Our Christmas Message & Offer
Hello Everyone -
We hope y'all are ready for an enjoyable Christmas Weekend, starting on Friday! All of the orders that have arrived are already prepared and on their way to you or your friends and family.
This is a truly busy, hectic time so there's no need to read further unless you want to place an order or hear about our latest chit-chat stuff. Merry Christmas!
Anyway, according to our local Post Office, packages that are mailed by Monday, December 21, 2015 or Tuesday, December 22, 2015 should arrive before Christmas by regular mail and overnight deliveries are also available. But the overnight expenses can be avoided by ordering as soon as possible. So, there is still time to order a special medal and have it in time for Christmas, and, of course, if you let us know we need to ship to a different address we are always happy to do that too.
Some Other News - Sugar Bowl & Football:
The Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes Benz Superdome here in New Orleans takes place on January 1st, 2016. If you are in town for the game, visit "What's New" in the 800 Block of Decatur Street, near the Saint Louis Cathedral to see our commemorative designs featuring www.TouchdownJesusMedals.com medals celebrating The University of Oklahoma and the Ole Miss Rebels. May the best team win! We're basically offering 2 for 1 with a Touchdown Jesus medal along with an oversized Holy Heart of Jesus design in the team colors. We thought maybe a guy would like wearing the small Touchdown Jesus medal and girls would like the large Holy Heart medal. It seems though, that whenever we try and predict what medals people will want to wear, based on gender, we are almost always wrong!
Saint Mother Teresa is Coming!
We're so excited that Pope Francis has paved the way for Mother Teresa to be Canonized in Rome next September. We have ordered more of her medals and will be adding one to each order that comes in during the month of January, 2016, as a special gift. Her story is already on the website - it's really not a story though - it's more of a quote from Mother Teresa that encourages all of us all to persevere and just keep trying when "the world kicks you in the face." It's a beautiful passage and we encourage you to read it.
Our Ambassador Singer Songwriter

Thanks and some counsel?
Thanks for all your encouragement and kind words and notes over the past several months. This has truly been a building year at www.SaintsforSinners.com and we know 2016 will be one of the best ones yet, thanks to the hard work so many have done to raise awareness about our designs and unique Ministry. We wound up having to take some steps backward, but our motto for 2016 is "Excelsior, Forever Upward!" FULL DISCLOSURE: We are borrowing that phrase from Rob's Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity days at The University of Charleston, West Virginia.
Please feel free to contact us - e mail, order, and/or call us ( 504.239.3143 ) if there's anything we can do to alleviate the stress of being in that "Final Christmas Countdown Crowd." As Steve Forbert sings in "You Cannot Win 'Em All," and as Mother Teresa reminds us.... It's ok to fall a bit behind or feel a tinge of Christmas blues, but we've got to stay in the game and "spread Christmas Cheer" whenever and wherever possible. We'll close with the wise words of Mother Teresa:
This is the story of the Inspirational Mother Teresa!
Invoked for help with inspiring doing good deeds
Mother Teresa's story took place pretty recently! 1n 1910, she was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in Yugoslavia, became an Albanian nun and founded The Missionaries of Charity. She spent her entire life helping others. Here is a one of Mother Teresa's inspirational philosophical prayers:
"People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
