Hi friends and family,

I'm writing to request your prayers!  Tomorrow at 11:30 am EST I will be appearing on CNN's Newsroom discussing the topic of Catholic blogging during the Pope's visit.  I could use whatever media advice you have - I'm hoping to do my best to represent all of the hardworking souls who work to make CatholicMom.com all it has become.

So in the absence of unexpected last minute news (like earthquakes in Illinois), tune in and ask the Holy Spirit to help me along.

Thanks, as always, for the ongoing gift of your support!

Lisa
