Well, it’s already January 20th, and the good news is, we’re off to a roaring start. New articles, new authors, new topics, new podcasts (soon, soon), and a whole year ahead of us to grow and create and find new and better ways to share the beauty of the Catholic Faith and tradition with our audience.
The bad news is that after a fantastic fundraising round last month, donations are at their absolute lowest level since we started the website.
To date, we’ve raised only $790 this month, out of a goal of $10,000.
I operate on what I like to call the “Matthew 6:33 Principle” – “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” We work hard to fight for God’s Kingdom and His Church every day. I personally consecrate this apostolate to the Immaculate Heart of Mary every morning. I remember it (and all of you) in our family rosary intentions at night.
All I can do is trust that He’ll meet our needs.
But I also know God isn’t a divine ATM. He uses instruments — instruments like you — to make things happen. As I’ve said so many times before, we need your help. We paid bills in December and January without sweating it, and that was the most amazing feeling I’ve had in a year. But the reality of being a small non-profit is back.
Meanwhile, we’ve been clocking between 10,000 and 20,000 visitors a day. This is where the math thing happens: “If everyone who read this today gave just $10…”
It’s true. But not everyone does. So if you can swing it, and want to help us do our work, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution right now.
Thank you as always for your support!
