We're also announcing a very, very special promotion from Easter Wednesday to Pentecost so please tell your friends. Anyone who signs up for an ANNUAL PASSPORT will receive FREE the full trilogy set of the Meditative Lessons of the Rosary: COME, LET US ADORE HIM - on the Joyful Mysteries, IT IS CONSUMMATED! - on the Sorrowful Mysteries, and MY LORD AND MY GOD - on the Glorious Mysteries. Each book is over 100 pages with inspirational Meditative Lessons encompassing the Mysteries and more. They retail for $9 each and the full set goes for $25. That's over 300 pages worth of edifying and contemplative reading that you'll want to share with friends. And we want to share it with our friends - our subscribers. Thus, to show our gratitude for the phenomenal growth of the Daily CATHOLIC over the last several months and to enhance subscriptions, we are offering the FULL TRILOGY SET FREE with an ANNUAL PASSPORT. That's a phenomenal offer and people may think we're crazy, but it's our way of saying thank you and giving back something to those who support this apostolate. For current subscribers who have already paid and would like to receive this very special offer, we'll be happy to send you the trilogy of books if you e-mail us by Easter Wednesday - April 15, 1998 with your full address and password. You will not need to add the $3. That's our way of saying thank you! For new subscribers in the United States and U.S. Territories add $3.00 for shipping and handling and you'll receive the books by Priority Mail. If one deducts the $25 from $36 it would mean one can receive an ANNUAL PASSPORT for only $11. a year!!! That's well-under a nickel an issue, especially when you factor in the back issues and prorate your annual subscription it comes to 400 issues for $11. That's two and three quarters cents an issue. It's been decades since anyone has offered anything like that. In fact, we'd venture to say no one has ever offered a daily publication for that low a price! Unfortunately it's a little higher for Canada, all foreign countries, and overseas, because the costs of sending Global Priority is much higher so add $10 to the offer. We'd like to make it less, but U.S. Postal regulations dictate that the costs range from $7.50 to $12. for overseas. However, once they have a chance to read these inspiring books, our oversees subscribers will realize it is well-worth the additional ten dollars. The sign-up forms will reflect these offers and mailing prices beginning Easter Wednesday. This is a tremendous offer that few can pass up. We thank you all for helping the Daily CATHOLIC grow so quickly and ask for your help in passing the word, letting others know of this very, very special offer.
Many consider Christmas the time of gift-giving, but we are making this gift offer because we truly believe this time of year at Easter is the greatest Gift-giving of all. Afterall, Jesus gave us Himself in the Holy Eucharist - a Gift that keeps on giving in graces day after day after day; He gave us the opportunity to be with Him forever in Heaven by being the Lamb immolated on the Cross; and He gave us everlasting hope for Eternal Life by rising to destroy death. In this special time of trilogies, no greater Gift could anyone receive!
