As of today I am an official contributor at Australian Catholic Families! I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful group of bloggers and to be part of such a beautiful ministry for Catholic families.
I do feel, however, that I should
justify explain my involvement considering that I am not Australian, nor have I ever actually set foot upon Australian soil.
It was about a year ago that I “met” Sue Elvis, founder and facilitator of australiancatholicfamilies.com, through the wonderful world of blogging. I first encountered her beautiful home schooling blog and then later discovered her family blog, as well. Over the course of the last 12 months (or so) I have been repeatedly inspired and encouraged by Sue’s writing. When she asked me to be a part of Australian Catholic Families, I was thrilled.
The fact that Australian Catholic Families, though obviously originally intended for Australian families, is now expanding to include bloggers from around the globe is such a beautiful testament to the marks of our Catholic faith. We are one, holy, catholic and apostolic. We are a universal Church, not an American Church or an Australian Church but one church. We are united in our creed, united under our Holy Father, united in our Liturgy, and united in our mission to build up the Body of Christ in the world. All Catholic families, no matter their location or address, are a part of the same Body of Christ. We are all called to evangelize to others, as well as to support and pray for one another. The Australian Catholic Families blog is doing just that- uniting, evangelizing, and supporting. And I am truly honored to be a part of it. Please be sure to check it out to "meet" all the talented writers and to enjoy their wonderful faith-filled stories.
