Listers, Father Z at WDTPRS has made an excellent proposal: The USCCB should host a conference of Catholic bloggers – much like the Vatican did – to bolster the ranks and garner us into a solid front of many.
St. Peter’s List gladly throws its voice and website behind Father Z’s excellent idea and hopes and prays the USCCB can respond in some meaningful and fecund manner.
Okay, let’s double-down.
I, in turn, call upon the U.S. Bishops to do what the Holy See did: host a conference… call a meeting with bloggers.
I ask fellow Catholic bloggers to pick up and renew this proposal on their own blogs. Propose that the bishops organize a blogger summit, a blogger confab, a blogger powwow, a blognic on steroids.
Do they mean it, or not? Are Catholic bloggers valued, or not? Are these just words? Vapor?
