Win, celebrate, win, celebrate, win!

My Mom is in the center. Her Mom is on the left.
I love to celebrate Moms and GrandMoms. They have always been the unsung heroes to their families, working hard in a sometimes thankless job of raising little saints to heaven.

I'm excited that my new TV series for Catholic Moms will launch soon and I'm praying that it will help to encourage and guide Moms and GrandMoms and all care-givers of children in their holy vocations.

Starting October 1st and all throughout the month of October, you will have the opportunity to win copies of my books and other fun and exciting prizes the week of the TV series launch.

Every Wednesday during the month of October starting with October 1st, three lucky winners will win a copy of my book Catholic Mom's Cafe: 5-Minute Retreats for Every Day of the Year by simply leaving a comment which will be entered into a drawing.

Every Friday during October one lucky winner will win a special bundle of books (that's every Friday)!

During the first week of November which is during the launch of the series, there will be opportunities to win gift certificates to some exciting gifts by answering a question about the series. I'll post about that as we get closer to the launch.

My wonderful Mom and me.
Please help me to celebrate Catholic Moms and GrandMoms everywhere! Please help me to spread the word about the contests and the new series launching soon!

Here's more information about the series including a radio segment and here is more information as well.

Don't forget to stop back here on October 1st to enter the contest to win a copy of my book Catholic Mom's Cafe.

AND,  if that's not enough, thanks to Our Sunday Visitor Publishing Company here's a special offer to purchase Catholic Mom's Cafe for $5.00 off each copy until the end of October (Christmas is coming!).

Take good care and God bless!

In honor of Mother Teresa on her 104th birthday today!



Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go.
Flood my soul with Your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly,
That my life may only be a radiance of Yours.

Shine through me, and be so in me
That every soul I come in contact with
May feel Your presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus!

Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine,
So to shine as to be a light to others;
The light, O Jesus will be all from You; none of it will be mine;
It will be you, shining on others through me.

Let me thus praise You the way You love best, by shining on those around me.
Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example,
By the catching force of the sympathetic influence of what I do,
The evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You.

Amen.
[by Cardinal John Henry Neuman and prayed constantly by Mother Teresa]

Meeting the Purgatory Lady!

I loved meeting Susan Tassone and sitting beside her at a recent book signing at the Catholic Marketing Network this past week in Chicago. I was signing copies of my Catholic Saints Prayer Book and Susan was signing Prayers, Promises, and Devotions for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. 



Susan is affectionately known as the "Purgatory Lady."

Here's a You tube of her appearance on EWTN's Bookmark show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxXQxjB5aw0

Enjoy!
