Adopt a Catholic Blog in Prayer

I originally published this in September 2008, but I decided to make it a sticky and leave it on the main page for a bit in December 2008. Then it drifted again off the main page and now Blogger has the Pages feature so this project now has a page. Sadly no one has adopted another blog in prayer for a while, I encourage anyone reading this to add themselves as adopting another Catholic blogger. Just add a comment at the bottom with who you are and which blog you are adopting.


I came up with an idea this morning of adopting a blog. I thought about it for a while and came to the conclusion that this sort of thing should start within St Blog's Parish before it moved out into the greater blogosphere.
By adopting you would keep the author(s) in your prayers and link to their site on your sidebar (if you have a site). But you would also read their blog with some frequency, maybe blog on one of their posts, and comment on his or her blog as you see fit.
Here's the basic ground rules:
1) You pick a blog and leave a comment under this post marking which blog you adopted. I am not going to assign the blogs out. I think we can do this for ourselves.
2) If someone has already taken that blog please move on and find another one there are plenty out there. I know everyone wants to adopt the Curt Jester, but lesser known bloggers need your prayers too. That's not to say that that you can't still pray for Jeff at the Curt Jester on top of your adopted blogger.
3) Tell other bloggers in St Blog's Parish. I have a lesser known blog and I don't have the visibility of the Curt Jester or American Papist.

  8 blogs already adopted:

Ok, so I have been remiss. I have not lead from the front on this effort. I was slow in adopting and others have beat me to it. I will correct that now and adopt Faith and Country

I need to think about this. The idea is great and I'd like somebody to adopt me! I will post again to announce the blog I have adopted. Just now, though I have to get off to the 2:30 Mass and I need more time. Thanks for doing this.
