To honor Our Lady of Fatima: two free CDs!

To honor Our Lady of Fatima: two free CDs!


Dear Friends:

In honor of Our Lady of Fatima, and today’s 100th anniversary of her final apparition to the three seers on October 13, 1917, I am offering a free copy of my 2-CD set entitled “Every King Has a Queen Mother: The Biblical Basis of Catholic Teaching About Mary” (a $17.95 value, and one of our best-sellers) to anyone who might be interested in doing any one of the following three things:

1) Go to my online store at and order $100 of any combination of books and/or CDs you like. You needn’t include the “Every King Has a Queen Mother” CD set in your order, or indicate that you expect a free copy: one will automatically be included with the merchandise you order.


2) Sign up for at least two hour-long sessions on any Bible book or books that you wish to study with me — anything from the Bible’s first book (Genesis) to its last (the Apocalypse) or anything in between. I’ll teach you this book (or these books, if you choose more than one) using Skype, Google Hangouts, or whatever videoconferencing application or website you choose. Pay my low, low tutoring rate using PayPal, a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover), or check, and as soon as I receive your payment I’ll immediately put a copy of “Every King Has a Queen Mother” in the mail to you. NOTE: My discounted fee is only $50 an hour. Most college-level instructors — especially those with my level of education as well as professional teaching experience (faculty member on seven different colleges, universities, and graduate schools) — charge more.


3) Pick any one of the courses I teach in dogmatic theology, the Church Fathers, the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas and other great doctors of the church, canon law, philosophy, apologetics, logic, history (Church history, world history, US history), literature (world, English, or American literature), Latin, Greek, Hebrew, French, English grammar and composition, politics and economics — see the list that immediately follows — and take at least two hour-long sessions of instruction in this subject (or subjects: you could take two different courses and study an hour in each). Same terms as option 2 above.

This special, limited-time offer of a free copy of my 2-CD set “Every King Has a Queen Mother: The Biblical Basis of Catholic Teaching About Mary” (normally a $17.95 value) is only good for the next seven days, and expires at midnight on Friday, October 20. Act now!!

Yours in Our Lady of Fatima,

Gerry Matatics
