Amy Welborn has an interesting post regarding a new idea from a group promoting Catholic evangelization.


CATHOLICI SUMUS is a non-profit Catholic organization formed to help bring about the late Pope John Paul II's vision of a new springtime for the Church. Our name
is Latin for "We are Catholic." We are advocates for the Catholic Faith. In
doing so, our goal is to help bring people into a closer relationship with
Jesus.
INNOVATE - That's how we plan to share our message. Our first initiative is to sell one million wristbands with the Latin phrase Periucundum Est Catholicum Esse. That translates to: "It's cool to be Catholic!" All profits from the sale of these wristbands will go to support our mission and the Church.
EVANGELIZE - It is our hope that these wristbands will become a way for Catholics to evangelize. Wearing the bracelet makes a statement. More importantly, every time someone inquires about the purple (the color of penance) band on a friend's wrist it opens the door for dialogue. This can be a welcoming opportunity and unassuming way for people to talk about their Catholic faith.
IMAGINE - One million Catholics wearing these wristbands, leading to millions of daily opportunities to share the faith!

See the wristbands at their website.

I think I'll stick with my usual evangelization accessories- chains, hairshirt, cilice, stigmata, and pocket-sized Summa Theologica. ;)

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama. My BF and I both agree that his son could not move into my home (which would ultimately be our home), so I am left to wait.
