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.

Sister Anne Elizabeth: Amateur Catholic

Dear Amateur Hosts,

At risk of implicating my religious community, I would like to apply for amateur status on the basis of an historical precedent. Our Holy Founder, St. Francis de Sales, said that in the household of the Church, the Order of the Visitation was to be humble and unnoticed: in a kitchen cabinet or the gardener’s shed – the examples he suggested. I imagine that he would want us to be especially amateur in the fast-paced world of blogging. Thank you for your consideration. Our blog is called “Live Jesus!” and our address is below.

Pax et bonum.

Sister Anne E

Monastery of the Visitation, Georgetown
Sister Anne, I wasn't sure whether you are were applying solely for yourself or for your order as a whole. Either way, welcome to the B-Team! I'm sure that you'll be celebrating a very special feast in a couple of days. Please remember your fellow B-Teamers in your prayers. ;)
