Lots of Cool Catholic Blogs All in One Place! ~ Catholic Crafts and more!

I just came across another Catholic Blogs Link Up and I wanted to put it on my blog for my personal reference and to help readers of my blog find other Catholic blogs.

If you aren't familiar with Blog Link Ups it's just a page where others can link up their blog titles so alot of blogs can be easily found in one spot in blog land. But besides the fact that it is convenient to find blogs of similar interest in one place, it also makes the (blog) world a smaller place and can build a "virtual community."  There are millions of blogs in the blogoshere covering a wide range of topics  so it's nice to "meet" others with "About" pages like your own.  So go HERE to find other Catholic blogs you may want to visit. Just click on their blog title under their blog's button. My blog is linked up in the 49th spot.  Enjoy your visits! ~ Catholic Crafts and more!
Catholic Blogs Link Up was started by Jennifer, a Catholic homeschool mom with 9 children.  Jennifer is quite crafty with Catholic crafts!  (Say that over and over again!) :) She posts "the God-inspired faith-centered crafts and activities that she creates with her kids" over at Crafolic.  Her products are amazing! She is so talented and very busy too!  You can see the products she sells at her Crafolic Store HERE.  

Catholic Bloggers Network
Another great Catholic blog community in blog/Facebook land that I have been a part of for a little while now is Catholic Bloggers Network. With almost 300 Catholic blogs already linked up (my blog is in the 4th spot at the top), there is something for everyone on this page as readers visit and comment on the many blogs listed.  On the About Us page it states this about the network: 

"Saint Padre Pio Catholic Bloggers Network" is a Facebook group for bloggers to communicate and join in on unified initiatives. After the First International Meeting of Bloggers in August, 2011, with Pope Benedict XVI, this unified front was inspired. This group was created for better communication among bloggers and also to create a webpage directory of Catholic bloggers or a web portal of those interested in networking.

With the New Evangelization, "The Church has the duty to announce the Gospel of Jesus Christ always and everywhere." Our motto is: "The greatest charity is to take away souls from Satan and to bring them back to God!" ~ Saint Padre Pio

Together we can make a difference on the world wide web! Let's remind the world, via our presence in Catholic Social Media, that God exists and to educate them about the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church!

One of the founders of Catholic Bloggers Network is Monica over at Arma Dei: Equipping Catholic Families.   Monica has so many great and creative resources that she designed to teach our Catholic faith to our children and families.   I'm always impressed by her creativity and products and I enjoyed reviewing one of them called Color Me Catholic: New Roman Missal Edition craft kit.

You can find my review HERE.  You can also find all Monica's products at her Arma Dei Shoppe HERE.   

I close this post with some of Pope John Paul II's wisdom and insights as he highlighted the need for evangelization through the media when he stated...
"For the new evangelization to be effective, it is essential to have a deep understanding of the culture of our time in which the social communications media are most influential. Therefore, knowledge and use of the media, whether the more traditional forms or those which technology has produced in recent times, is indispensable. Contemporary reality demands a capacity to learn the language, nature and characteristics of mass media. Using the media correctly and competently can lead to a genuine inculturation of the Gospel. At the same time, the media also help to shape the culture and mentality of people today, which is why there must be special pastoral activity aimed at those working in the media (EA 72)."  Source: Apothegm Blog
