Catholic Fire has won a wonderful prize, courtesy of ALL: accommodations for 2 nights and 3 days at the Washington Court Hotel in downtown DC during the March for Life!

Awards will be given on January 21 in DC. Details are forthcoming. I'm honored to be the emcee!

Their topic: "How to host a winning pro-life blog," of course! More details forthcoming soon on that event, too.

Congratulations again to the Pro-Life Blog Award winners, and thanks to ALL for encouraging pro-life blogging by honoring its best and brightest.


Congratulations to Jean Heimann at Catholic Fire and all the pro-life bloggers who won awards. Jean has a great quote by St. Catherine of Sienna at the top of her blog:

"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire. Let the truth be your delight...proclaim it...but with a certain congeniality.

How difficult that can be sometimes... Thanks for the reminder, Jean.

I wonder if ALL noticed the irony in two of its winners. One blog winner is greatly feuding with the another. Had to laugh.

Posted by: LOL at December 21, 2009 5:54 PM

Well, one is feuding, anyway. Looks like the other is thankfully more interested in pro-life work than sinking into pettiness. Good for them!

Posted by: Ally at December 21, 2009 6:53 PM

I'm rather new to the pro-life blogging community. Who's feuding with whom, and why?

Gerard, LOL is a pro-choice troll, but are you sure you want to get into all the fuss? ;-)

Congratulations to all the winners of the Pro-Life Awards.

Congratulations to the winners!

(*sigh*) I'm still hoping that Chelsea Zimmerman gets her due accolades, someday...

Posted by: Paladin at December 22, 2009 7:33 AM

Gerard, I don't even know who's feuding. Better off ignorant sometimes... :)
