The Mathetes Award

A few days ago Swissmiss over at St. Monica's Kneeler awarded this blog the Mathetes award! As you will read below, the award is presented to blogs that the awarder feels are " acting in the role of a disciple of Christ" and "share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do". Thanks!

Here is the description of the award from the original website:

Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do. In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for (1)this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God), (2) the person that awarded it to you, and then (3) name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ. If you know of other deserving recipients of this award, and would like to start a new string, then please post a link to where you've started in in the comments to this post. I would love for many deserving bloggers to be blessed with this recognition.

So, the five sites the members of this blog have chosen to recognize with the Mathetes award are, drum roll please, ....

1. Michelle over at Rosetta Stone
2. Fr. Martin Fox over at Bonfire of the Vanities
3. Margarette over at Minnesota Mom
4. Bob Catholic over at The BOB CATHOLIC Show
5. Taylor Marshall over at Canterbury Tales

Thanks again.

Thank you! I am honored (and am in very good company, to boot).

PS. I like my name with the extra "t" and "e". It looks very French, and given that I am 100% French Canadian (Go Quebec!) I do not mind at all.
