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?

amateurcatholic @

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.

If you look closely, you can see that Mary Virginia has been "blessed" with her daddy's nose.

Beats the heck out of the recent spate of images posted here {excluding the cute baby pic of course}. Congrats and God bless you and your whole family.

That's alright Jay, I've passed on my paternal gift of crooked fingers to all my children. In paricularly the crooked pinky. Fortunately my wife has passed on her good looks which has made up for it.

I can't say that Mary Virginia's conception was immaculate (although it was pretty good), but I will say that I will do my best to maintain Mary Virginia's perpetual virginity - or at least until her wedding night.

Good luck with that.
