  • PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

    We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.

    Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.

    You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.

    Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.

    You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.

    Amen.

    Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I accept this award with humility and gratitude.

Thank you BILTRIX for nominating 1catholicsalmon for the ‘Very Inspiring Blog Award’. I admit to feeling a little nervous accepting this award, but also very satisfied that the powers that be at BILTRIX deem this blog to be inspirational. There is much  value added to the receipt of the award simply because it’s been offered from a blog with authors who wear the white collar! Somehow there’s added meaning to it.


Award Guidelines:

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • State 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers  for this award and link to them. (as my blog selection is not very wide, I will find this guideline difficult to fulfil, but I’ll do my best!)
  • Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

7 things about myself:

  1. I want the experience of painting an Icon.
  2. I find small-talk difficult.
  3. I laugh at slap-stick comedy
  4. I hate hearing anyone crunch nearby.
  5. I enjoy debates and discussion
  6. I am forthright and honest
  7. I love Mediterranean food

The 1catholicsalmon nominations for the very inspiring blogger awards are:

  1. Steve Gershomhttp://www.stevegershom.com/ He’s Catholic, Gay, and feeling fine, thanks! An amazing blog that moves me every time I read it.
  2. Transformed in Christ @ http://transformedinchrist.wordpress.com/ a catechetical blog, with loads of useful information.
  3. iBenedictines @  http://www.ibenedictines.org/ This is a blog written by Benedictine nuns from Holy Trinity Monastery, formerly of East Hendred, now at Howton Grove Priory, U.K. They prefer to call themselves cloistered rather than enclosed because the word ‘enclosed’ may suggest a closed mind. They have a special interest in using contemporary technology to reach out to people who would never otherwise come to the monastery.
  4. The Philosopher Mom @ http://philosophermoms.blogspot.co.uk/  Gems can be unearthed at this blog.
  5. Aliens in this world@ http://suburbanbanshee.wordpress.com/ Inspirational posts galore!
  6. Happy Catholic@http://happycatholic.blogspot.co.uk/  Great.
  7. Salvation history@ http://www.salvationhistory.com/ Can’t be matched.

  1. Great choices for conferring the award! I too would love to have the experience of paining and icon, but I have not picked up a paintbrush since art class in high school — and I won’t say how long ago that was.

    Since you are interested in Icons, I was wondering if you were familiar with these sites (I’m not adding the hyperlinks here, so as to avoid the danger of infamous spam): Reinkat and Frangelico Institute for the Sacred Arts. The latter did an excellent post on an intensive course in iconography, recently reblogged by Reinkat. Definitely worth checking out if you are interested.

    Congrats on the award! Keep on inspiring us with your blog, 1CS!
