Barbara at Praying For Grace has nominated me for the Mathetes Award for Excellence in Discipleship. I am truly touched and humbled. To be considered an "excellent disciple" by this lovely, faith-filled woman is a weighty matter. God grant me the grace to remain worthy and the humility to realize that there are many more worthy than I. Thank you Barb, for your good example and for providing encouragement for other Catholic mothers.
Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. So the rules for accepting the award are such: Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to, and provide links for (1) the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God), (2) the person that awarded it to you, and then (3) name and sites of the five people that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ.
Alas...only five. There are so many deserving disciples. Here are some who encourage me, daily:
Elena Maria Vidal at Tea at Trianon
Allison at Totus Tuus Family
Ken at Hallowed Ground
Leticia at Causa Nostrae Laetitiae
PJP and the gang at Recapturing Our Catholic Patrimony
Thank you all, for your excellent example. God's blessings upon you!
