Giveaway Month, week three!

Now that prizes from the first week's Blogiversary Giveaway have been claimed and mailed, it's time for the next round.

To win, make a comment below. Include in your comment which item you want should your name be chosen as a winner. You may include a second or third choice if you want to.

My plan is to pick a bunch of winners, since I'd like to clear these items off my desk:

The Rosary -keeping company with Jesus and Mary by Karen Edmisten. Short motivational guide to praying the rosary. Good for beginners who want to know what it's all about as well as veterans who need fresh inspiration to maintain their rosary habit.

Shorter Christian Prayer - (slightly used but good condition) a breviary consisting of only  the four week psalter for lauds and vespers plus limited selections from the  propers for Advent, Lent, and Easter, the Holy Triduum, and a couple of feastdays. A good introduction for people who is 1. not sure they really want to  do this and/or 2. intimidated by the size of the regular book.

Daytime Prayer -(slightly used but good condition) a slim volume containing the complete hour of Daytime Prayer for every day of the year. About the same size as Shorter Christian Prayer.  The regular one-volume breviary only contains selections from Daytime Prayer, so if you are interested in having the Real Deal this is the book for you. I kept it in my desk at work for the last year at my day job, since I didn't want to lug the book from my 4-volume set around.

Holy Traders- Apostles and Evangelists edition. Saints trading cards for kids.

Patron Saints - a list of patrons for every possible profession, situation, person, place, things, illness, and crisis. by Thomas J. Craughwell.

The Mass-the Glory, the Mystery, the Tradition by Cardinal Donald Wuerl and Mike Aquilina. Step by step through the liturgy, with insights on history, theology, and spirituality.

Strengthening Your Family - by Marge Fenelon. Subtitled "A Catholic Approach to Holiness at Home", this is a collection of winsome essays plus prayers and questions for reflection on various topics.

Inner Peace -Wisdom from Jean-Pierre de Caussade - a small book of excerpts from a spiritual master, on the topic of trust in God and learning to rest in His will.
