I nominate Cleansing Fire for Best New Kid on the Block. They've only been around for about 9 months or so. They focus on litrugical abuse in the Diocese of Rochester, but a lot of their stuff rings true, no matter what it pertains to.

God bless them!

Mike said...

Cleansing Fire (http://cleansingfiredor.blogspot.com/) for "More Catholic Than the Pope", "Best Armchair Theologian", "Best Visual Treat", and of course, "Best New Kid on the Block."

I have quickly become a huge fan of this blog. They have it all: news, commentary, expose liturgical abuses, humor, original YouTube comedy videos, etc. The blog has only been around like 8 or so months, and they already have over 300 daily readers.

As for best blog by a heretic, Toward a Progressive Catholic Church (http://grosswirth.blogspot.com/) by "Married Priest From Rochester, NY" Ray Grosswirth.

Best Spiritual Treat: Conversion Diary

Also a correction - Father Longenecker's blog is "Standing on My Head" (one of my favorites; "Looking Upside Down" may have been an older name)

(...also, a hopeful request - my humble blog (Convert Journal) is too young for this contest, but perhaps could be considered for your extensive blogroll?)

Mrs. C (Carleigh Bedell) said...

Okay, since all the ones I wanted to nominate appear to be nominated already, I'll add this, just in case you didn't give it to him last year or the year before (which you prolly did):

http://www.cantemusdomino.net/ "The Recovering Choir Director" for "More Catholic Than the Pope" and for "Best Spiritual Treat" for his videos.

I wish there was a catagory for "Favorite American patriot" as there seems to be so few of them in the real world. If there were such a catagory I would nominate Adrienne over at....http://adriennescatholiccorner.blogspot.com/

I think there's a difference between having a political blog and being a loyal American. Being loyal is more importiant to me afterall anyone can say any stupid thing about politics and have a political blog but I think a well placed heart- a loyal heart deserves an award. This award would clearly define what kind of a political blog one has.

This blog by Fr Mark is absolutely the BEST by any religious....I get some inspiration from it every time I go there & he's not just phoning it in. You can tell he puts alot of thought in to it.

Big Fan said...

Fr. Blake's blog from Brighton UK, http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/
not only are the articles pertinent to the matters of the day, profound and insightful, but the comment box has the best group of followers with interesting comments! Thought provoking discussions...One of my favorites.

Fr. Christian Mathis said...

I nominate Whosoever Desires for Best Blog by a Religious...other than Fr. Z

http://whosoeverdesires.wordpress.com/

In this case it is more than one religious, but an excellent blog nonetheless.

belinda said...

Dear Miss Kat,
Cathy of Alex nominated me for best crazy blog a while back. I wasn't going to say anything but I was wondering if you would mind including me as I have already made an ass out of myself by bragging to my husband and grown children about the nomination. As a homemaker to 8 people I clean toilets, and kids faces for a living and any feelings of self worth have long left me. Naturally only a fool would expect to win against such worthy competitors however it made my day that someone felt as though my blog was top rate-(hahaha) if even for a moment. Perhaps my family could consider me as more than just a maid servant.. Thank you , God bless you Belinda ;)
