I love receiving book orders from Tan Publishers, and today I received several books; two copies of Attaining Salvation by St Alphonsus Liquori; The Great Magdalens (Famous Women Who Returned to God after Lives of Sin) by Msgr. Hugh Francis Blunt; and two copies of the 2009 Saints Calendar and Daily Planner.
Why two copies of some books you wonder? Well, part of the reason I have this blog is to give away spiritual readings and other opportunities to my readers. If you follow Salve Regina, you will know that I regularly send Catholic books to readers, often after running a contest of some sort. I also have Masses said for readers who send me their names, and sometimes even for other bloggers who I am in contact with.
Here's what I am doing with the extra copies of these two books. I am giving one copy of Attaining Salvation to my sister Shirley from the blog Seeking Jesus (one of the best spiritual blogs on my blogroll), and the copy of the Daily Saints Planner is up for grabs. If you are a student or are otherwise in need of a daily planner that will help to keep you focused on the liturgical year as you go about your busy life, leave a comment below or email me. I will choose someone to send it to within a week.
And if you are in the need of sacramentals to adorn your home and elevate your heart and mind to prayer, don't forget about this giveaway.
