“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine
Because I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, each week I give away some absolutely free, no strings attached.
Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning every Friday. You can enter any time during the week. Check out the past giveaways here.
This week’s giveaway is sponsored by the well-known and highly-valued apostolate, Lighthouse Catholic Media. Lighthouse is answering the Holy Father’s call to the New Evangelization by distributing inspiring talks, books, booklets, and pamphlets to help teach and spread the Catholic Faith. They feature the best Catholic speakers in the world including people like:
- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
- Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen
- Cardinal Timothy Dolan
- Fr. Robert Barron
- Fr. Larry Richards
- Dr. Scott & Kimberly Hahn
- Fr. Michael Gaitley
- Johnette Benkovic
- Jeff Cavins
- Steve Ray
- Matthew Kelly
You’ve probably seen the Lighthouse CDs in the back of your church, or maybe you’ve heard of their CD of the Month Club. Their goal is to provide great resources that help Catholics learn their faith and make it easy to share it with others.
In addition to the parish program, the Lighthouse talks are available in several other formats. First, there’s the Catholic CD of the Month Club where brand new CD titles are shipped to you every month. There’s also the Download of the Month club for those who prefer MP3. Then there’s the Truth Be Told Download of the Month Club with talks geared toward teens and young adults. I’ve subscribed to this one since it began and have really enjoyed the talks.
In addition, Lighthouse offers a Military Download of the Month Club which is FREE for all those serving in the military. If you or someone you know serves in the military, click here for more information.
Lighthouse isn’t just about CDs and books, however. This fall, they teamed up with the Truth & Life Dramatized Bible to bring you the FREE Truth & Life Bible app. The app gives you:
- FREE – Full text of the Catholic Bible (RSV-CE), Old and New Testaments
- FREE – Audio of the Gospel of John from the Truth & Life Bible
- FREE – Over 12 hours of audio biblical commentary from Dr. Scott Hahn and the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
- $20 – Complete dramatized Truth & Life audio New Testament
- Ability to purchase and download over 50 Lighthouse talks, delivered straight to your mobile device
Click here to learn more about the app, and when you download it, be sure to use the promo code 101950 to receive a free talk.
This Christmas, Lighthouse is working with parishes to give away a CD or book to every visitor at Mass. The Christmas giveaway program has been used across the country very successfully.
If you’d like to bring Lighthouse’s materials to your parish, or get involved with them as a volunteer or account manager, please contact Julie Musselman at [email protected]
