Are your prayer cards real cards you mail out?
No. This is a virtual card. You can only send and receive them via a
computer. We do not 'postal' mail cards out with this service.
Q: I sent my card but the person
never got it. Why?
There are several reasons why someone may not have gotten the card.
The first reason could be that their
Internet provider has a strong "SPAM" filter and is blocking the
card from coming into their mailbox. EWTN.com could be
seen as a generic IP address by many spam filters and a blocking
dynamic is added by them.
That can only be removed by the
individual whose address the card is going to.
Another reason could be their firewall
is blocking the email from coming into their email box.
You may also have typed the email
address wrong or put in a postal address.
Q: If they can't get the card due
to a spam filter or I don't know their email address, how can I get the
card to them?
First, send the card to yourself. You can then forward the card to
them. This will bypass the spam blocker.
If you don't have their email address,
you can print it out and give it to them. This way the prayer
request will be sent to the Religious community at EWTN for prayer.
Q: I posted a prayer request on
your bulletin board. I did not see it immediately. When will it be
Your prayer request will be reviewed and posted in a day or two. All
prayers are reviewed and may be edited before post.
Q: What is the strange letters at
the bottom of the form? What is the code I have to fill out before
it will submit? Why do I have to re-write the odd shaped characters?
At the bottom of our online forms, we have a product called Captcha.
This is a string of curved or odd
shaped letters that you must enter before your form is submitted.
In this world of hackers and spam,
EWTN has had to protect itself and it's supporters. Hackers have
developed spam robots that will fill in the forms and send unwanted
emails. These robots can not read this curved text and are stopped.
In a sense you are proving that you are a human when you enter this
code. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
