Mathetes Award

nullMathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) is to make more disciples. So this is the Discipleship Award. I was humbled to receive this award a number of weeks ago from Jean at Catholic Fire, who is a great disciple herself. As I was reflecting on what I was thankful for last week, one of the things that came to mind was the many faithful bloggers out there, taking advantage of the new media to witness to the truth. Since today is the feast of St. Andrew the apostle I thought it might be appropriate to point out some of these modern day disciples.

First is Jennifer at Et-Tu. She is an atheist convert and always has beautiful reflections on all aspects of faith and spirituality – many things that I find myself taking for granted, having been born and raised in the faith.

Then there is Mark Pickup at Human Life Matters. I love Mark’s blog and link to it frequently at Reflections. Mark is a triplegic with advanced multiple sclerosis and has many wonderful observations on life, death and suffering.

Besides Jean’s blog, here are some more of my other favorites:
Thoughts of a Regular Guy
Alive and Young
Driving out the Snakes
The Catholic Knight
Kansas City Catholic
Pro Ecclesia, Pro Familia, Pro Civitate
Causa Nostrae Laetitiae

This one is a new favorite of mine:
Moniales OP – Dominican Nuns of Summit New Jersey

You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father (Mt. 5:14-16).
