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.

Jan K: Amateur Catholic

I'm a member of the B-Team because I don't have a "ministry," nor would I
know what to do with one. How many times have you heard that this week?
See, I told you so.

I'd be a EEM, but they don't need me (clearly-it's crowded) and the Holy See
says nix it anyway. I don't argue with the Holy See. They're the real
A+Team. I'd teach CCD but they don't need anybody apparently. I'd have to
use some other book anyway--their's isn't so good. I'd be in a rosary group
or something but it's always when I work. What can I say? I'm an SFO, but
I'm not even very good at that.

So here I am, blogging when I think of it, and praying when I can. Trying
to behave and not doing a great job. See: B-Team. But there's one great
thing about all this. What good stuff there is ain't mine. It's God's.
And I can deal with that.

So, if you don't mind, can I be one of you? Thanks and God bless.

I'm really sorry about that EME thing not working out, I thought the general consensus was that you can never have enough EMEs. ;)

Anyway, there's no doubt that you have always been one of us - we're all just coming into the light now. Sort of like when Constantine made it safe to be Christian. The Christians were still aliens in a foreign land awaiting their Heavenly kingdom, but at least they could let that be known (yeah, I purposely used that analogy because of that great quote in your sidebar). From one Michigan B-Teamer to another, welcome into the light. ;)

Ah! St. Blog has interceded for me!

I was struggling to figure how to get that button to appear on my blog (other than just the image)!

You've answered my prayers.
