Anniversary 2020 Giveaway

Anniversary Celebration Giveaway 2020

Winners are listed in this post. Thank you to all who participated in this giveaway. More giveaways to come. Stay tuned!

I’m celebrating twenty four years as a Catholic this Easter; and right about that time, eleven years as a Catholic blogger, and one year as the owner of Woohoo! I want to share my celebration with you. So for the first time I’m giving away three prizes (see below).

Here’s how to enter: Use the form below (or send me an email with “Anniversary Giveaway 2020” in the subject line, the form already has the subject line included). Entries will be accepted until April 9, 2020, 11:59 pm CDT. I’ll choose the winners at random and announce them on April 15, 2020 at 8:00pm CDT, here on the blog, via email, and on Twitter.

Here are the prizes.

First Prize: Bible and the Church Fathers DVD set from the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology. I’ll be watching during Lent (free streaming with purchase of the workbook, etc. See their page for more about that.) All the videos I’ve seen in the “Bible and” series have been beautifully done. Highly recommended.

Second Prize: Catechism of the Catholic Church Collection (9 vols.) for Verbum Catholic Study Software. Runs on Windows and Mac, and there are apps for iOS and Android. (See system requirements.) I’ve been using Verbum since 2014. Highly recommended. Note: The Verbum Catechism Collection is downloadable software only, the volumes shown are solely for illustration.

Third Prize: Combat Rosary™ in Gun Metal, Silver plated or Antique Bronze, your choice. I don’t have one of these, but I’ve heard good things about them, not least of which is the fact that they are virtually impossible to break. If you carry your rosary with you in your car or your pocket, or toss it into your purse or laptop bag, then you know how important that is. And if ever we needed to pick up our rosaries and wield those spiritual weapons, now would be the time. After all,

Christians are…born for combat.” It is part of their nature to follow Christ by espousing unpopular ideas and by defending the truth at great cost to themselves. One of their main duties is “professing openly and unflinchingly the Catholic doctrine”; a second is “propagating it to the utmost of their power.” –Todd Hartch, The Catholic Thing, 2011.

And all of the prizes in this giveaway are aimed at helping you do just that.

“Christians are…born for combat. whereof the greater the vehemence, the more assured, God aiding, the triumph: ‘Have confidence; I have overcome the world.'”

Encyclical Of Pope Leo Xiii,  On Christians As Citizens

Conditions and Legal Talk: Stuff I have to say and abide by
