Except for a very (thankfully) short period of confusion in my early twenties, I have not strayed from the Catholic Church. While my religious observance is far from perfect, I hope that if it came to it, I would willingly die for my Catholic faith.
I am a Mass-attending-rosary-reciting-Divine-Mercy-litany-of-the-saints-praying-Liturgy-of-the-Hours-Eucharistic-Adoring-Extraordinary-Form-regularly-confessing-mantilla-wearing-N-F-P-genuflecting-kneeling-pro-life-God-bless-the-Pope-Magisterium-forever-until-the-hour-of-my-death-Catholic. (phew)
So the Lumen Christi Blog Award for excellence in Catholic blogging(!) given by one of my favourite blogs, Biltrix, is extremely special to me. Thanks, Biltrix. For excellence in Catholic blogging, go see what the writers at Biltrix are up to.
Here are the rules for accepting this award:
- Name your favourite saint and why.
- Name your favourite part of the Mass and why.
- Name your favourite part of being Catholic and why.
Linking back to this blog is optional.
Pass it on!
- Favourite saint and why – Hmmm. This is like staring at the dessert menu and not being able to decide what to order. I can’t stop at one. St. Monica because she was a fierce mom. St. Gianna Beretta Molla because she was a doctor, a working mom and she made the ultimate sacrifice so that her unborn child would live. St. Therese of Lisieux because she’s my patron saint and wise in her simplicity. St. Teresa of Avila because she was one smart lady. St. Camillus de Lellis because he’s the patron saint of nurses. St. Joseph because he’s been protecting and providing for my family for the past 27 years.
- Favourite part of the Mass -“O Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.” Do I need a reason?
- My favourite part of being a Catholic – I am a grateful member of a religion that is rich in history, tradition, knowledge, holy men and women, heroic saints, and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
I would like to pass the Lumen Christi Award to the following Catholic blogs:
