A Valentine's Gift for your Favorite Military Wife

If you have taken a look at my bookshelf in the sidebar you may have noticed the book Chicken Soup for the Military Wife's Soul. I have a couple of essays included in this book. The profits from the book sales go to the militarysoul.org foundation. They sent this press release yesterday and I am happy to pass it along:

January 30, 2008. The #1 Valentines Day gift for Military Wives is a personalized, autographed copy of the book sure to touch her heart.

The well-received book, Chicken Soup for the Military Wife’s Soul, has often been suggested as the standard issue for military spouses. Autographed copies are available exclusively via the co-author’s MilitarySoul Foundation web site at: www.militarysoul.org. It is a 501c(3) non-profit and all proceeds go back to the military community. The book is also in military exchanges and bookstores around the world or order online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and numerous other sites

This book acknowledges, inspires and entertains the military wives who are serving as active duty members or supportive spouses. It celebrates the courageous women who raise families, maintain homes and uphold the most positive attitudes when facing the fears of losing a loved one. It shares the pride, emotion and triumphs achieved by past and present military wives everywhere.

The stories in Chicken Soup for the Military Wife’s Soul focus on the often-overlooked women that are a vital part our military team. In light of the on- going world situation it is more important then ever to recognize these heroines by compiling their stories for all to read.

An autographed copy of Chicken Soup for the Military Wife’s Soul will be a treasured Valentine’s Day gift.

Parent Letter from a Catechist

I am going to be teaching seventh grade CCD this year. We do most of the preparation for confirmation during this year since Confirmation is usually scheduled for the fall of the eighth grade year.I have composed a letter to the parents to try and keep them active in their children's religious education. I thought I would post it here and get your feedback before I send it out in a couple of weeks.

You show how important your Faith is by making Mass attendance a top priority and by family prayer.

Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation. It is a beginning. It is not a graduation. This year we will work to solidify the foundation of your child’s Catholic Faith.…

Dispelling the Myth of the Travel Dispensation

One of the most read posts from my two years of blogging is this one that discusses finding Mass while traveling. I would like to think this post is so popular because it is so well written. The truth of the matter is that it generates so much traffic because I use the words “travel dispensation for Mass”—as in “There is no such thing as a travel dispensation for Mass.” I would guess that nearly a dozen times every week, someone googles “travel dispensation for Mass” and finds my blog. I wonder how many of these folks are poor souls trying to assuage their Catholic guilt with evidence of a justification for missing Mass while on the road.

I know that when I tell my seventh grade CCD students that attending Mass every Sunday is a commandment (one of the top ten!) and not just a pretty good idea they are amazed. Missing Mass has become so …

United Breaks Guitars

This guy is really talented and what a creative way to get your message across. I think he captured the "indifferent employee" perfectly. They don't just work for airlines. I think I ran into them at Walmart on Friday!
