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.

Omis I. Dlaykadrinck: Amateur Catholic

I'm Omis I. Dlaykadrinck, and I have a silly excuse of a blog called "Higher Plane." At first, my bloggy motto was "The Higher the Plane, the Closer to God." But pretty soon it was apparent that I little that was important, so I changed the tag line to: "Soaring towards inanity!" Which could be correctly interpreted as "Soaring towards insanity!"

If you're looking for members who barely do their jobs, I think I could qualify. In my glamorous flight attending career I've been known to say, or at least think, "Look, I'm just Diet Pepsi or 7up. If you need more info, you'll have to ask the captain." I've also been tempted to say things like, "You can't store your bag? Sorry...too heavy for you, too heavy for me." Or, "You pack it, you rack it." I guess that just makes me sassy, in addition to amateur, and you don't have a category for that.

I try to be a better Christian than that, fortunately. I try to pray the rosary, but I keep forgetting the mysteries, and then realize I keep leaving my prayer card elsewhere. I go to Mass, and sometimes my mind wanders. But I dedicate myself to keep trying, and I think God recognizes that, and little by little the Holy Spirit grows in me.

B-List? Yeah, that's about right.

Thanks. Buh-bye now.
