Come by and meet Emily and my niece Casey, whom you have read about before. She’s the one who has the son, Dean, who looked at me looking at his Mom, Casey and said, “Look! Uncle Rob loves my Mom!” That was one of those special moments that came from nowhere “out of the blue.”

OK, since NO ONE WON the last contest, we are doubling the prize for this next contest. Whoever guesses who all of the saints are in this next set of photographs will win two prizes and we will try to actually sent them to the winner from ROME and HOPEFULLY FROM THE VATICAN POST OFFICE. I can’t guarantee we will be able to do it, because I don’t know if the post office at the Vatican is open! Hopefully it is!

We’re on our pilgrimage and thought we’d share a fun interactive quiz where there are actual correct answers, unlike the "Who’s Your Saint Quizzes" we answer with ideas and suggestions. No wrong answers, no wrong responses, just a heartfelt conversation is what we offer with the Who’s Your Saint Quiz! That’s why we fall behind sometimes. We give our Replies to Your Quiz, a thoughtful reply!

We decided to follow Gary’s advice and add a new brand name, SaintsforHope. It takes you straight to our website. We will be tinkering and making some additions and corrections. The funny thing is, Gary was prescient! If you watch our very first video clip, you will hear that Rob ends it with the word “HOPE.” It’s all very cyclical. So, if you know one of those people who says, “I’m not a sinner!” you can smile and say, “Visit SaintsforHope.com and there’s HOPE available there!”

Keaton is wearing Saint John Paul II, the patron saint invoked against Parkinson’s Disease. If you are a bit clairvoyant, you may start to see reasons why we are enamored with Keaton Baker…. The dots are connecting, slowly but surely. Stay tuned and ….

A lady found it recently! She opened the note inside and was told to go have a beverage to remember their son. That story made us think about car accidents, safety, traveling and texting. So, Our Lady of the Highway came to mind. Our Lady protects people traveling on roads and highways.

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!
