In honor of the end of the Cannonball awards Fr. Christian Mathis of Blessed is the Kingdom and Dcn. Sean Smith do a little You Tube talk show on the Cannonball Awards ... and Canon Law.

Fine print: Nominees and winners of the 2011 Catholic Cannonball Awards™© receive no prizes, just the sweet sweet satisfaction that they were only slightly better than no one else really all that special. They reserve bragging rights and the distinction of being fantastical ordinary! Yay! You're an awesome average blogger. Enjoy your victory.

Bragging rights to be displayed on your blog designed by Vincenzo.

I stll do not understand why "Real Catholic TV" is under the category "More Catholic than the Pope".
There is Catholic and then non-Catholic.
Real Catholic TV is Catholic.

Thanks for hosting the awards! It was really fun. I probably wouldn't be saying that if I lost , but seeing as how I only half lost, it was totally fun.

Nobody loves me. Why do I even blog?

Vincenzo said...

Congratulations everyone. The Crescat graciously saved me some time by adding in category text but I was able to finish the badges tonight. Final/alternate versions here: http://www.sanctepater.com/2011/09/2011-catholic-cannonball-awards-winner.html

Well, I am just happy I got NOMINATED.
