Hello, everyone,

My newsletter this time will be a short one. I just wanted to inform you of some good news as soon as possible – you can now pay for items on our site using your Amazon account! 

That’s right: when you check out, you can now click on a button that will allow you to log in to Amazon. Two more clicks and you can choose from your Amazon shipping addresses and payment methods; then place your order. Amazon instantly passes the order to us, we fulfill and ship it, and if you have an account with us, you can log in and view your order in your account history and track it as always. Amazon notifies you of your payment. This convenience is perfect for Christmas season shopping. If you prefer, you can always continue to make payments through Paypal.

In a few days, I hope to send my saint post for December: it’s on Bl. Peter of Siena; his feast day is tomorrow, December 4 (though sometimes it’s listed as the 5th or even the 10th). This Franciscan tertiary was a simple artisan /merchant working in Siena’s wool industry, and yet he inspired one of the world’s great Catholic poets in his greatest work: Dante, in his Divine Comedy. This post will be easy, because Bl. Peter is a favorite of mine – and because I wrote an entire paper about him and about Dante in grad school preparing for my Ph.D. and uncovered some fascinating things.

My choice for January is even more fascinating – it involves a Franciscan tertiary and a 700-year-old murder mystery! More about this next month.

Next month I also hope to tell you about my plan to offer e-book versions of some classic works on Franciscan saints and Catholic history. 

Thanks to everyone who offered feedback and comments on my saint posts. It’s been heartening to learn that people are getting some benefit from them. I would be very happy if you could spread the word about the site and what we offer to all your friends. You can just forward them this e-mail, and they can use this convenient link to sign up for the newsletters and posts.

As always, thanks for your support.
