But upon my return I resumed work on the series, and I am pleased to report that over the past week and ending last night my west coast sound engineer and CD producer Carlo Dimesio and I completed the recording of all 12 CDs. An initial "press run" of 100
Great news! As I had explained in a previous post to this website, my recent lecture tours through the Midwest (in October) and New England (in November) had forced me to temporarily set aside -- when I was halfway through it -- my work on our latest project, the 12-CD set entitled "Victory Through Virtue," based on the pre-Vatican II Redemptorist priest Fr. Donald F. Miller's classic, comprehensive (40 double-column pages!) Examination of Conscience for Adults.
But upon my return I resumed work on the series, and I am pleased to report that last week my west coast sound engineer and CD producer Carlo Dimesio and I completed the recording of all 12 CDs.
An initial "press run" of 100 copies of each of the first several discs is already in my hands, and as soon as Carlo completes the final editing, copying, and printing of the remaining CDs he'll be shipping them to me over the next week or so.
Here are the set's individual CD titles:
Exercise 1: Grow Your Faith
Exercise 2: Strengthen Your Hope
Exercise 3: Deepen Your Love for God
Exercise 4: Heighten Your Reverence for God
Exercise 5: Learn to Love Others, Part One: Avoiding Evil
Exercise 6: Learn to Love Others, Part Two: Doing Good
Exercise 7: Defend Justice
Exercise 8: Embrace Chastity
Exercise 9: Embody Temperance
Exercise 10: Master Obedience
Exercise 11: Cultivate Meekness
Exercise 12: Ground Your Humility
We want to get this important new CD set to you as soon as possible. That way you can listen to it, if you wish, during the penitential season of Advent, which begins December 2. After hearing the series, you might consider giving a set to someone else as an Advent or Christmas present.
To help you do so, I'm making the following generous offer: if you buy a set for yourself now, the second set's on me! For an extremely limited time (i.e., until these first 100 copies of the set run out), for every set of "Victory Through Virtue" you buy (only $69.95 for the 12-CD set, containing 16 hours of instruction), I'll GIVE you an extra set for FREE that you can give away to a loved one! Consider this Biblical Foundations International's own "Cyber Monday" online pre-Christmas sale.
I have just one problem: although my producer Carlo is generously donating (in addition to his own labor) the blank CDs we are using to produce the sets, I still need to purchase the 2-ring binder albums and sleeves into which we place the finished CDs. (These are the same high-quality vinyl albums and sleeves you may be familiar with from our 6-CD "Counterfeit Catholicism" or 8-CD "Plot Against the Church" sets.)
But right now, as a result of my October and November lecture tours (which were a tremendous spiritual success but frankly a serious financial setback, since the trips cost more than they made), I don't have the money in the bank or on my credit cards with which to purchase the needed 100 albums and 600 sleeves from my supplier.
Can you help? If you'll simply purchase -- today, or as soon as possible over the next couple of days -- a copy of the 12-CD "Victory Through Virtue" set in response to this offer, your payment -- by PayPal, credit card (Discover, MasterCard, or Visa), or check or money order -- will give me the funds I need to be able to call my supplier and order the necessary albums and sleeves. As soon as I receive them and the remaining discs from my west coast producer, I'll assemble the albums and rush you a copy plus a second FREE copy.
A) The fastest and simplest way to purchase a set is to go straight to our online store, www.gerrymatatics.org/shop. Just order one set, not two: I'll remember to include a FREE second set with your order.
B) If for whatever reason you prefer not to purchase from our online store, a second option is to call me at (570) 969-1724. Please leave on my voicemail your MasterCard, Visa, or Discover Card's 16-digit number, expiration date, 3-digit security code from the back of the card, your name exactly as it appears on the card (including any middle initial), your credit card's billing address (I cannot charge your card without the above information), and your shipping address (if it differs from your card's billing address). Please leave a phone number where I can reach you if any part of your message is unclear or unintentionally incomplete. I'll take care of the rest.
C) A third option (the slowest) is to mail a check or money order for $69.95 plus $5 shipping and handling to: Gerry Matatics, PO Box 569, Dunmore PA 18512. Please make the check payable to either "Gerry Matatics" or "Biblical Foundations International."
Thanks for your order! I look forward to sending you this important new 12-CD set along with a FREE second set as my "thank you" for helping me to complete this key project in time for Advent and Christmas. May Almighty God abundantly shower you with many rich blessings now, during the coming introspective season of Advent, and throughout the following glorious Christmastide!
Yearning for the advent of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
