Well, this may be my last chance to post before Catholic Connection on Thursday at 9:30 a.m., so I thought I'd take a moment to put together a quick "hello" to welcome those who are logging on to this site for the first time, in response to hearing about us on the radio. Didn't get a chance to listen in? Catch the show in the CC archives ... here's the link!
Welcome ... and hello!
(If you're listening now, and trying to remember what number to call to get on the air with us, here it is: 877-573-7825.) Thanks in advance to all you wonderful readers and contributers who made a point of supporting me in my half-hour of need.
OK, were you intrigued by my description of Canticle, but wanting a little more information?
Would you like to know what a "canticle" is? Click here. Want to check out a sample copy of the magazine? Here's the link. Would you like to see our writer's guidelines? Our theme list? OK ... now that you've seen all that, are you ready to order? Good, I thought so ... here's the link for that.
As I'm sure I said on the radio (I'm typing this ahead of time, but I feel this so strongly I can't imagine not saying this), Canticle is the best magazine for faithful, thoughtful Catholic women on the market today. And the reason for that is simple: our writers. Whether married or religious, widowed or otherwise unmarried, they write deeply, profoundly, and fearlessly. They are seasoned women of faith who have faced everything from infertility to eating disorders to disorderly husbands to debilitating diseases to the untimely deaths of loved ones to their own mortality ... all with grace. And though I will never become rich at the work I do, my life has been immeasurably enriched because of it ... and for that I have you to thank, my friends.
Today I also want to say a special thank you to Lisa Hendey of CatholicMom.com, who continues to be an inspiration and support to me personally and professionally, and who was kind enough to promote the show on her blog and website. Thanks, Lisa! And thanks to all you CM ladies who continue to write for Canticle!
