Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary and Giveaway Winner

Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary in which the Church celebrates Mary being spared from the stain of Original Sin. It is also a Holy Day of Obligation. I'm not sure how they do it in other countries, but in the U.S. we have gotten lazy, and transfer Holy Days of Obligation to Sunday to make things easier for us. Needless, to say I was pleasantly surprised to see that we didn't transfer this one to Sunday.

Since I was giving away a book for moms, I thought it would be appropriate to pick the winner on one of the important Feast Days of Christ's Mother and ours. There were only 32 entries. Who knew giving away something free would be so hard? I also was going to go to the trouble of cutting up sheets of paper to draw the winner, but Rafflecopter does a random number generator to pick the winner. Isn't technology great? So without further ado, the results are below:

Congratulations to Mary! I have sent you an email to get your mailing address. Also I would like to give a special thanks once again to the people at Catholic Family Gifts for providing me not just a book to review, but one to giveaway as well. They have a great selection of books and other Catholic treasures for you and your whole family. I hope to be able to do more giveaways in the future, but I have no timetable on when or if that will happen.

Well, I'm off to church. Don't forget to go people! Have a blessed day.
