    Good afternoon,

    On the internet I have found this picture “The assumption of Mary” (http://www.canadiancatechist.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Francesco_Botticini_-_The_Assumption_of_the_Virgin.jpg) , which we would like to use for the catechesis for children. Would you kindly give us the permission to print this picture on the folder for the children? (Or whom can I ask for?) The folder will not be used for commercial purposes.
    Can you send as a description of this picture?
    If you are interested in our work, feel free to visit our website: http://www.glaubenserneuerung.de. We work within the Roman Catholic church for a new evangelization to preach the gospel to adults and children alike.

    Best regards,

    Hello, I’m the Editor in chief of ParishWorld.net. And we syndicate the brightest Catholic minds in our RSS feeds to our Mobile App. Our website http://www.parishworld.net will give you a better perspective about our ministry.

    With your permission I would like to include your blog among the many RSS feeds we feature. If you agree, there are a few requests I would like to ask to make your blog feed more attractive in our Mobile App. One, please add a photo for each blog post. And Two, please include the full article in the RSS feed. We noticed that blogs that do these two things get maximum traffic among our readers.

    Let me know what you think please. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Kindest regards and God bless.

      Hi Wally,

      I have no objections at all of having you feature my blog over your RSS feeds. I will also fulfill the requests you asked regarding the RSS feed. Today or tomorrow, I will be writing a new post.

    Hello Mr. Bastings,

    As you see, my name is Kevin Lents and I am a Catholic catechist from the diocese of Evansville, In.

    I wanted to tell you about the book project I have been working on, it seems, for many years now. It is called: “The Language of Dissent: Answering those who Distort the Catholic Faith” (I had a lot of help with this, including Catholic author Donna Steichen)


    Here is the description of the book:

    Kevin Lents, author of The Language of Dissent, does a tremendous job in answering those who distort the Catholic faith. In The Language of Dissent, Mr. Lents takes up issues such as:

    +Jesus did not know He was God.

    +There are errors in the Bible.

    +Adam and Eve are merely legends and myth.

    +Jesus really did not multiply the fishes and loaves.

    +The Catholic Church no longer teaches the doctrines of purgatory and Indulgences.

    +We do not know if Jesus actually performed any miracles.

    You can read a chapter of the book here:


    It is my hope you would find our book beneficial. Yes, we did enlist Fr. Hardon’s materials in our book. Fr. Hardon is *the best*. I hope and pray for your success in the Marian Catechist Apostolate. :^)

    God bless you,
    Kevin Lents
