Stir Up Sunday and Advent is coming! GET READY!

Advent is upon us soon.  The Last Sunday of the Year is 26 November.  That is “Stir Up Sunday“, when you should prepare your Christmas puddings.

Think about getting your Christmas shopping done early.

First, remember always… always… to use my links and/or search box when you shop online on Amazon.



I have no idea who orders what.  I can see some things that are ordered however.  They don’t necessarily have to be religious items.  Yesterday readers ordered – among other things –

  • Conquering Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • TeckNet Ultimate Professional Optical Computer Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • Nature Nate’s, 32 Ounce, 100% Pure, Raw and Unfiltered Honey

Again, I have no idea who ordered these things, or if one or several ordered them.  However, I know that using a mouse can cause carpal tunnel, and that honey and mice don’t mix well.

Good gifts include…

Helping traditional Carmelite monks – their samplers could be good office worker gifts or stocking stuffers.

Give a membership to the beer club of the Benedictine monks of Norcia, building a monastery after the horrible earthquakes.  GREAT beer!

Help the Sisters! They have lots of postulants and no space.

There’s always my stuff

The wonderful Benedictine Sisters in Missouri have beautiful music CDs, including one for Advent.

And there are excellent Christmas music discs
