We are moving along with the new advertising campaign and hired Photographer Tim Black for the photo shoot late this month. It’s very exciting that we’re also teaming up with Tisch Jewelers from Atlanta for the project. Some of their beautifully artistic pieces of jewelry, incorporating our medals will be on our model. Yes, we hired a model! Crazy!

Earth Day is coming up! So, we will send a little one of our stringed Franciscan Crosses with every order, until we run out. We bought them in Assisi and hope to go back to buy more soon. We can’t wait to get back to Rome, the Vatican, the Church of John Lateran and Saint Francis’ and visit Saint Clare of Assisi again. Think of all the surprises we will be able to send y’all like we always do!

In celebration of Easter, we are sending either a medal of Jesus (“Ecce Homo’) or Divine Mercy on a clasp with every order as a gift. And if you ordered one of those medals, we will send two, so it’s BOGO – Buy One, Get One Free

True love is not once in a lifetime. True love is every day. A 5 year-old boy knows this. We can all learn from him. Make love your holiday today!

TISCH Jewelry Werks has begun offering our medals incorporated into their jewelry. Our Saint Brigid medal looks beautiful surrounded by precious gems – maybe they are stones – we don’t know – but the finished product is stunning!

It has been a very long year. The protection from virus Saints, Sebastian and Rocco, may or may not have been asleep at the wheel since last March. But, things are a bit better.

There’s still time to have one of our hand-painted Saint Patrick medals arrive in time for Saint Patrick’s Day on March 17th. “Saint Paddy’s Day” always reminds us of the huge parades and celebrations in New Orleans every year. Except this year will be lot different because of COVID restrictions and limitations. Lots of green beer will still be indulged. The celebrations will be missed by many. But I guess there’s one “Silver Lining:” less green beer will wind up on the bars, floors, streets and sidewalks of New Orleans!

Hello! We’ve completed the new card design. The “greeting card/story” of the saint is much smaller, with all the content intact. The first saints to be mailed in the new design are Rocco, Kevin of Glendalough and Charles Borromeo, our patron invoked against ulcers, stomach disorders and Chrons Disease. In fact, sending  Saint Charles is a bit of a surprise because he doesn’t get out into the world much. We’re happy to send him though since he offers great protections!

     Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday - it's the first day of Lent, the 40 day period when we decide to improve ourselves and others, by working harder, trying more, caring about and helping those in need, and in the words of the Jesuits, "seeking peace by working for justice." And then we celebrate Easter and the Resurrection.       One fun way to become involved with Lent is by participating in "Lent Madness'' - www.Lentmadness.org  - Read on to review one of our prior emails about Ash Wednesday, Lenten Vows.     And be sure to watch ESPN's "Around the Horn" where you will see the...

Maybe the box we are sending you is in one of these photos - you asked us to send – all the Saint Valentine's Day Boxes are going out today.

      The other boxes will go out tomorrow or Wednesday. I know we asked for an extra week or two - extra time to get the boxes done but we didn’t watch much of the Super Bowl and finished up late last night.

Since a box begs for things to include, we are adding several Hand-Painted Saint Medals, on clasps and on chains. Some of our “love” saints and angels. Plus, the usual prayer cards and lagniappe. We are probably going overboard with the lagniappe this year but it’s intentional.  There’s extra time since Mardi Gras is on hiatus. We are very excited to be sending nearly all of these packages out today, February 6th. There are a couple “Special Requests” that we are going to fulfill and send soon too. We will mail items out tomorrow and Monday too, by Priority Mail.

We have 2 St. Valentine’s day boxes available. Thanks to Mizpah, the Sacred Hearts and red being rob’s favorite color, these boxes practically made themselves (I told rob I need to see a video of this cause I just couldn’t believe it!). If you want to claim one, just order a custom prayer box and put in the notes that you’d like St. Valentine.

You just can’t make this stuff up. Seriously! There’s a whole new Mardi Gras this year. It’s called “YARDI GRAS.” Folks are decorating their homes as though they are Mardi Gras floats. The family a few blocks away have made a float about the show, “Schitt’s Creek.”

Thanks for the responses from the Newsletter we sent out the other day. Some of the notes were very moving and very much appreciated.

A few more chapters of the book rob is working on have finally been finished and he has created a nice outline that’s possible to follow and begin moving further toward completion. So far, the stories of Saint Bernard, Saint Rosalie, along with Saint Maria Goretti, Dismas and the Miraculous Medal have weaved together fairly seamlessly. We offer thanks to the weaver’s saint, Anastasia, for helping us band anecdotes, undo knots, connect dots and whatnot to recall a simple story of a simple life. Again, with hopefulness and catharsis themed in a way that’s all kinds of exciting! Easy? No. Exciting? Yes!
