Dear Friends,

It has been an amazing year. As this map shows, we have had readers visit our site from 177 countries across the globe! In fact, we have had thousands of Catholics from around the world spend thousands of hours absorbing faithful Catholic resources on prayer and the spiritual life.

There’s more good news:

  • We now have non-profit status so all donations are tax deductible.
  • A few generous souls donated $38,000 toward the completion of The Better Part projects:
    1. Reprint The Better Part
    2. Launch the development of a The Better Part iPhone Application
    3. Launch the project to get The Better Part available on Kindle
  • We now have more than 1,800 email subscribers who receive daily/weekly updates on new posts.

Moving forward, what more can we do? There is so much more. Here are ways you can help:

  • Send free gift subscriptions to your friends – this is an easy way to bless others with a regular dose of spiritual support.
  • Help us with any kind of donation. We particularly appreciate small monthly commitments.
  • Pray for our readers as you watch them light up every day on our visitor map.

Regardless of how you are able to help us to serve you and others in the spiritual life, we are eternally grateful as are those who will benefit from your generosity across the world!

Many blessings to you and yours in the coming new year.

Seek Him – Find Him – Follow Him
