The New Leather Hardbound Edition is Here!

Ok. I know A LOT of you have been emailing me over the past 2 months asking "when is the hardbound collection coming out?"

I'm happy to finally announce that it is here! We're planning on launching the hardbound edition of the collection sometime during the week of January 22nd to January 26th, so check back often for more information.

As always, we're sure to also have some Free bonuses for you. It's just our way of saying "Thanks."

In fact, there's a Free bonus waiting in your Inbox right now if you just joined the Leather-Bound Collection list.

Hardbound Books are coming!!!!

After dancing around with a couple of binderies that tried to change their pricing on us at the last minute, we finally have the hardbound versions of the Essential Classics of Catholic Spirituality collection underway!

If you pre-ordered the 2-for-1 deal will get your 2 volumes first as soon as they arrive (it looks like about 6 weeks).

If you didn't pre-order you lost out on a great opportunity to save, but you can still get the hardbound collection at a substantial discount.

We'll send you an email when we're ready to launch the hardbound version of the collection. So stay tuned!!!!

Initial Donation Report

Joe and I spent the weekend going through the numbers. Although there are a couple expenses we're still accounting for, we figured at a minimum we will be donating $6,057 to Pro-Life charities from the Essential Classics of Catholic Spirituality launch.

We think that's AWESOME!

If you participated in the Essential Classics launch, thank you very, very much.

If you did NOT, then you should sign up to be on the "early bird" list for the re-launch so you won't miss out a second time. Here's the link:

God bless and thanks to everyone that helped us give these charities an extra Merry Christmas!

It's finished

Whew! The launch is now over and Joe and I are STILL sorting through all of the orders to get everything finalized. (Here's a good idea of what Joe's desk looks like right now). We'll work over the weekend to get the final tallies out to you next week.

But the bottom line is that it was a HUGE success. Thank you because together we accomplished alot. Now it's time to relax and enjoy your Classics collection. Advent's just around the corner and I know I'm going to start off with a re-reading of (who else) St. Augustine.

For those who missed out on the launch: I'm sorry. We tried to give you as much advanced warning of the deadline as possible (some would complain that we sent TOO MANY emails on that subject). The next best thing is to sign up for the "early bird" list so you'll know first when the electronic AND hardbound collections will be made available again.

Go to this link to sign up:

For those who pre-ordered the first two hardbound volumes: We are putting those together as we speak and will make them available to you first. We'll be sure to post an update here as well as send you an email on the matter before we ship them to you.

For those who ordered in time for the Fr. Trigilio teleseminar bonus: As of this writing, Father says he can make some time either in the early part of January or later in that month. We'll match up his schedule with ours and nail down a final date for you. We will notify each of you by email after we sort through the orders this weekend to let you know if you made the Bonus #1 cut.

That's it for now. Thanks again and I sincerely hope the Classics we put together are a tremendous help for you in the coming liturgical seasons. Please feel free to email us and let us know how you're enjoying them.

God bless!!

A few member questions

Here are a few questions we've received from a number of members. We thought it would be easier to just set up this "FAQ" in case others have the same questions.

To check out info on the Essential Classics collection. Go to this link:

Q: Gentlemen: I’m thinking seriously about purchasing this – I like the idea of having it on the computer rather than in book format – but given that it’s ten volumes, I’m concerned that it may take up excessive space on my hard drive. How much space would it take up?

Answer: about 10MB (10.7MB to be exact) for the entire collection

Q: The links wouldn't open for me and I asked for help. Didn't want to miss out on the chance to order. The link Patte emailed worked and I've placed my order. Thank you so much -- for the collection, and for your help! God bless you!!!!

Answer: Ok, that's not really a question. But the point is if you have trouble with anything, email us at

Q: How do I know if i was in the first 100 for the teleconference?

Answer: All who made it before the quota was filled will be emailed later in the week.

Q: Is the information avaliable for Canadians? The ordering page looks like it's for US customers only.

Answer: We can receive orders from any country in the world. I've noticed that many of those who've purchased already are from outside the U.S.

Bonus #1 almost gone

A quick update. . .

It is tough keeping a handle on the numbers -- things are just moving a bit too fast right now -- but we are getting really close to selling out the first 100 copies of the collection.

That, of course, means that the bonus follow-up teleseminar with Fr. Trigilio will be sold out soon. Only the first 100 buyers will get in on the teleseminar (this is because we only have 100 lines available).

If you get to the web page and the teleseminar bonus does NOT have "sold out" by it, then it is still available. Once the 100 spots are gone, we will note it on the web page by placing "sold out" next to it. You can check here:

It looks like it will probably be sold out overnight and I'll try to update the page as soon as possible. Your best bet is to place your order for the Essential Classics collection tonight. Here is the link again:

God bless!

It's finally here!

Just a super-quick note.

The Essential Classics of Catholic Spirituality is now available. You can check it out at this link:

WARNING: It's a pretty long page. We tried to keep it short, but describing all the components of the collection took a lot of space.

God bless!
