Friends of Wiseblood,
Your donations have surpassed our original goal of $15,000. A slew of eleventh hour gifts pushed us even beyond $17,000! It is right and good for us to celebrate this, as these funds will raise Wiseblood to a new level of operation, especially in terms of publicity and distribution. I assure you that the celebration, coupled with countless prayers of gratitude, will soon give way to work.
In a recent interview with Catholic World Report I ended by insisting that "we ought to be tirelessly making and steering new naviculam, literary vessels that can navigate our contemporary waters, delivering the Catholic vision in an idiom that makes the moral depth of our heritage compelling, gives dramatic representation to the presence of grace as it appears in nature, and is charged with the beauty that shocks us out of ourselves and brings us to worship God’s goodness and submit to His truth." We have long looked for ways by which we can expand our readership, and now we have the means to pursue this expansion in concrete ways. Moving forward we seek not so much to increase the number of books we bring into being each year, as three or four carefully-chosen titles is just right for us at this present time. However, through your donations, we will be able to give each book we publish broader reach, thereby allowing us to do justice to these very fine novels, poetry collections, and monographs.
Thank you for giving.
We are grateful to be able to give you good things to read,
