle Catholic who has had to explain that faith so many times to so many people, that I ended up studying my own faith more and more and becoming an amateur apologist. I started my blog around the time of the Terri Schiavo murder, and for Lent, my spiritual exercise is posting Lenten meditations on the Mass readings for each day until Easter itself.

Usually, the material for my blog comes from news events (especially abortion-related news), but sometimes it's fueled by something I hear debated on a news msg board or talk radio.

Well, best of luck with your site too, and God bless.

Jamie Beu ( - Orlando, FL

"To have a right to do a thing is not at all
the same as to be right in doing it."
G. K. Chesterton - A Short History of England
We are amateurs at organization thus making Jamie had to prove his patience and persistence by asking more than once. We're very sorry, but you did know up front that we are a buncha amateurs, right? Anyway, enough of that. Hurry aboard and make up for lost time, Jamie.

Thank you for the membership.

It sounds like my prayers have been heard: "Lord, give me patience, and I want it NOW!"
