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.

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.

Think of all the surprises we will be able to send y’all like we always do!

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!
