Seems like most Catholic bloggers/writers online are converts.
Their websites and blogs seem to be the ones which ask for support, donations, and so on. Nothing wrong with that, but it strikes me as a 'Protestant' thing. Not that Catholics do not look for donations and stipends - but I have usually associated Catholic fundraising with the collection plate, fundraising drives, stipends, offerings, and so on.
I'm not accustomed to Catholic laity earning their living from proselytism or evangelizing - or spiritual direction as a business. (Generalization alert.) I think that is definitely more common among Protestants - since several sects have neither priests, liturgy or sacraments - other than Baptism and some form of Eucharist - laity take on teaching and preaching roles. Catholics were more accustomed to those roles being filled by clergy and religious, who lived consecrated lives, vowed to poverty, and so on. Catholic laity witnessed more quietly by fidelity to their faith and the duties of their state in life, 'earning their living quietly' as the Apostle counseled.
My dad's mother was married to a tent preacher once, and according to my mother, they traveled around the mid-west to conduct their own revival meetings. Grandma played the tambourine and passed the collection plate... I was told they made a pretty good living. Seriously.
It seems to me Catholics are more accustomed
to donate to the poor and needy.
