The Cross & Eagle Awards (C&EA) will be recognizing another legend and this particular blogger is in the field of apologetics.
This defensor fidei travels the country evangelizing both Catholics and non-Catholics alike, educating in the Catholic faith, and defending the eternal Truths.
In my estimation, he probably created his blog with minimal thought, not knowing what a tremendous tool it could be to evangelize.
Imagine not having to travel to another parish hall or hotel to do another presentation in person. Not that he has stopped doing this, it’s that he can now reach a wider audience.
Unfortunately his blog wasn’t one of the best out there.
This all changed recently.
He changed the layout, improved the graphics by leaps and bounds, and made it much more interactive. Yes, he improved the look of his blog overall.
Who is this mustachioed Catholic?
I am happy to present the 2011 Cross & Eagle Award for the Most Improved Blog in the Catholic Blogosphere to. . .
. . .the very knowledgeable Patrick Madrid who writes on his personal blog PatrickMadrid.com!
I wish had a before and after picture, but I don’t. Though the blog he has now all spiffed up and all is quite the looker!
Congratulations on receiving this well-deserved award Patrick!
