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!

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.

It’s December 3rd and we are still completely up-to-date with year 2019 orders and we have even been able to say “Yes!” to Special Requests too ... so far! I say this every year: “Maybe this will be the Christmas Holiday where we do everything right!”

We have been enjoying making the new crosses with the medals we dug up after the flood and also using the medals that just did not quite make it through the creation phase for one reason or another. “THE MISFIT MEDALS” were in a big bin with nowhere to go because they are blemished in some way but we could not ever throw them away….

We have recently seen an increase in interest at SaintsforSinners for our Flood Medal Crosses (pictured above). These crosses have medals that were either recovered from after Hurricane Katrina, or medals that didn't quite make it through final inspection to sell. We are so excited that you like them!

because Rob is away and I’ve got to share this with everyone!

We received the sweetest SaintsforSinners testimonial from Shirley Lewis today:

"Today I was at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. and saw your SaintsforSinners medals in the gift shop! It makes me proud and happy! Well done!!"

Thank you, Shirley. You made my day. You made Rob's week, I'm sure. Thanks so much! I can't wait until he sees this.

Here’s just a short note and update with some very exciting news, along with some very cool photographs! Yesterday, I spoke with the folks at Paperwhite Stationery Boutique in Baton Rouge. Kathryn and Alisa ordered more medals, after their store was only open for two weeks!

Answers About the Synod and the “Controversy.” There are some Catholics who think Pope Francis went too far scheduling a Synod, or big meeting about the Climate Change Crisis.

I guess it is similar to what the Indians encountered by the development of their land back-in-the day.

First, one of the funnier things that happened. I arrived and stayed on Borgo Pio Strada, one of my favorite streets because some of the stores call themselves “Religious Articles Factories.”  My favorite is “Comandini S.”  Except it was disappointing at first….

I Simply HAD to send out this letter I received. It came yesterday - the day before the trip. It sort of astounded me - it is so nice and such a perfect “send off” for the trip. I cannot wait to send this “rainbow” kid, Henry, some items.
