We are adding more stories. We didn’t realize so many were missing… thank you for noticing and letting us know– they are going up today and for the next week they will keep going up as fast we can add them – plus, we are writing more.
OK, here we go with CV19 - Corona Virus 4 – As I’ve said, I do not like writing these CV19’s but y’all are opening them so I’ll write on yet another CV19 Topic. Gosh – I will be happy when I have nothing more to add about CV19 and can move along to something like bilocational saints or something else curious, interesting, and fun. BUT FOR NOW, it’s CV19, back-by-popular-demand, we will keep going with CV19
Here’s a little letter about some of the health care saints to think about and perhaps share their stories with others. Maybe your doctor, or a neighbor who’s a nurse, a sister who’s helping another with radiation treatments, a butcher to let them know they have a saint too, or a pediatrician, who helps young kids, or someone who is just feeling a little blue, and maybe needs a happy meeting to cheer them up! Let’s get this newsletter started.
As far as we can remember, we have never suggested that there is a living saint that we should pray to and ask for their help and more importantly ask for their well-being. There’s a first time for everything, though, and we will finish this newsletter asking you to pray for an actual living person, a living saint, for help with combating CV-19.
This has been one of the most difficult newsletters to write. Angst. I’m basically feeling full of angst and frozen. Saint Charbel please perform another miracle and cure me from this paralysis. I’ve been reading and studying and trying to write about this coronavirus and everything I type looks crass and hopeless. That’s the bad news….
On Wednesday, many decide to take a Lenten Vow. It might be giving up candy for 40 days. It might be deciding to say 5 kind things to people every single day for 40 days! Many go to Church and receive ashes on their forehead. This shows the world the person is celebrating and participating in the Lenten Period with a Lenten Vow.
Saint Valentine’s Day is coming very, very soon! Here’s to love and all that it brings to our lives. Go ahead and put some Bay Leaves in your pillow on Saint Valentine’s Day. You may have some very pleasant dreams….
Hi, this is Rob & Emily and we are sending you a reminder that Saint Valentine's Day is quickly approaching (next Friday, February 14th to be exact)! If you'd like to purchase a medal, specifically a Saint Valentine medal, please place your order soon so we can get it to you in time!
The environmental crisis is a crisis for which we are all responsible. Perhaps everyone does not view it from the same perspective as a saint or pope but we all bear some responsibility and we must recognize and take responsibility.
A very quick update, new medals, new store in Chicago, and a new offer about the Patron Saint of Athletes, Saint Sebastian
We are so excited that we heard from Kim M. in Geneva, Illinois, and now will be selling our medals at a new store! They have a great ministry where they comfort caregivers with a Caregivers Coffee Hour, among other things. If you are in or near Geneva, Illinois, visit The Catholic Shop of Geneva. The medals are in transit though, so wait until next week to see our hand-painted medals. Invite your friends nearby to go see our new medal display too!
A QUICK REMINDER! For those of you in New Orleans, don’t forget about the Saint Joan of Arc Parade and Fete on January 6th in the French Quarter. It’s a celebration of Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, birthday!
Christmas Review of Orders Sent, Sharing Some of Our News and Celebrating the Paton Saint of Friendship & Loyalty
Today we celebrate the life of Saint John the Apostle, the great friend of Jesus and the lone Apostle who loyally stood by him throughout his entire life. No wonder he is classified and known as the Patron of Friendship. We say Saint John is also the patron of loyalty too.
We here at www.SaintsforSinners.com have been hard at work, like little elves you might say, to make sure we get all of your orders out on time. We think we got everything out right, and into your hands to gift to your loved ones by Christmas Day. If not, we tried!
